I’ve found this next topic I’ll be writing about something very special and dear to me. I’ve grown and learned most about this topic throughout my life, but I feel like it was meant for me to learn about this topic the most. The topic I will be talking about is The Gift of the Holy Ghost.
I have a huge testimony of the Holy Ghost. I feel like I would be on a totally different path right now if it wasn’t for the guidance of the Holy Ghost. Not only has the Holy Ghost helped me with my decision making, but the Holy Ghost has also helped me avoid making wrong decisions and choices.
John chapter 14 verse 26 says, “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” I love this scripture. The Holy Ghost is our personal compass, our personal instructor, and only wants to help us and guide us back to our Heavenly Father. I also love how we refer to the Holy Ghost as “the Comforter” because he really is our comforter. He is there to make us feel safe and comforted, and to help guide us through our daily lives and struggles.
“Revelations from the Father and the Son are conveyed through the Holy Ghost. He is the messenger for and the witness of the Father and the Son” (David A. Bednar). The Holy Ghost is there to testify, within us, of our Savior, Jesus Christ and of our Heavenly Father. The Holy Ghost is a special gift to us from our Heavenly Father to help us and guide us back to him. “As a member of the Godhead, and being one with the Father and the Son, the Holy Ghost is, as are the Father and the Son, omniscient. He comprehends all truth having a knowledge of [all] things” (Marion G. Romney). The Holy Ghost is the third member of the Godhead and is the messenger between Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and us.
I truly believe that the Holy Ghost is there to help and to guide us back to our Heavenly Father. By doing that, he testifies, and whispers truth to us all the time. It is our Duty to become and stay worthy so we can value and use the gift of the Holy Ghost. I’m truly thankful for the Holy Ghost and all that he’s done for me. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
