4 Key Scriptures to Teach Personal Revelation to Teens

4 Key Scriptures to Teach Personal Revelation to Teens

Most teens (and many adults) struggle with understanding personal revelation. It's one of those tricky topics that can actually make us feel inadequate and disconnected from our Father in Heaven, rather than closer. This teaching tip focuses on helping teens understand what the Holy Ghost prompts us to do/become...rather than just how it feels.

You can find the links to the scriptures I mention below:

Galatians 5:22 - The Fruit of the Spirit...

D&C 11:12 - Trust in that Spirit which leadeth to do good...

Mosiah 3:19 - For the natural man is an enemy to God...

Moroni 7:16 - Everything which inviteth to do good and to persuade you to believe...

The quote about fleeting thought is from President Eyring's April 2016 Conference Address, Trust in That Spirit Which Leadeth to Do Good. It's a beautiful address and you should hear every word of it! Here's the link to the full talk. The quote I refer to is listed below.

"The Lord said, “And now, verily, verily, I say unto thee, put your trust in that Spirit which leadeth to do good—yea, to do justly, to walk humbly, to judge righteously; and this is my Spirit” (D&C 11:12).

You may have received that blessing tonight. For instance, a name or a face of someone in need may have come to your mind during this meeting. It could have been only a fleeting thought, but because of what you heard tonight, you will pray about it, trusting that God will lead you to do the good He wants for them. As such prayers become a pattern in your life, you and others will be changed for the better."

    Thanks, Maria! This is a really great explanation about different ways that we experience the Spirit. I especially like that you pointed out that it is not always a big dramatic feeling. I used to think I didn’t feel the Spirit while I was teaching at Church. I’ve since learned that the calmness I feel is the Spirit helping me.
