“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God w/all your heart & w/all your soul & w/all your strength” (Deut 4–5). This is known as the Shema, taken from the 1st word “hear” in Hebrew. Modern Jews consider the recital of the Shema both evening & morning to be 1 of their most sacred duties. It was cited by Jesus as the “greatest commandment in the Law” (Mat 22:36–37). This command seems to be impossible to obey. That’s because, in the natural state of man, it is impossible. There is no greater evidence of the inability of man to obey God’s Law than this one commandment. No human being w/a fallen nature can possibly love God with all his heart, soul, & strength 24 hrs a day. It’s humanly impossible. But to disobey any commandment of God is sin. Therefore, even w/out considering the sins we commit daily, we are all condemned by our inability to fulfill this 1 commandment. This is the reason Jesus continually reminded the Pharisees of their inability to keep the Law of God. He was trying to get them to see their utter spiritual bankruptcy and their need for a Savior. Without the cleansing of sin that He provides, & the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit who lives in the hearts of the redeemed, loving God to any degree is impossible. But, as Christians, we have been cleansed from sin & we do have the Spirit. So how do we begin to love God the way we should? Just as the man in Mk 9:24 asked God to help his unbelief, so too we can ask God to help us in areas where we don’t love Him with all our heart, soul, mind, & strength. It is His power that we need to do the impossible, we begin by seeking & appropriating that power. In most cases, our love & affection for God grows more intense as time goes by. Certainly, young Christians newly saved are very much aware of the love of God & their love for Him. But it is through the witness of God’s faithfulness during times of struggle & trial that a deep love for God
Choose to spend the rest of your life with someone who doesn’t just desire a lifetime on earth with you alone, but wants to spend eternity with Jesus. 📸: Marcus Gill  #marriagegoals #eternity #christianrelationship #kingdommarriage #godlymarriage #trustgod #trusthisgoodness #wisdom #seasons #waymaker #promisekeeper #knowyourworth #instafaith #faithgram #shereadstruth #hereadstruth #christianlifestyle #marriage #purpose #jesusgram #instalove #sacred_sexuality #livinginlight
Rome Italy Temple ... The dedication of the Rome Italy Temple is “a hinge point in the history of the Church,” said President Russell M. Nelson while visiting the ancient and great city where two millennia ago Peter and Paul preached and died. ... “Things are going to move forward at an accelerated pace,” said President Nelson. “The Church is going to have an unprecedented future, unparalleled. We’re just building up to what’s ahead now.” ... President Nelson’s words followed a historic weekend March 9–12 in which the leader of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints dedicated the Rome Italy Temple, addressed youth in the temple district, and met with Pope Francis—becoming the first prophet to have a formal audience with the head of the Roman Catholic Church. ... President Nelson was joined by every member of the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles in Rome, one of the most influential cities in the history of Christianity. The Church leaders stood together on March 11 in the Rome Italy Temple Visitors’ Center for iconic photographs—symbols of their unified testimony of the Savior Jesus Christ. ...

Therefore They Hushed Their Fears (Apr’15) Elder David A. Bednar ... Helaman admonished his sons, Nephi and Lehi: “Remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall” (Helaman 5:12). ... Ordinances and covenants are the building blocks we use to construct our lives upon the foundation of Christ and His Atonement. We are connected securely to and with the Savior as we worthily receive ordinances and enter into covenants, faithfully remember and honor those sacred commitments, and do our best to live in accordance with the obligations we have accepted. And that bond is the source of spiritual strength and stability in all of the seasons of our lives. ... We can be blessed to hush our fears as we firmly establish our desires and deeds upon the sure foundation of the Savior through our ordinances and covenants. ... #love #faith #hope #temple #teacher #leadership #charity #parenting #parents #youth #gospel #lds #eternity #mormon #apostle #sharegoodness #lighttheworld #ldsconf #example #calledtoserve #ldsquotes #priesthood #eternalfamily #declaremyword #generalconference #presnelson #russellmnelson #jesuschrist #davidabednar #elderbednar

Quorum of the Twelve Apostles ... “An ‘apostle’ is an ordained leader in the Melchizedek Priesthood in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Apostles are chosen through inspiration by the President of the Church, sustained by the general membership of the Church, and ordained by the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles by the laying on of hands. … In addition to serving as witnesses of Jesus Christ to all the world (Doctrine and Covenants 107:23), as Jesus’ apostles did, members of the current Quorum of the Twelve Apostles hold the keys of the priesthood—that is, the rights of presidency (Doctrine and Covenants 107:35; cf. 124:128)” (Encyclopedia of Mormonism [1992], 1:59–60). ...

Prophets, Leadership, and Divine Law (Jan’17) Russell M. Nelson ... In a coming day, you will present yourself before the Savior. You will be overwhelmed to the point of tears to be in His holy presence. You will struggle to find words to thank Him for paying for your sins, for forgiving you of any unkindness toward others, for healing you from the injuries and injustices of this life. You will thank Him for strengthening you to do the impossible, for turning your weaknesses into strengths, and for making it possible for you to live with Him and your family forever. His identity, His Atonement, and His attributes will become personal and real to you. But you don’t have to wait until then. Choose to be one of His true disciples now. Be one who truly loves Him, who truly wants to serve and lead as He did. ... #love #faith #hope #temple #teacher #leadership #charity #parenting #parents #youth #gospel #lds #eternity #mormon #apostle #sharegoodness #lighttheworld #ldsconf #example #calledtoserve #ldsquotes #priesthood #eternalfamily #declaremyword #generalconference #presnelson #russellmnelson #jesuschrist #leadership

¿Cómo creciste este año?  Ya se acaba una década y lo que antes parecía muy distante ahora es una realidad. "Cuando sea grande" ya no es algo lejano, es mi día a día y quizá también sea tu caso. Sin embargo por mucho que logremos vivir seguiremos siendo insignificante comparados a la eternidad.  Por esta razón me he puesto a pensar que quizá ya pasé una de la quinta parte de mi vida acá en esta tierra. No sé cuándo de este mundo partiré, pero de algo estoy seguro: encontrar la razón por la cuál estoy vivo realmente nos hace enfocarnos en magnificar ese propósito y dejar de vivir para lo cotidiano.  No hay nada más frustrante que llegar al final de una semana y pensar "no hice nada productivo". Imaginemonos lo fuerte que sería llegar a decir eso en nuestro lecho de muerte. Definitivamente no quiero eso, pero constantemente me pongo a pensar en que quizá hoy podría ser mi adiós.  Tal como el sol se despide y tiñe de color el cielo poco a poco podemos sentir el paso del tiempo y así el peso de nuestras acciones y más aún de aquellas que no hicimos. Por eso con la mirada en el cielo y conectado con nuestro llamado es importante recordar que acá no estaremos para siempre y que debemos ponernos a trabajar ya en lo que Él nos mandó a hacer acá en este mundo pasajero.  #porsuperfectoamor #amazing_shots #quepeladoguate #sunset #2019 #future #purpose #proposito #guatemala #eternity #lifeafterdeath #sunshine #cityscape
The First Presidency ... The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is led by 15 apostles, who are also regarded as prophets, seers and revelators. The man who has been an apostle the longest is the president of the Church, and by inspiration he selects two other apostles as counselors. These three function as the First Presidency, which is the highest governing body of the Church. (For information on the other 12 apostles, see Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, which is the second-highest governing body of the Church.) ... Members of the First Presidency are special witnesses of Jesus Christ, called to teach and testify of Him throughout the world. They travel frequently, addressing and encouraging large congregations of members and interested nonmembers, as well as meeting with local leaders. ... When they are not traveling, members of the First Presidency counsel together and with other general Church leaders on matters affecting the worldwide Church, such as missionary work, temple building, spiritual and temporal welfare and much more. ... President Russell M. Nelson, President Dallin H. Oaks and President Henry B. Eyring make up the First Presidency. ... #love #faith #hope #temple #teacher #leadership #charity #parenting #parents #youth #gospel #lds #eternity #mormon #apostle #sharegoodness #lighttheworld #ldsconf #henrybeyring #calledtoserve #preseyring #priesthood #presoaks #dallinhoaks #generalconference #presnelson #russellmnelson #jesuschrist

Luego de un noviazgo de casi tres años , la historia de amor de la cantante , actriz , ex integrante de #rbd , #DulceMaría y el director de cine , #franciscopacoÁlvarez vivió un nuevo capítulo luego de que celebraran su boda.

La boda fue TAN intima que en las invitaciones se podia leer para los invitados , "no subir a Internet ni a las redes sociales ninguna foto o video de la celebración" , ya que los novios le dieron la exclusiva a la revista #hola. Las actrices de #rebelde #zoraidagómez y #fernandafuzzmalo , fungieron el papel de damas de honor , mientras que #sherlyn , #aracelimali y #alexanderacha fueron otros de los famosos invitados a la velada. #dulcemaría lució un bello vestido blanco con encaje en las largas mangas y varias capas , y una hermosa tiara brillante , que sobresalía de su melena suelta. Se le veía radiante y feliz , de la mano de su ahora esposo , #pacoÁlvarez , quien también lució guapísimo en un smoking negro. La cantante, según las imágenes que se filtraron , lució dos vestidos diferentes para la ceremonia religiosa , y para la fiesta , donde se puede apreciar un ajuar blanco , muy parecido al primero , pero sin mangas ambos de #pronovias. Sin duda el vals fue uno de los momentos mas emotivos de la noche. En especial para la novia , quien estaba muy emocionada al bailar junto a su papá y su mamá. Luego los recién casados compartieron románticas miradas , mientras bailaban sobre la pista , ante la mirada de sus invitados.

“Gray hair is a crown of glory; it is gained in a righteous life.” (Proverbs 16:31).⁣ •⁣ My dad, when I was younger, would say to me that whenever I see an elderly person, to not be sad that they’re struggling, but to be happy that God granted them a long life. ⁣ •⁣ “Even to your old age I am He, and to gray hairs I will carry you. I have made, and I will bear; I will carry and will save.” (Isaiah 46:4). ⁣ •⁣ My Jida (grandfather) was known for his strong heart, his hard work, but most of all, because of his faith, and how he shared his love for God with everyone around him. My Jida has always had a very great impact on me within my faith. His favourite saint was St Charbel. One night he went to bed, unable to find his hearing aid. He had a dream; St Charbel appeared to him and told him exactly where it was. When he woke up, he found it. ⁣ I’m so blessed that God granted him 89 years, and God willing, an eternity in Heaven. ⁣ •⁣ “Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.” (Mother Teresa). ⁣ •⁣ Pray for all the elderly. The sick, those in nursing homes, those abandoned, the widows, those in purgatory, and those who have nobody to pray for them. ⁣ God, grant rest to the faithful departed, especially those who have gone to rest hoping in You.⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ #catholic #catholicism #christ #christian #christianity #maronite #jesus #jesuschrist #maronitecatholic #maronitecatholicism #elderly #grandparents #eternity #death #heaven #god #stcharbel #marcharbel #maronitecath
Repentance is Always Positive (Oct’17) Stephen W. Owen ... Too often we think of repentance as something miserable and depressing. But God’s plan is the plan of happiness, not the plan of misery! Repentance is uplifting and ennobling. It’s sin that brings unhappiness. Repentance is our escape route! As Elder D. Todd Christofferson explained: “Without repentance, there is no real progress or improvement in life. … Only through repentance do we gain access to the atoning grace of Jesus Christ and salvation. Repentance … points us to freedom, confidence, and peace.” My message to all—especially to the youth—is that repentance is always positive. ... When we speak of repentance, we aren’t just talking about self-improvement efforts. True repentance is more than that—it is inspired by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His power to forgive our sins. As Elder Dale G. Renlund has taught us, “Without the Redeemer, … repentance becomes simply miserable behavior modification.” We can try to change our behavior on our own, but only the Savior can remove our stains and lift our burdens, enabling us to pursue the path of obedience with confidence and strength. The joy of repentance is more than the joy of living a decent life. It’s the joy of forgiveness, of being clean again, and of drawing closer to God. Once you’ve experienced that joy, no lesser substitute will do. ... #love #faith #hope #temple #teacher #leadership #charity #parenting #parents #youth #gospel #lds #eternity #mormon #apostle #sharegoodness #lighttheworld #ldsconf #example #calledtoserve #ldsquotes #priesthood #strivetobe #declaremyword #generalconference #presnelson #russellmnelson #jesuschrist #stephenwowen #repentance

🤱𝙀𝙭𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙞𝙖 𝙢𝙪𝙮 𝙙𝙞𝙛𝙞́𝙘𝙞𝙡 🤱 . Cuándo sale el positivo, no te esperas está situación. . Tocar a tu hijo/a a través de un cristal, esperando a que le quiten cables, y la espera más esperada el poder llevartela a casa, que no sabes cuándo ocurrirá. . Las personas que hemos pasado por esto, hemos visto de todo, el día que yo me iba nació un bebé de 20 semanas, me alegraba por mí y no existe consuelo para otras personas, a pesar de haber intercambiado teléfonos. . 🤗 Gracias por todos los mensajes de ayer, yo sólo cuento mi experiencia, pero cuándo pensaba que era la única #instagram me regala la experiencia de otras madres 🤗 . Es duro sin duda, estar 22 días, pero otras personas han estado más tiempo que yo.... . 😓 Lo que no me parece nada bien, es que nos den el alta, y tengamos una habitación para compartir entre 6 o 7 personas, dónde no tenemos duchas ni nada, pero si la ayuda de otras personas que nos dejaban entrar en su habitación 😓 . Por otra parte están los familiares que sólo los pueden a través de un cristal y de ese cristal miran la incubadora, esto sí que lo entiendo, no todos pueden entrar, ya que ellos son muy pequeños y tienen las defensas muy bajas. . 🥰 Lo positivo es que volvería a pasar por está experiencia, porqué el resultado es lo que veis 🥰 . ➡️ ¿cómo te sentiste al ver a tu hijo/a por primera vez? . . . #maternity #34semanas #bebeprematuro #prematuros #parto #embarazo #mamaprimeriza #mama #maternidad #incubadora #reciennacido #amor #momlife #cute #baby #bts #family #house #babygirl #eternity #mommy #experiencia #esperanza #live #vida #colecho #pielconpiel #crecer #instadaily
Grateful in Any Circumstances (Apr’17) Dieter F. Uchtdorf ... How blessed we are if we recognize God’s handiwork in the marvelous tapestry of life. Gratitude to our Father in Heaven broadens our perception and clears our vision. It inspires humility and fosters empathy toward our fellowmen and all of God’s creation. Gratitude is a catalyst to all Christlike attributes! A thankful heart is the parent of all virtues. The Lord has given us His promise that those “who [receive] all things with thankfulness shall be made glorious; and the things of this earth shall be added unto [them], even an hundred fold, yea, more.” May we “live in thanksgiving daily”—especially during the seemingly unexplainable endings that are part of mortality. May we allow our souls to expand in thankfulness toward our merciful Heavenly Father. May we ever and constantly raise our voices and show by word and deed our gratitude to our Father in Heaven and to His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ. ... #love #faith #hope #temple #teacher #leadership #charity #parenting #parents #youth #gospel #lds #eternity #mormon #apostle #sharegoodness #lighttheworld #ldsconf #example #strivetobe #gratitude #priesthood #thanksgiving #declaremyword #generalconference #presnelson #russellmnelson #jesuschrist #dieterfuchtdorf #elderuchtdorf

🌟Temple #110 🌟 . Never would’ve guessed that temple #110 would only be 5 hours away. We have been so blessed to have gone to so many different Temples. Each Temple is so unique but the Spirit is the same. It truly is The House Of God and we love feeling at home when we go. 🏠 💓
