Wind At Your Back #14

Mosiah 3:19

Historical Setting

King Benjamin taught his people what an angel had taught him the night before.

Doctrinal Teaching

The natural, or fallen, man is an enemy to God. By yielding to the Spirit and becoming like a child, we can overcome the natural man.

Self-Obliged Application

Show your nonmember friends that without the Holy Spirit we are in a fallen, or natural, state and are not close to God.

Personal Application

Listen to the Spirit and be more submissive, patient, and full of love, even when you may be tempted to argue with or rebel against family members.

19 For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the fall of Adam, and will be, forever and ever, unless he yields to the enticings of the Holy Spirit, and putteth off the natural man and becometh a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord, and becometh as a child, submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father.
