A Most Wondrous Gift

Imagine waking up Christmas morning and in the midst of all the neatly wrapped presents is one labeled:

To: [Insert your name]
From: Heavenly Father
Heart racing, mind whirling you open up the present and find The Gift of:

Thank goodness for the description on the back:
The gift of the Holy Ghost is the right to have the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost.
Prior to baptism, we feel the power of the Holy Ghost, which can guide us and testify to us.
The gift of the Holy Ghost is a more powerful and sustaining influence.
This gift is given by the laying on of hands of those authorized to hold the priesthood.
This is received after the baptism by water.

To sum it up:
1. The Holy Ghost can be your constant companion!
2. It comes after baptism by someone holding the priesthood of God.
3. It is more powerful than the Spirit we feel prior to the reception.
Think about it, this is one of Heavenly Father's most precious gifts.

But that's not all. Look at what it includes:
-Cleansing Effect
-Knowledge and Truth

This is the ultimate gift! It can do practically anything! 

But wait:

Guess what? The gift of the Holy Ghost is only activated by our personal righteousness.
When we are worthy, the Spirit is with us. When we are not worthy, our gift doesn't work.

                Feelings of love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance will occur when using this product. See Galatians 5:22-25

Check out what a messenger of God says about this gift:
In simple terms, the gift of the Holy Ghost is an enhanced spiritual power permitting those entitled thereto to receive it, to receive a greater knowledge and enjoyment of the influence of Deity.
                                                                                                -President James E. Faust

What can you do to include the gift of the Holy Ghost in your life?

Friends, life will be too difficult without the help of the Holy Ghost. Work towards being able to enjoy this wonderful gift our Loving Heavenly Father is willing to give to us!

In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen
