In the Language of Eternity

Can I just share this talk about how powerful art is? I just love art so so much and the only other thing that has a greater impact on me is the true gospel of Jesus Christ. Part of that gospel includes God’s great purpose for all of us. We learn from the scriptures that Heavenly Father’s work and glory is “to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man” (Moses 1:39 from the Pearl of Great Price).  Our whole purpose here is to achieve that eternal life and help others to as well. Elder M. Russell Ballard (one of the current twelve apostles of the church) said that “Inspired art speaks in the language of eternity, teaching things to the heart that the eyes and ears can never understand.” I know art can be such an effective tool in God’s hands! I know that I don’t ever have to compromise art or the gospel and that I can stengthen both my testimony and those of others’ through the work of my own hands!
“Heavenly Father’s purpose for the artist (and there is an artist of some sort in each of us) is to use his or her creativity to help to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of his children. Whether we declare the gospel in quiet, individual ways, or boldly proclaim that Jesus Christ is the Savior, we must strive to understand our role in his purpose.”
Please check out the rest of this talk! You will be happy you did.

About sisterweber

I am currently a Mormon missionary serving in western New York for The Church of Jesus Chirst of Latter-Day Saints! Let me tell you how strange I am currently - I don't watch tv or any form of entertainment; I left behind my family, home, school, and art I love so so much; I'm working 6 days a week, 14 hours a day to bring people unto Christ; I'm not getting paid (I'm actually paying); and I CHOSE to do it! The reason why? I know this is the most important thing I could ever do. I know that there is nothing in all the world that can bring people greater happiness than the Gospel of Jesus Christ in its fulness. This message I'm sharing with people is unique and true. God loves all of us so much that He has restored the church Jesus Christ set up onto the earth again, and all people have a right to know. Everyone has a right to be as happy as I am.
