Pick a Favorite Promise or Invitation…

This article is a great summary of October General Conference 2019. The author went through each talk and found one promise or invitation in each talk given and then put it all together in one place:

This is my favorite promise:

Elder D. Todd Christofferson | “The Joy of the Saints

“With President Russell M. Nelson, I testify that joy is a gift for faithful Saints ‘who have endured the crosses of the world’ and who are ‘intentionally trying to live a righteous life, as taught by Jesus Christ.'”

Elder Christofferson testified of my favorite promise, because he is talking about the why. Why be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at all? Because when we are faithful, God blesses us. It is a promise. An “immutable covenant.”

This is my favorite invitation:

Elder Gary E. Stevenson | “Deceive Me Not

“There is much we can learn from Moses’s mighty response to temptation from the adversary. I invite you to respond the same way when you feel influenced by temptation (or for me, Susan, discouragement or persistent comparison). Command the enemy of your soul by saying: ‘Go away! You have no glory. Do not tempt or lie to me! For I know I am a child of God. And I will always call upon my God for His help.'”

When I feel a negative, repetitive thought, “I think, ‘Get thee hence!'” This command from Elder Stevenson is even better.

This promise and invitation resonated so much with me! What promises or invitations from this lastest conference have had a powerful impact on you?
