Collegiate Week. The second one is about consecrating ourselves spiritually, holding back nothing. The Lord had earlier said that a servant does not know what his lord does. Is it possible that the closer we come to Christ, the more aware we will be of what we yet need to do? Like a good coach, a good tutor will always help his students see their mistakes and correct them.
When we understand that, correction is motivating, not discouraging. For because of the Atonement, we can learn from our mistakes without being condemned by them. The paradox of this divine tutorial also includes afflictions of some kind. Because ever since Okinawa he had wanted to become a fully consecrated follower of Jesus—no matter what the price. And the more he desired the gift of charity—to love as Christ loves—the more he sensed how dear the price might be.
Only in that way could He both pay for our sins and empathize with us enough to truly succor us—that is, run to us—with so much empathy that we can have complete confidence that He fully understands our sorrows. So, to love as Christ loves means we will somehow taste suffering ourselves—for the love and the affliction are but two sides of the same coin. Finally, sanctification is the stage when we are not only with God but like God—for only those who have become like Him can be with Him. Being like Him means we possess His divine attributes, such as charity.
Do we develop charity by our own power or is it a gift from God? It is both. Then we will receive all that the Father hath and be all that the Father is. I talked earlier about our daughter. He is with me, with you, not only at the end of our lives but every day of our lives. Once our daughter Emily had to leave her three-year-old boy Clark with a babysitter. With you. Still, still with Thee. Still—always; and still—quiet. My heart has no greater desire. On that day of celestial reunion we will fully comprehend what it means to be there, together—something we would never understand without that long, hard journey in the earth school.
And now in my old age, she has again become the girl of my dreams. He is again with his Marjorie; with his gifted mother, Ada, who died when he was 20; and with his father, Bryant, who wrote that life-changing letter about going to work. I testify that Gordon B. Hinckley will always be with the girl of his dreams, for I know that Jesus is the Christ, the great Uniter, the Atoning One. Because of what He did, we too can be with Him; with our dearest ones—still, always, to go no more out.
I am so grateful for this heavenly gift. Still, still with Thee, when purple morning breaketh, When the bird waketh and the shadows flee; Fairer than morning, lovelier than the daylight, Dawns the sweet consciousness, I am with Thee!

Abraham But that is hard to do today, because modern culture is saturated with double-mindedness and indulgence in unclean things. I heard President Hinckley once say that prosperity leads to indulgence, and indulgence leads to sin. Indulgence means gratifying our vain desires in the proud belief that we deserve to have it all. So we keep one hand on the wall of the temple and one foot on the dance floor at Club Babylon.
We live in a society that seems to have no higher aim than its own indulgent satisfactions. Many feel they have a right to indulge themselves: eating too much, spending too much, and reveling in creature comforts. Pornography addictions can destroy marriages, shattering the true romantic dream of eternal love.
Fake love can destroy real love. What a cheap and dirty trick! And worse, yielding to porn is a classic example of touching the unclean thing, of refusing to deny oneself of ungodliness. This double-mindedness has consequences: we cannot then be perfected in Christ—not because He lacks the power but because we lack the discipline.
Thank heaven, repentance can restore discipline. As we approach the second barrier of sacrifice, we move symbolically from the moon to the sun. Heber C.
JOURNEY OF FAITH CHRISTIAN CHURCH
Baptism represents the first sacrifice. The temple endowment represents the second sacrifice. The first sacrifice was mostly about giving up temporal things. The second one is about consecrating ourselves spiritually, holding back nothing.
