Mac ’ s 消息 #34: 向上帝过程职教年轻人如何感觉到精神

Mac 麦金太尔

时候我的股份男青年主席几年前说话在我们的股权会议祭司的职任领导会议. 在我的发言我说最伟大的成就一个男孩可以达到在他年中年轻男子和侦察程序是 : 成为鹰级童子军, 获取 对上帝的责任 证书, 或接收他的使命的召唤. 而是, 我相信一名年轻男子在他的青年时期能达到的最高成就是学会勤奋 完成 他对上帝的责任, 定期和忠实.

我相信是虔诚的祭司持有人是为一位年轻的斯密成员最大的成就. 正如我提到上星期, 对上帝的责任 (动力调谐陀螺仪) 是 过程, 不是程序. 这是一个终身的经验. 它是在一名年轻男子的更重要目的的手段 ’ s 的生活. 动力调谐陀螺仪过程教年轻人如何定期感受到圣灵的精神.

老布鲁斯 R. · 马克康可说: "男人应该 — — 高于一切在这个世界的事情 — — 寻求圣灵的引导. 没什么有圣灵的友谊一样重要. . . . 没有太高的价格, 没有过于繁重的劳动, 不太严重的斗争, 没有太大的牺牲, 如果从这一切我们收到并享受上帝圣灵的礼物" (最新文章的信仰的见证, 253).

哥哥理查德 G. 斯科特接受辅导: "那里是没有简单的公式或立即将使我们能够掌握的能力,以声音的精神为指导的技术. 我们的天父期望我们学会如何通过行使信仰在他和他的圣洁儿子获得那神圣的帮助, 耶稣基督" ("要获得精神指导,” 海军少尉, 11 月. 2009, 6-7).

一名年轻男子可以接收他一生中最大的幸事就是学会如何去感受, 认识到, 和跟随圣灵的提示. 动力调谐陀螺仪过程旨在教年轻人如何"大师指导精神的声音的能力"。它帮助他通过行使对上帝的信仰"学会如何获得神的帮助". 中的活动 Fulfilling My Duty to God 指南帮助一个男孩发展精神属性,成为那种天上的父亲想让他成为祭司的职任持有人. 动力调谐陀螺仪是一名年轻男子获得了精神的力量,在正义的道路上陪伴的规律的祷告和圣经学习习惯培养的过程. 作为一名年轻男子履行他对上帝的责任他管理祭司的职任条例, 为他人服务, 和所有的邀请,来到基督.

侦察和斯密是赖以你的朋友们能感受到,耶和华的灵的完美平台. 一个男孩获得经验与圣灵作为他忠实地履行他祭司的职责"传, 教, 阐述了, 劝, 与施洗, 和管理圣礼, 和每个成员来拜访, 并劝他们祈祷声援和秘密并参加所有家庭职责" (D&C 20:46-47). 他经历的圣洁运作鬼时他 学会 通过对圣经 》 的忠诚研究, 行为 事情,我的生活学到他了, 和他经历的见证 共享 他与其他人的证词. 此外, 圣灵在承担侦察任务或者祭司的职任的活动结束后的反思的时刻悄然触动一个年轻男人的心. 一个小男孩听到精神的低语,他静静地思考他的生活从制高点的山顶或一个隐蔽的营地的重大经验. 它是在安静的一大片, 繁星点点夜晚,一个年轻的男孩经常由神圣的穷途末路移动的。. 仍然很小的声音在寂静的夜晚大声讲话.

弟兄们, 你是在拯救男孩的业务. 最有力的工具,你在你阿森纳对付世界的邪恶影响侦察, 斯密, 和 对上帝的责任 程序. 你可以帮助向路过的不朽与永恒的生命,你的男孩教他们如何去感受和认识到神的灵,因为他跟别人说话. 当你帮助你年轻的男人,学习时,保存男孩, 行为, 和分享他们的经验,耶和华的灵.

花一点时间来反映

  • 你教过你的朋友们感受和认识到精神吗? 你觉得你自己生活中的精神?
  • 你亲自从事 对上帝的责任 过程? 你正在你的小册子吗?
  • 如何是 对上帝的责任 影响你生活的过程? 它在你的生活方面有所作为吗?
  • 你收到的一份个人的证词 对上帝的责任 过程?
  • 你学到了关于 对上帝的责任 程序, 制定行动计划,以帮助孩子们, 并与你年轻的人分享你的经历?
  • 是你的经验,帮助您更好地教你的朋友们感受和认识圣灵的穷途末路?

 

打开你的倒影变成行动

  • 你会开始做什么, 停止做, 或做得更好,因为你的倒影?

 

“现在我们已经收到, 没有精神的世界, 但这是上帝的精神; 我们可能知道恩赐给我们上帝的东西. 这些事我们也讲说, 不是的用人哪个人的智慧所指教的言语, 但用人用圣灵所指教; 比较精神与精神上的东西” (1 哥林多前书 2:12-13).

    Agree with your comments 110%.
    Where scouting is the activity arm of the Aaronic Priesthood, what activities besides high adventures camps and over night camp outs would involve or can be specifically tieing in scouting to Aaronic Priesthood goals?
    Would like any suggestions and responses to my maybe not so clear question.
    thanks

      The Duty to God resource (as President Beck likes to call it) contains the opportunity for young men to engage in three significant activities (项目) while he serves as a Deacon, Teacher and Priest. While a Deacon, he can work onPhysical and Emotional Healthgoals, while a Teacher he can work onEducationgoals and while a Priest, he can work onFamily and Friendsgoals. Boy-led quorums/councils can design week night activities that help satisfy these goals. In my mind, all of these Duty to God goals are Aaronic Priesthood goals, all are scouting goals, all arestrength of youthgoals. The root of each of these significant activities line up with the Aims of Scouting. Each of these activities line up with the way the Savior learned as a youth (路加福音 2:52). In my mind, there is no distinction between a priesthood activity and a scouting activity, when it’s led by priesthood keys, it’s always a priesthood activity, because its ALL about the priesthood. Scouting is a resource to help a young man fulfill his Duty to God.

        great thoughts and I like how you tied everything together, appreciate it.

        Fantastic information in theseREPLIESand in this particular blog post! This is the first time I have heard about theThe Duty to God resource” (as President Beck likes to call it) with three significant activities (项目) while the youth serves as a Deacon, Teacher and Priest. I have not heard of the concept of a young man working on the “Physical and Emotional Health” goals being done while a Deacon, “Educationgoals being done while a Teacher and “Family and Friend” goals being done while a Priest. Very, very interesting information in this littleREPLY”. It would be great to hear more about this. My husband is a second Assistant Scoutmaster in our ward. Even though there are not many Boy Scout level/Deacon aged young men (只有 4 马上) in our ward he has been called so that there is more likelihood of a second adult being available at all activities. He has been called in addition to the 11 year old scout leader (we have no 11 year old boys right now), the Scoutmaster and the Deacon’s Quorum Advisor/2nd Counselor in the YM Presidency. My husband attends Deacon’s Quorum each Sunday and, 事实上, helped with a lesson presenting “对上帝的责任” to the Deacons last Sunday. When my husband was a youth he earned his Duty to God Award; 但, now the requirements are quite different. The philosophy has always been that Scouting and Duty to God are done in tandem; 但, in practice, the two have not always been a seamless match. Where can I search for more? Is there a talk or reference explaining about this? Great information! 谢谢!

          As I listened to David L. Beck during the April 2010 大会, a thought came into my mind that what I knew aspriesthood meetings” (opening exercises, quorum meetings, 仲裁主席会议, 经验教训, 服务项目, 童军活动, 等。) are supposed to be carried out differently than they are currently being carried out. This thought came to me as President Beck said, “During the past year I have been on a journey that has forever changed the way I view you and the Aaronic Priesthood.

          I caught a little bit of the vision of what it means to me to fulfill my own Duty to God and how to help my own sons and other young men fulfill their Duty to God by listening to and re-reading all the conference talks centered around Duty to God:

          Henry B. 艾林 “Act in All Diligence
          – 罗伯特 D. 黑尔斯 “我们对上帝的责任: The Mission of Parents and Leaders to the Rising Generation
          – 大卫 L. 贝克 “The Magnificent Aaronic Priesthood
          Keith B. McMullinOur Path to Duty

          The full online resource can of course be found here: https://www.lds.org/young-men/duty-to-god?lang=eng

          When trying to wrap my head around the “如何” of this process, I’m encouraged by phrases in the pamphlet such asHeavenly Father has great trust and confidence in you”, “Focus on what you are becoming”, “学习, 法案, 分享”, 和 “conversations along the way.

          If we are constantly opening and using the handbook in all of our quorum activities, acting on what we learn and sharing what we feel, we will start to see the patterns and the path to fulfill our Duty to God.

      I think my blog messages #30 和 #31 provide a partial answer to your question.

    3. Mac 说:

      Deb,

      When I first obtained a vision of Scouting in the Church I put together a PowerPoint presentation to teach bishoprics what I had learned. On eight of the slides in the presentation I showed how Scouting provides the “手段” to achieve the “结束’ of the Eight Purposes of the Aaronic Priesthood. Listed below is a sample of two of those slides:

      End:
      Become converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ and live its teachings.

      Means:
      Leadership positions in Priesthood and Scouting
      Opportunities to receive personal revelation and feel the Spirit
      Duty to God requirements regarding personal prayer, personal scripture study
      Camping experiences that test and try them so they have to call upon God
      Pray at meetings, 活动, 天长, 等.
      Spiritual Scoutmaster Minutes and “teaching moments” at every meeting and reflection after activities/camps
      Spiritual experiences in church, Scout meetings, 活动, 服务, 天长
      Sing the hymns of Zion
      Learn reverence and respect for temple, chapel, and sacred things at Scouting activities
      Scouting service projects

      End:
      Prepare to serve an honorable full-time mission

      Means:
      Many leadership opportunities in priesthood and Scouting
      Conduct quorum and Scout meetings
      Conduct quorum presidency meetings
      Speaking and teaching opportunities in priesthood and scouting
      徒步旅行, 骑自行车, Cooking and other merit badges
      Physical fitness requirements in Scouting and Duty to God
      Correctly wear Scout uniform to prepare for wearing another uniform at age 18
      Proper church attire for sacrament
      Confidence through achieving rank advancement
      Live and work together withcompanionsin Scouting activities
      Learn to get along with others at activities and campouts
      Away from home for extended time at Scout summer camp
      Learn to work hard through service, 天长, 徒步旅行,
      working on merit badges

      Hopefully this information, and the other comments made, will give you a better understanding of the power of Scouting helps accomplishes the purposes of the Aaronic Priesthood.

    My son does the duty to God program because we, 他的父母, work on it with him at home but I almost never hear about it in the YMs program in our ward nor have I ever seen them do anything with the YM on this. I have not heard of any YM in our ward completing this program since it was initiated. We are lucky if the YM presidency is even in the ward on Sundays to supervise the quorum. Many Sundays find the bishopric scrambling to figure out what to do with the YM because the YMs presidency is not there. One counselor was MIA for months and then suddenly showed up at a scout meeting. He hardly said a word and then went back to being MIA. Another one moved and they never filled the calling. The YMs President rarely attends anything other than the joint activity once a month and works many Sundays. No one seems to care including many of the parents of these boys. Very sad.

    1. Mac 麦金太尔 说:

      哇! How very sad that members of the Church are so casual in their faithfulness and obedience. Satan seems to be easily winning the battle over the youth of Zion. Even in my own ward we have parents who are active in the Church who cannot be bothered to bring their children to Mutual or to YM/YW activities; not even when we are taking the youth to the temple to do baptisms. 因为某些原因, these parents cannot see the long-term impact their short-sighted choices will make on the lives of their children. I so wish people could gain an eternal perspective from which to govern their lives. “In this there is safety. In this there is peace.
