FHE-Receive the Holy Ghost

Receive the Holy Ghost

Supplies: Picture of a Dove or stuffed animal dove

When Jesus Christ lived on the Earth he followed all of Heavenly Father’s commandments and was perfect in all he did. He was an example that all of us can follow.

Though he was perfect, and having no sins to be forgiven, he knew he needed to be baptized just like we have been commanded to do. So Jesus sought out a man called John the Baptist and asked him to baptize him in the river Jordan. John agreed, and having baptized Jesus he brought him up out of the water and the heavens opened up,

and the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.” (St. Luke 3:22)

In this scripture, the spirit of the Holy Ghost is symbolized in the form of a dove descending from heaven and given to Jesus Christ. Just as Jesus received the Holy Ghost, we can also receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost when we are confirmed members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints after our baptism. This is a special gift of a companion and a comforter to lead us in our lives when we are worthy.

see St. Luke 3
