As we prepare to study the Savior’s parables--or any of His teachings--a good place to start is to examine our hearts and determine whether we are giving the word of God “good ground” in which to grow, blossom, flourish, and produce fruit that will bless us and our families in abundance.

Come Unto Christ

“Come Unto Christ.” What does this mean, and why would we choose this as our new name? Perhaps it’s important to first understand who Christ is—and that He’s proof that God loves all of us. #ComeUntoChrist

Today the need for more laborers to serve Heavenly Father’s children is just as great. There are still twelve Apostles, but there are more disciples of Jesus Christ than ever before--people who can declare to all the world, “The kingdom of heaven is at hand”

How can you be a better disciple of Christ?

Jesus taught that being His disciples requires us to put Him first in our lives, even if that sometimes means we must sacrifice other things that we value.

What might you need to give up in order to put Jesus first?

Members of the Church of Jesus Christ declare that a temple is literally the house of the Lord. Each temple is a holy sanctuary in which sacred ceremonies and ordinances of the gospel are performed—by and for the living and also in behalf of the dead.

I invite you to enjoy this video and see inside one of our temples. In this recording, made in the Rome Italy Temple, you will hear from two Apostles of the Lord about promises devout members make there to become better people by following our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ is at the center of His Church. To better align with the name He has given to the Church, the names of many of the Church’s global communication channels will be changed as follows:

LDS.org will become ChurchofJesusChrist.org.
The missionary-focused website Mormon.org will be changed to ComeUntoChrist.org.
Church social media accounts will emphasize the name of the Savior’s Church.

"What a blessing it is to have you here at the Salt Lake (U of U) Institute of Religion. The great blessing and purpose of Institute is "to help young adults understand and rely on the teachings and Atonement of Jesus Christ, qualify for the blessings of the temple and prepare themselves, their families, and others for eternal life with their Father in Heaven." Today we are inviting you to bring one person to institute and have them sign up for a class.

Institute provides lots of different blessings for young adults. I have spoken with hundreds of young adults who share that the reason they are attending institute classes and events is because someone invited and brought them. I promise you that when you come and engage in the readings for class, in class itself, and you invite and bring a friend the spirit of the Lord will radiate in your life and your testimony of Jesus Christ will burn more deeply within you! I promise!!"
