Elder S. Gifford Nielsen of the Seventy

Tuesday devotional,  November 28, 2017


Elder S. Gifford Nielsen:

  • You will know if someone is praying if they are involved with the Book of Mormon.
  • Over 180 million copies of The Book of Mormon have been printed, in 111 languages.
  • We need to liken the Book of Mormon scriptures to ourselves
  • Do you have a personal testimony of the Book of Mormon?
  • The Book of Mormon is the keystone in 3 ways:  1) It is a true witness of Christ  2) It contains the fulness of the Doctrine of Christ  3) It is the foundation of testimony regarding this latter-day work.
  • The Book of Mormon is a powerful resource.  Use it as the basis of all your teaching.
  • What is your favorite Book of Mormon scripture and why?
  • Consider 1 Nephi 13:37 — “..how beautiful are the feet of those who publish peace..”
  • Consider Alma 57:21 — “.. they obeyed with exactness..”
  • Consider Alma 29:9 —  Don’t glory in yourselves.  You are instruments!
  • Consider 2 Nephi 32:3 — “..feast upon the words..”
  • Have your own ‘Enos’ experience.
  • Elder Nielsen’s favorite Book of Mormon scripture is found in 3 Nephi 11 where the Father states that the Savior is His ‘..beloved Son..’.
