Bringing Salvation to All Men
On Wednesday, we met with Laura in the chapel, a new investigator with a member to accompany us. My companion began the lesson getting to know her a bit and talking about God´s plan for us. Then I started teaching about when we all lived with God as His spirit children in Heaven, and how we all understood and accepted His plan before coming to earth. She stared at me in a look of awe. She interrupted and said sorry, but I feel a strong strange feeling in my chest that just fills me. The spirit immediately came over all of us.
After teaching the Plan of Salvation so many times, I understand more clearly God´s love for each of us as His family. I explained to her that it was the Holy Ghost she was feeling testifying to her of these things. She told us she´s gone to many churches before, but that something was always pulling her to come here, and she feels something special every time.
It was a great experience. We also invited her to baptism at the end which she accepted. She said that when I began speaking, it was as if my words struck her, or that they were the words she needed to here. In the moment, I remembered Elder Eyring´s last conference talk in Priesthood session when he asks ¨would anyone use the phrase ´ministering of angels´to describe my priesthood service?¨ I related myself with that in the moment. Christ´s church is upon the earth with God´s restored Priesthood. We are His servants here to bring the salvation unto all men. I testify that this is true, that God always knows the best way, and that He has a plan for all of us!
