When you look back at scripture, it rarely feels unexpected. We know how it all turns out. But imagine if you were the people living it—if you didn't know He was coming back. If you were Mary and Martha after Lazarus dies, you would have thought He came too late. If you were Peter, you would have been appalled that the Master would lower Himself into your mess to wash your feet. If you stood at the foot of the cross and heard it was finished, you would have believed it was.

Although anyone can feel the power of the Holy Ghost and be guided by it, it's not until we are baptized that we are promised the gift of the Holy Ghost: the ability for the Spirit to stay with us at all times if we are worthy to receive Him. This is a promise so incredible that at times it can be hard to wrap our minds around, much less apply. What, exactly, does it mean to have the gift of the Holy Ghost daily, and how can it help us?

If you were to pick a few words to describe heroes in the scriptures, what would you choose? Chances are the list might include words like courageous, faithful, true, or obedient. Less likely options would be worried, fearful, depressed, or anxious. However, these words, just like the words on the first list, also describe our scriptural heroes.
