This general conference was incredible. We heard so many inspired messages and each talk was a reminder that Jesus Christ lives and this is His church. I was especially touched by the testimonies of the apostles and members of the First Presidency.
Hearing each of their testimonies strengthened my own, and it confirmed that these men are truly called of God to lead His Church in this day and age. Here are their powerful testimonies:
“I invite you to seek the Lord’s help in loving others as He has loved you. Let us all follow the counsel given by Mormon: ‘Wherefore, my beloved brethren [and sisters], pray unto the Father with all the energy of heart, that ye may be filled with this love, which he hath bestowed upon all who are true followers of His Son, Jesus Christ.’ Of these truths, I witness and do so in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.”
“I testify the fullness of His gospel and His plan of happiness are restored and taught in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in holy scripture, and by prophets from the Prophet Joseph Smith to President Russell M. Nelson today. I testify His covenant path leads to the greatest gift our loving Heavenly Father promises: ‘Ye shall have eternal life.’”
"So, choose faith in Christ; choose repentance; choose to be baptized and receive the Holy Ghost; choose to conscientiously prepare for and worthily partake of the sacrament; choose to make covenants in the temple; and choose to serve the living God and His children. Our choices determine who we are and who we will become.”
“[Jesus Christ] does not expect us to perform miracles. He asks only that we bring our brothers and sisters unto Him, for He has the power to redeem souls. As we do so, we can and will secure this promise: ‘And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.’ Of this I testify—and of Jesus Christ as our Savior and our Redeemer—in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.”
“Take heart, brothers and sisters. Yes, we live in perilous times, but as we stay on the covenant path, we need not fear. I bless you that as you do so, you will not be troubled by the times in which we live or the troubles that come your way. I bless you to choose to stand in holy places and be not moved. I bless you to believe in the promises of Jesus Christ, that He lives and that He is watching over us, caring for us and standing by us.”
