Wednesday Words

Since I am going down to the temple tomorrow, I thought this month’s RS visiting message was perfect to share.

Robert D. Hales is quoted in our message: “The primary purpose of the temple is to provide the ordinances necessary for our exaltation in the celestial kingdom.  Temple ordinances guide us to our Savior and give us the blessings that come to us through the Atonement of Jesus Christ.  Temples are the greatest university of learning known to man, giving us knowledge and wisdom about the Creation of the world.  Endowment instructions give guidance as to how we should conduct our lives here in mortality. . .The ordinance consists of a series of instructions  on how we should live and covenants we make to live righteously by following our Savior.”

Pres. Boyd K. Packer says this about the  temple:  “Acting as proxy for someone who has gone beyond the veil, you will have reviewed before you the covenants that you have made. You will have reinforced in your mind the great spiritual blessings that are associated with the house of the Lord. . . .In the covenants and ordinances center the blessings that you may claim in the holy temple.”
