LDS Study Session seeks to generate reflection and about areas in the Restored Gospel. Whether it's Come Follow Me, a General Conference talk or a recent Gospel Topic, hopefully you'll find something to keep the Spirit of Christ in your life. @mattsroberts90ldsstudysession@gmail.comJoin us as we consider the importance of the covenant path and its relevance in the latter days for us. We recognise its meaning and reflect on why this phrase is being used more increasingly in General Conference messages.2 Nephi 31:18-20:18 And then are ye in this strait and narrow path which leads to eternal life; yea, ye have entered in by the gate; ye have done according to the commandments of the Father and the Son; and ye have received the Holy Ghost, which witnesses of the Father and the Son, unto the fulfilling of the promise which he hath made, that if ye entered in by the way ye should receive.19 And now, my beloved brethren, after ye have gotten into this strait and narrow path, I would ask if all is done? Behold, I say unto you, Nay; for ye have not come thus far save it were by the word of Christ with unshaken faith in him, relying wholly upon the merits of him who is mighty to save.20 Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life.

We look at the facts of this and just how much the phrase has increased in use.Since October 1992:First use of 'Covenant Path' - Sister Elaine S Dalton Apr 2007Before President Russell M Nelson Call (2007-2017) - 27 uses (18 talks)After President Russell M Nelson Call (2018-2019) - 83 uses (47 talks)Apr 2019 alone - 19 uses (11 talks)Oct 2019 alone - 28 uses (14 talks)

We consider how the use and teachings about Gentiles in this sacred book indicate its authenticity and truth.Interpreter Foundation: https://castbox.fm/vb/188001455

We discuss both the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit and how these two complete the whole armour that Paul taught us about in Ephesians.Willard Richards: May they arise in power and walk forth in the strength of Israel's God to the faithful performance of their duties; and, qualifying themselves for the work of God, putting on the armor of righteousness, may they be prepared to fight the good fight of faith and wield the sword of the Spirit, to the convincing of multitudes who shall become partakers in this holy ministry, and be ready to go forth in their time and season, and labor in the vineyard.

We consider the shield of faith and how the scriptures describe it as the most important part of our defence against the fiery darts of the wicked.Ulisses Soares: This knowledge acquired through the Holy Ghost is nothing more than our testimony, which propels our faith and determination to follow the teachings of the restored gospel in these latter days, regardless of the popular messages we hear from the world. Our testimony must be our shield to protect us against the fiery darts of the adversary in his attempts to attack us. It will guide us safely through the darkness and confusion that exist in the world today.

We look at having our feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace and how this refers to our journey in mortality.Howard W Hunter: Do not say or do or be that which would limit your service or render you ineffective in the kingdom of God. Be ready when your call comes, for surely it will come. Keep your gospel shoes on, or as Paul wrote to the Ephesians, “Stand therefore, having … your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace.” The Lord would say to you tonight what the angel said long ago to Simon Peter: “Arise. … Bind on thy sandals. … Follow me.”

We consider why this part of the armour is vital and what it protects.Cheryl C Lant: Through this I have learned that “as [a man] thinketh in his heart, so is he”. As I ponder the scriptures, something happens to me. I have a stronger desire to live close to my Heavenly Father. I long to serve Him. I want to live the principles that I learn in the scriptures, and as I do, my heart “writeth them for the learning and the profit of my children.”

We contemplate the impact and the exciting news about the April 2020 General Conference. Russell M Nelson: #GeneralConference in April will commemorate the bicentennial of the First Vision. It will be different from any previous conference. Until then, I hope all will prepare for a unique conference that will commemorate the very foundations of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.

We consider when loins should be girt with truth and the blessings that come with virtue.Harold B Lee: It is fruitless for us to try to enjoin youth to be chaste by merely doing as the military have sought to teach, merely because of a fear of a loathsome disease if he is unchaste, or as some of our schools would teach, merely because of the harm that would thus come to society as a result of his unchastity.Paul, the Apostle, taught that we must be girded with a girdle of truth. What truth shall we be girded with? Our loins must be girded with the truth that every handsome young man and every beautiful young girl is winged for a heavenly flight.

We consider how these important partners work together to keep the body of the family alive.William J Critchlow Jnr: Did women by their own free choice choose to be the family heart rather than the family head? Scripturally "the husband is the head of the wife" and he is the family priest and spokesman. Did God, however, in his infinite wisdom purposely make mother the family heart, blessing her with subtle power to sway the head?"There is a center in every homeFrom which all joys must start.Where is that center?It is in the mother's heart."God, choosing woman to be his partner in the creative process, tucked away somewhere in her bosom a spark of his divine love, which later, at the time of motherhood, glows to brilliancy in every mother's heart.
