is true about this verse…

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.

“The flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other”

Has not been with Heavenly Father. Naturally desires fleshy things.

Spent time with Heavenly Father. Wants to get back to His presence.

Spiritual Man

I believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; I believe all things, I hope all things, I have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, I seek after these things.

Natural Man

I believe in being dishonest, immoral, and being an enemy to God; I deny all things, I ridicule all things, I have ruined many things, and hope to be able to ruin all things. If there is anything carnal, sensual, devilish, or wicked, I seek after these things.

Natural Woman?

You young ladies have a profound influence on young, masculine behavior. Young men wear clothes they think you like. Their hair will be cut to please you. You can control how fast they drive their cars if you want. They will dress as grubby as you like. Your influence will be as though flowing from the stars to affect the actions of men.

Elder David B. Haight,

“Young Women—Real Guardians,”Ensign, Nov 1977

You are a highway patrol man you come upon a car wreck. Both cars straddling the center line of a deserted highway. It was a head-on collision and everyone involved was killed. To which Kingdom will each go?

The Atonement

Victims: The driver is a returned missionary who got mad at his bishop. He stopped going to church and stopped believing in the church. He was seen recently handing out anti-Mormon literature at a local university. He married a cute young girl who was raised without religion. He was very impressive to her at first but in recent years he has been very cruel to her. She cries a lot. They married a year after she became pregnant. He is angry and defiant to any religious leader. Says he can't wait to see God so he tell him what a terrible world he created. Sadly, their little baby died in the car seat in the back seat.

“I suspect that you and I are much more familiar with the nature of the redeeming power of the Atonement than we are with the enabling power of the Atonement. Most of us clearly understand that the Atonement is for sinners. I am not so sure, however, that we know and understand that the Atonement is also for saints—for good men and women who are obedient and worthy and conscientious and who are striving to become better and serve more faithfully. ”

David A. Bednar, In the Strength of the Lord, BYU Devotional, October 2001

  • A young man is sitting in front of the computer, he has not seen or clicked on anything inappropriate, but the thought comes in his head…
  • A young woman feels inadequate and not worth much and has a thought to do something damaging to herself…
  • A young man/woman is with somebody they like. They have not done anything they shouldn’t yet, but have the temptation to take a next step…

“[Do] we mistakenly believe we must make the journey from good to better and become a saint all by ourselves through sheer grit, willpower, and discipline?

“Sometimes I wonder if in our latter-day world of ease—in our world of microwave ovens and cell phones and air-conditioned cars and comfortable homes—I wonder if we ever learn to acknowledge our daily dependence upon the enabling power of the Atonement.”

Starve and torture the Natural Man!

  • It’s late at night. You haven’t read your scriptures yet. What do you do?
  • Its Fast Sunday … and you pour a bowl of cereal… and then… you remember….it’s Fast Sunday.
  • Friends are gossiping – and you know some dirt…
  • It’s Mutual Night and you don’t want to go…

Mosiah 3:19

What can you do today to more fully “yield to the enticings of the Holy Spirit”?

mosiah 3 192
Mosiah 3:19

Suppose you have a midterm test coming up in geometry in two weeks. One of your goals is to get an A in geometry. How do you go about reaching that goal? Do you wait until the last minute and cram the night before the test?

mosiah 3 193
Mosiah 3:19

Now let’s take another student who realizes that he doesn’t want to count on the intangibles of luck and hope. So, instead of cramming, he sets aside a little time every day to calmly study the subject. What’s the result from this second technique?

mosiah 3 194
Mosiah 3:19

Is it possible to go into a classroom knowing beforehand that you will get an ‘A’ because of your preparation?

If you want to get an ‘A’ in your celestial goals, the same daily technique needs to be applied. Young friends, it is very difficult to cram for a mission or for a temple marriage. Prepare yourselves daily.

mosiah 3 195
Mosiah 3:19

How can you protect yourself against the pressures and evils of the world? Three hours of church on Sunday? Not likely. If you stay close to Him on a daily basis, He will stay close to you.

“When the day comes to enter the classroom door of the temple, you will be at peace and your self-confidence high and you will know in your heart that you will receive an ‘A’ in the most important of all your subjects: your celestial future. (A Celestial Connection to Your Teenage Years, Elder Richard J. Maynes, New Era, November 1997)
