Quote that rings true to my heart... especially recently
Recently, this statement has rung more true in my life than I can remember in the past. It is so true and I am so GRATEFUL for revelation and quiet promptings from the Spirit!
"The distinction between this great Church and that of all other churches from the beginning has been that we BELIEVE in divine revelation; we believe that our Father speaks to man today as he has done from the time of Adam. We believe and we know—which is more than mere belief—that our Father has set his hand in this world for the salvation of the children of men.
It is not only because we have faith in these books [the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price] that we are considered a peculiar people but also because we CONFIDENTLY believe that our Father in heaven has spoken in this day and age. In fact, we know that there is communication with the heavens. We believe that Jehovah has the same feeling towards us, the same influence over us that he had for and over his children who lived in this world in times that are past.
