“Jesus Christ is the Light of the world, a light that is endless, that can never be darkened.”

Part I

What is the Light of Christ? It is a conscience – but it has more of a psychological affect on people. It is the influence of God – that pulls us to do good. As we yield to that influence to go good, then the Light of Christ  increases within us. As we disobey, Light is decreased and can ultimately be diminished.

“That which is of God is light; and he that receiveth light… receiveth more light and that light groweth brighter and brighter until the perfect day.”

-D&C 50:24


Part II

Discerning Light…

Everything that invites and entices us to do good and to be good comes for God.

People may ask, “Well, why not make it easy to recognize all the time?” I would recommend that the simple answer is that God trusts us. He [God] shouldn’t have to dramatically shake us to get our attention.

“The Light of Christ leads us to seek the Holy Ghost and the Spirit of Revelation.”

Those who are baptized members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints receive by the laying on of hands the gift of the Holy Ghost. Now any person in the world can and is influenced by the Holy Ghost, but after baptism by proper authority, one receives this ordinance of the Holy Ghost. That gift, as it operates in our life, as we seek and ask invites inspiration from heaven and revelation.


Part III

Spirit of Revelation…

When the sons and daughters of God communicate with the Lord, it’s called prayer. When the Lord communicates with us, it comes in a variety of methods. Revelation is communication from God to his children here upon the earth. Sometimes those message come quickly and rather dramatically. Like a light coming on in a dark room and you can see the light very quickly. And other times, it is like the horizon – the light comes gradually and little by little, you are able to see more of the picture with the more light that is coming up with the new day. however, the light that comes gradually is more common than rare.
