Third, those who receive by the Spirit intend to act. I think that James said it well, when he said that "faith without works is dead." Truer words have probably never been spoken. We are saved by the mercy of our Savior only after all we can do. We must be prepared to act upon the inspirations that we receive. If we are not willing to change our ways, to have a change of heart, "that we have no more disposition to do evil, but to do good continually" (Alma 5:2), then we will not receive as much of the message as those who are willing to make that change.
I hope and pray that we will prepare ourselves that we may hear the word of God in our Sunday School lessons as we study the scriptures and participate in the lessons taught each week. I testify that you do prepare to hear that message, if you study the scriptures outlined for that lesson, that you will find a message contained just for you to help you through your trials at that time. I testify that we can each have a spiritual experience each and every sunday as we attend our classes. In the name of my beloved Savior, even Jesus Christ, amen.
