Elder Kevin W. Pearson said enduring to the end means constantly coming unto Christ and being perfected in Him.
He said “hanging in there” is not a principle of the gospel.
He has six important principles to help us endure to the end.
He said the first principle is to not forget to pray.
“Pray for strength to endure to the end,” he said.
He said the second principle is to come unto Christ and be perfected in Him.
“We can fill our lives with accomplishment and well-doing, but in the end, if we do not enter into sacred covenants to follow Christ and faithfully keep them,” he said, “we will have utterly and completely missed the mark.”
Elder Pearson said the third principle is to press forward with faith.
“Faith is a principle of action and power,” he said. “Consistently following the Savior’s example produces spiritual power and capacity.”
Elder Pearson said the fourth principle is the Book of Mormon is key to spiritual survival.
He said the fifth principle is don’t be distracted and deceived.
“Searching #spaciousbuilding for knowledge, will not lead you to truth,” Elder Pearson said. “It’s not posted there. Only the Savior has ‘the words of eternal life.’ Everything else is just words.”
He said the sixth principle is to stay by the tree.
“If you are struggling, confused, or spiritually lost, I urge you to do the one thing I know will get you back on track,” he said. “Begin again, to prayerfully study the Book of Mormon and live its teachings, every day, every day, every day!”
