Day 3 - Obedience - Be Obedient and Be Blessed –
· As the Savior instructed His early Apostles, so He instructs you and me, “Follow thou me.” Are we willing to obey?
· Missionaries quickly learn that the reward for obedience is the constant companionship of the Holy Spirit. With that companionship a missionary cannot fail. So, it is with us as we strive to do what is right – we will always have the companionship of the Holy Ghost to guide us. (Romans 5:19)
· D&C 130:21 When we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated
There are rules and laws to help ensure our physical safety. Likewise, the Lord has provided guidelines and commandments to help ensure our spiritual safety so that we might successfully navigate this often-treacherous mortal existence and return eventually to our Heavenly Father. My brothers and sisters, the great test of this life is obedience. “We will prove them herewith,” said the Lord, “to see if they will do all things whatsoever the Lord their God shall command them.” (Obedience brings blessings, Thomas S. Monson, April 2013 Conference)
