Continue Ye in My Love

Somehow in this episode I start off talking about dirty feet and end up talking about eternal life. This picture is proof of my dirty sandal feet expertise.

Quotes used in this episode

“The Lord will accept that which is enough, with a good deal more pleasure and satisfaction than that which is too much and unnecessary.”

-Joseph F. Smith

“When Jesus gave His disciples a new commandment to ‘love one another; as I have loved you’ He gave to them the grand key to happiness in this life and glory in the next. “Love is the greatest of all the commandments-all others hang upon it. It is our focus as followers of the living Christ”

-Joseph B. Wirthlin

“So feeding the hungry, healing the sick, rebuking hypocrisy, pleading for faith–this was Christ showing us the way of the Father, He who is ‘merciful and gracious, slow to anger, long-suffering and full of goodness’ In His life and especially in His death, Christ was declaring , ‘This is God’s compassion I am showing you, as well as that of my own’”

-Jeffrey R. Holland


“How glorious it is to contemplate that we have been invited into that perfect unity that exists with the Father and the Son. How can this happen? Sure we will not be one with God and Christ until we make Their will and interest our greatest desire. Such submissiveness is not reached in a day, but through the Holy Spirit, the Lord will tutor us if we are willing until in process of time, it may accurately be said that He is in us as the Father is in Him. At times I tremble to consider what may be required, but I know that it is only in this perfect union that a fullness of joy can be found.”

-D. Todd Christofferson



“Come, but come to remain Come with conviction and endurance. Come permanently, for your sake and the sake of all the generations who must follow you… “Jesus said, ‘Without me ye can do nothing’ I testify that that is God’s truth. Christ is everything to us and we are to ‘abide’ in Him permanently, unyieldingly, steadfastly, forever. For the fruit of the gospel to blossom and bless our lives, we must be firmly attached to Him, the Savior of us all and to this His Church, which bears His holy name. He is the vine that is our true source of strength and the only source of eternal life.”

-Jeffrey R. Holland



“Father in Heaven knew that you would face challenges and be required to make some decisions that would be beyond your own ability to decide correctly. In His plan of happiness, He included a provision for you to receive help with such challenges and decisions during your mortal life. That assistance will come to you through the Holy Ghost as spiritual guidance.”

-Richard G. Scott


“To know God is to think what he thinks, to feel what he feels, to have the power he possesses, to comprehend the truths he understands, and to do what he does. Those who know God become like him, and have his kind of life, which is eternal life.”

-Bruce R. McConkie


“eternal life is not a name that has reference only to the unending duration of a future life; immortality is to live forever in the resurrected state, and by the grace of God all men will gain this unending continuance of life. But only those who obey the fulness of the gospel law will inherit eternal life.  It is the greatest of all the gifts of God for it is the kind, status, type and quality of life that God himself enjoys. Thus those who gain eternal life receive exaltation; they are sons of God, joint-heirs with Christ, members of the Church of the Firstborn; they overcome all things, have all power, and receive the fullness of the Father. They are gods.”

-Bruce R. McConkie
