Week 24: Memb 70, More Miracles
Elder Craig A. Cardon was our guest speaker at zone conference on Wednesday. I was fortunate enough to hear from him while I was in the MTC, so now I've had the chance to hear from him twice!! Elder Cardon loves referencing scriptures to back up his talks. He'll often give us a scripture to locate, then he'll make a comment or two and find another scripture to reference, which I quite like because you're never bored and it's interactive and provides opportunities for you to participate. Today he talked a lot about the Abrahamic Covenant which is something I know very little about. It's basically a promise that the descendants of Abraham (whether blood related or adopted) will inherit eternal life, which not only includes being able to live with our Heavenly Father, but gives us an opportunity to become more like him. The purpose behind discussing the Abrahamic Covenant was to answer the question of "Who are you, and What does God expect of you?". Unfortunately, the best I can do is summarize, but basically as missionaries, we are not only God's children but we have been found worthy as one to represent Him despite our weaknesses. According to the Abrahamic Covenant, we've been promised eternal life and are considered to be an extension of God's arm. SO that's pretty cool if you ask me.
