Elders Davis and Harvey presented “We are consecrated servants of Jesus Christ.”  It’s a journey as we use stepping stones.  Me + Christ = More.  Christ is our companion.  He makes us better.  We need to give our choices and agency to Jesus Christ.

Elders Huston and Gemar presented “We serve the Lord through our obedience.”  It is through our obedience we can best serve others.  Elder Gemar told the story of a navy seal who parachuted out of a plane and got caught in a tree.  It was dark and he didn’t know how far he would drop.  The question – What is holding you back?  Cut the cords.  He dropped only 6 feet and was safe.  We need to cut the cords and have faith.  The cords we are cutting are disobedience.  Read Romans 5:19.
