D&C 25—Emma Smith was called to do many important works in support of the restoration of the gospel and her husband. How does the Lord’s revelations for her help us learn to be more supportive, avoid pride, and draw closer to God? Eric Meldrum joins us.
1 Corinthians 11-14 – Paul instructs on a number of issues: familial relationships, the emblems of the sacrament, and spiritual gifts. How are husbands and wives intertwined with the Lord? Why are ordinances like the sacrament important? Do you know your spiritual gifts?
How do we have our will swallowed up by that of the Father? Christ is a perfect example of obedience. The bar is surely high, but we are promised great blessings as we strive to forget ourselves and submit to the Lord. We need the Atonement and shouldn’t dare attempt to live without it.
John 16-17 – Let’s talk about feeling the Holy Ghost and the Gift of the Holy Ghost. Why is it so hard to learn how to interpret the promptings of the Spirit? Jesus offers the great intercessory prayer. Why is this prayer important? Why was it important for the Apostles to be one?
Isaiah 54-56; 63-65 – Ever wonder why Mormons have “stakes”? Isaiah is why. How do we not just enlarge out stakes, but also strengthen them? Sometimes too easily we focus on proclaiming the gospel but not perfecting the saints. How will Christ gather his children? What will change with the Millennium? Rachel Murdock is here and she’s awesome!
Proverbs & Ecclesiastes – In this all-around lesson, we use the words of Proverbs and Ecclesiastes to discuss topics of note to the saints. The key here is to really pray and utilize specific passages in order to create a topical discussion. Kurt Francom of LeadingLDS is with us.
Abraham 1; Genesis 22 – Abraham is commanded to sacrifice Isaac, a child that he struggled for many years to conceive. Could you sacrifice your child if the Lord required it? What do we learn from Abraham and Sarah’s faith? What of Hagar?
