Church Services This Week at Sullivan Hollow Second Ward Weber Heights Stake Ogden Utah 15 Sep 2013

Ward CouncilThe spiritual thought was taken from the book, The Gift to Teach by Boyd K Packer
1 Corinthians 12:11
11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.
Elders QuorumChapter 18 - Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Lorenzo Snow
“If a presiding elder will only seek to become as he may be and ought to be, ridding himself of selfish principles, and always act for the good of his people, and be humble, and not seek to do too much in a little time, or be too great until grown, he will never be at a loss how to magnify his office properly, nor will ever lack the power of God to bring about His wise purposes.” (Letter from Lorenzo Snow to William Lewzey and William Major, Nov. 1842, in Lorenzo Snow, Letterbook, 1839–1846, Church History Library.)
Those who raise themselves up, the Lord brings them low.  Those who humble themselves the Lord lifts.
Sunday SchoolLesson 35 - Our Heritage 77-80
After the people had been physically saved, they could continue to save those people spiritually.
How far do we have to go today to find people that need rescued?  Next door or maybe a couple of doors down?  There are likely people in our own home that need rescued.
Matthew 11:28-30
28 ¶Come unto me, all
ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke
is easy, and my burden is light.
Sacrament ServiceJohn 16:13
13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear,
that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

If we allow ourselves to be distracted by things or people from our duty and who we are then we will not have joy.
1 Corinthians 3:16-17
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and
that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which
temple ye are.

Alma 42:6-8
6 But behold, it was appointed unto man to die—therefore, as they were cut off from the tree of life they should be cut off from the face of the earth—and man became lost forever, yea, they becamefallen man.
7 And now, ye see by this that our first parents were cut off both temporally and spiritually from the presence of the Lord; and thus we see they became subjects to follow after their own will.
8 Now behold, it was not expedient that man should be reclaimed from this temporal death, for that would destroy the great plan of happiness.
