4 years of President Nelson as prophet: A look back at 6 of his historic invitations

Intellectual Reserve, Inc.

Since becoming the 17th President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on January 14, 2018, President Russell M. Nelson has used general conference, social media, and other means to extend several invitations to Latter-day Saints worldwide—invitations to act in faith.

President Nelson reiterated many of these invitations in a recent social media post on January 1 for those making resolutions for the coming year. His suggestions included strengthening one’s spiritual foundation, letting God prevail, eliminating contention, and being persistent in efforts to “hear Him.”

At the close of the October 2021 general conference, President Nelson—a world-renowned heart surgeon and medical researcher before entering full-time Church service in 1984—pleaded with listeners worldwide to counter the lure of the world by making time for the Lord every day. “Nothing invites the Spirit more than fixing your focus on Jesus Christ,” he said.
