Today’s inspiration is drawn from “Be Ye Converted” by Bonnie L. Oscarson, Young Women General President, during October 2013.
In a world filled with constant change and distractions, the concept of true conversion often seems distant. But as we reflect on Bonnie L. Oscarson’s powerful message, “Be Ye Converted,” we find guidance on how to embark on the journey of genuine conversion.
Scripture: Joshua 24:15 – Choosing Whom to Serve
“Choose you this day whom ye will serve; … but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
The message begins with a tribute to the heroes of faith, like the prophet-warrior Joshua, who unwaveringly chose to serve the Lord despite challenges. Such heroes exemplify the essence of true conversion.
The narrative then shifts to a touching family history—a story of Agnes Hoggan, who made a profound sacrifice for her daughter’s spiritual well-being. Her unwavering faith serves as a beacon of true conversion.
The message emphasizes the pivotal role of choices in our lives and underscores the eternal consequences they carry. The decisions we make today profoundly impact our future.
True conversion transcends mere knowledge or testimony; it requires us to act upon gospel principles, allowing them to transform our hearts and lives.
Conversion isn’t an instantaneous event but a continuous process. It involves faith, righteous efforts, and a commitment to living the principles of the gospe
A crucial insight emerges: faith precedes the witness. We must exercise faith by living gospel principles before we can receive a testimony of their truth.
The story of the author’s youth highlights the power of living true gospel principles, such as the Word of Wisdom. These principles not only protect us but also deepen our conversion.
In conclusion, the message reminds us that today’s youth live in a unique time with the Come, Follow Me curriculum designed to foster conversion. Our commitment to gospel principles influences our future.
As we reflect on the principles of true conversion, let us embrace the journey of faith and righteousness. It’s time to prioritize our personal conversion and allow it to guide our actions.
Just as heroes like Agnes Hoggan and Joshua made profound choices, we too can make choices that will bless our lives and the lives of countless others.
In a world yearning for light and truth, our individual conversion stories can become beacons, guiding others towards the path of righteousness. Let our faith be a source of inspiration, hope, and positive change in the world.
As we heed the call to true conversion, we become instruments in the hands of the Lord, helping to make the world a better place—one converted heart at a time. Link to the original: Be Ye Converted
