President Russell M. Nelson posted a video on Facebook from his talk on Sunday morning about receiving personal revelation.

President Russell M. Nelson and the two newly called apostles, Elder Gerrit W. Gong and Elder Ulisses Soares, were among speakers from the 188th Annual General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints whose Facebook pages shared thoughts about talks and announcements made during the conference.

The Facebook account of President Nelson posted a video from his Sunday morning address about seeking personal revelation. In his talk, President Nelson shared the example of Joseph Smith and encouraged members to plead with their Father in Heaven for guidance and direction. Most importantly, he said, listen to and record the impressions that come.

Revelation for Our Lives

My dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to increase your spiritual capacity to receive revelation. Let this Easter Sunday be a defining moment in your life. Choose to do the spiritual work required to enjoy the gift of the Holy Ghost and hear the voice of the Spirit more frequently and more clearly.
