Johnston devotional: assistance required, we can't make it on our own

Ryan Anderson | University Relations | 14 October 2008

Part of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is helping those around us who are in need, and we must help them to obtain our own salvation, taught Judge Robert Johnston, U.S. Magistrate Judge for the District of Nevada, during his devotional address at BYU-Hawaii on October 14. His thoughts were centered on the idea that students should “reach out that we perish not.”

Judge Johnston used the words of King Benjamin to teach about spiritual death: “But this much I can tell you, that if ye do not watch yourselves, and your thoughts, and your words and your deeds, and observe the commandments of God, and continue in the faith of what ye have heard concerning the coming of our Lord, even unto the end of your lives, ye must perish. And now, O man, remember, and perish not.

Dr. Hiagi WesleyHonesty, education, truth, and missionary work were a just a few of the topics addressed by BYU-Hawaii education professor Dr. Hiagi Wesley during his devotional address October 7. He told the students by putting God and the Church first in their lives they would “be following a more excellent way.”

Dr. Wesley, a convert to the LDS Church originally from Rotuma, opened his address by encouraging the students to follow a more excellent way, and he said, “To ensure that we can be partakers of that gift, the Savior declared: Come, follow me!  To truly acquire a more excellent way, we must be willing to follow line upon line, precept upon precept and live by every word which proceedeth forth from the mouth of God.”
