” What a great and powerful friend is this gift of the Holy Ghost! Certainly all who will turn to the Savior and abide by His laws will be healed by this Spirit (3 Nephi 9:13). They will have the mind of Christ (1 Cor.2:16), they will be partakers of the divine nature (2 Pet. 1:4), they will begin to have the image of Christ in their countenances (Al. 5:14). Truly the gospel comes…not only in word, but also in power (1 Thess. 1:5), the sanctifying, cleansing, soul-enlarging power of the Holy Spirit. ” Elder Loren C. Dunn, Ensign, May 1979.
Seeking the Spirit of God, Elder Douglas L. Callister, General Conference, October 2000
As we become more conversant with the Holy Spirit, our lives become refined. The sordid and base have no attraction.
