The Lord told the prophet Joseph Smith to “say nothing but repentance unto this generation” (D&C 6:9), and President Russell M. Nelson reiterated this counsel in his priesthood session talk in our last General Conference. President Nelson taught that everyone needs to repent, and emphasized the "broader meaning of the word repent," which is focused on complete conversion and the Lord’s invitation to “change the way we love, think, serve, spend our time, treat our families, teach our children, and even care for our bodies."
In what ways can and should we repent? How does purposeful and sincere partaking of the sacrament each week help facilitate our personal repentance?
The stake council is studying the topic of repentance this month, and in particular the way in which purposeful and sincere partaking of the sacrament each week helps facilitate our personal repentance. Look for sacrament meeting talks on this subject on May 26, and in the meantime consider in what ways can and should we repent? In what ways can the sacrament help us do so?
