Feasting Upon the Word

February 7, 2007

As I’ve written previously, my personal testimony stems from the witness of the Holy Ghost as I’ve studied the words of ancient prophets in The Bible and The Book of Mormon and as I’ve been taught by living prophets and apostles and participated in the ordinances and covenants that have been restored through them.

Recently, Elder David A. Bednar, one of the living apostles of Jesus Christ on the earth today, gave an address to college-aged adults over the Church’s satellite system. The topic of his message was the importance of studying the scriptures by 1) reading them chronologically, 2) studying by topic, and 3) searching for patterns and themes. He emphasized that understanding spiritual truths in the scriptures is a privilege of all of God’s children who are willing to diligently study and seek the guidance of the Holy Ghost. It’s a wonderful message for all Christians, descriptive of an activity that strengthens my hope in my Savior each day. The audio from the satellite broadcast can be streamed from the lds.org website here.
