Virtuous living “at all times and in all things, and in all places” qualifies you for the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost. When you are baptized and confirmed, you are given the gift of the Holy Ghost to guide all aspects of your life. Since the Holy Ghost does not dwell in unclean tabernacles, living a virtuous life is a prerequisite to having the companionship of the Holy Ghost and receiving the blessings of temple ordinances. Read the following scripture references and identify the promised blessings: John 14:26–27
; 2 Nephi 32:1–5
; and Doctrine and Covenants 45:57–59
. In your journal record what you have learned, and write about a time when you felt the guidance of the Holy Ghost.
Think back to your baptism, and record the feelings you had after you received the Holy Ghost. How has your understanding of the gift of the Holy Ghost grown since then?
Think of a time you had lost the companionship of the Spirit. What can you change in your life so that you can ALWAYS have the Spirit with you.
Remember that the Holy Ghost is more than just a fuzzy feeling—He is a God. How does that eternal truth change your willingness to be worthy of His companionship?
