Testify of the Principle

(5.5.4, Teach by the Spirit)

Always leave time to share your testimony with your class.

Elder Jeffrey R. Holland on bearing testimony:

  • Bear testimony of what the doctrine in the lesson means to you.
  • We can share with every class member “the fire of our faith.”


Alma provides a powerful example of testifying:

“And this is not all. Do ye not suppose that I know of these things myself? Behold, I testify unto you that I do know that these things whereof I have spoken are true. And how do ye suppose that I know of their surety?

“Behold, I say unto you they are made known unto me by the Holy Spirit of God. Behold, I have fasted and prayed many days that I might know these things of myself. And now I do know of myself that they are true; for the Lord God hath made them manifest unto me by his Holy Spirit; and this is the spirit of revelation which is in me” (Alma 5:45–46).
