Bishop Gerald Caussé, First Counselor in the Presiding Bishopric, spoke fourth at the Sunday morning session of the 185th Annual General Conference.
He started by talking about how we sometimes take things for granted when they are right in front of us.
“We look, but we don’t really see; we hear, but we don’t really listen,” Bishop Caussé said.
He said for us, many wondrous events occur in our individual lives.
“They include our conversion, the answers we receive to our prayers, and the tender blessings God showers upon us daily,” Bishop Caussé said.
He encouraged us to recognize the hand of the Lord in our lives and in everything we do.
“Never tire of the discovering or rediscovering the truths of the gospel,” Bishop Caussé said.
He said we should hunger and thirst after personal knowledge.
No matter how diligent we are, no matter how much we believe we know, we need to continue to press on and progress.
Bishop Caussé invited members of the church to seek and cherish the Holy Ghost as our constant companion.
“Most wonders of the gospel cannot be perceived by our natural senses,” said Bishop Caussé. “They are the things that the eye hath not seen, nor ear heard . . . the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.”
