Bullets of Elder Scott's Address

What are some of the empowering principles upon which faith is based?

• Trust in God and in His willingness to provide help when needed, no matter how challenging the circumstance.

• Obedience to His commandments and a life that demonstrates that He can trust you.

• Sensitivity to the quiet promptings of the Holy Spirit.

• Courageous implementation of that prompting.

• Patience and understanding when God lets you struggle to grow and when answers come a piece at a time over an extended period.

To summarize:

• God uses your faith to mold your character.
• Character is the manifestation of what you are becoming.
• Strong character results from consistent correct choices.
• The bedrock of character is integrity.
• The more your character is fortified, the more enabled you are to exercise the power of faith.

May I share four principles which have brought the deepest feelings of peace and happiness into my own life? The Lord has established these cornerstones in His eternal plan, and each one is essential. All work together in harmony and reinforce one another. When they are applied with diligence and consistency, they produce strength of character, increasing ability to convert the challenges of life into stepping-stones of happiness now and forever. They are:

• Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His program to acquire the power to achieve.
• Repentance to rectify the consequences of mistakes of omission or commission.
• Obedience to the commandments of the Lord to provide strength and direction in our lives.

• Selfless service to enrich the lives of others.

The latest General Conference magizine is out and available for all! Not only in local LDS stores, but also on the internet  thanks to advancing technology that our Father in Heaven has blessed us with in these latter days. This is only a glimpse of what Elder Scott, an apostle of the Lord spoke about. Please take time to not only read but listen to what each has to say as they are truly inspired by the magnificant power of the Holy Ghost, who will also testify to you that these men are truly called of God to guide us out of these dark days into an eternally bright future.
