Love is the very essence of the gospel, and Jesus Christ is our Exemplar.

President Thomas S. Monson April 2014 general conference

President Thomas S. Monson

“We cannot truly love God if we do not love our fellow travelers on this mortal journey. Likewise, we cannot fully love our fellowmen if we do not love God, the Father of us all. The Apostle John tells us, ‘This commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also’ (1 John 4:21). We are all spirit children of our Heavenly Father and, as such, are brothers and sisters. As we keep this truth in mind, loving all of God’s children will become easier.

“Actually, love is the very essence of the gospel, and Jesus Christ is our Exemplar. His life was a legacy of love. The sick He healed; the downtrodden He lifted; the sinner He saved. At the end the angry mob took His life. And yet there rings from Golgotha’s hill the words: ‘Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do’ (Luke 23:34)—a crowning expression in mortality of compassion and love.”

Faith is the antidote for fear.

Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, April 2014 general conference

Elder Russell M. Nelson

“Faith is the antidote for fear. …

“When we speak of faith—the faith that can move mountains—we are not speaking of faith in general but of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ can be bolstered as we learn about Him and live our religion. The doctrine of Jesus Christ was designed by the Lord to help us increase our faith. …

“We might each ask ourselves, where is our faith? Is it in a team? Is it in a brand? Is it in a celebrity? Even the best teams can fail. Celebrities can fade. There is only One in whom your faith is always safe, and that is in the Lord Jesus Christ. And you need to let your faith show!”

Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, April 2014 general conference

We must choose whom to follow.

President Boyd K. Packer President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles April 2014 general conference

President Boyd K. Packer

“Let us remember that there is an adversary who personally seeks to disrupt the work of the Lord. We must choose whom to follow. Our protection is as simple as deciding individually to follow the Savior, making certain that we faithfully will remain on His side.

“In the New Testament, John records that there were some who were unable to commit to the Savior and His teachings, and ‘from that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.

“‘Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?

“‘Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.

“‘And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God’ (John 6:66–69).

“Peter had gained that which can be learned by each follower of the Savior. To be faithfully devoted to Jesus Christ, we accept Him as our Redeemer and do all within our power to live His teachings.”

President Boyd K. Packer, President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, April 2014 general conference

One should not roam through garbage.

Elder Marcos A. Aidukaitis of the Seventy April 2014 general conference

Elder Marcos A. Aidukaitis

“The Internet provides many opportunities for learning. However, Satan wants us to be miserable, and he distorts the real purpose of things. He uses this great tool to promote doubt and fear and to destroy faith and hope.

“With so much available on the Internet, we must carefully consider where to apply our efforts. Satan can keep us busy, distracted, and infected by sifting through information, much of which can be pure garbage.

“One should not roam through garbage.

“Listen to this guidance, provided by the scriptures: ‘The Spirit of Christ is given to every man, that he may know good from evil; wherefore, I show unto you the way to judge; for every thing which inviteth to do good, and to persuade to believe in Christ, is sent forth by the power and gift of Christ; wherefore ye may know … it is of God’ (Moroni 7:16).”
