“Ye Shall Have My Spirit to Be with You”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet
The Lord’s promise to those who worthily partake of the sacrament is the constant companionship of the Holy Spirit. Having the Spirit in our lives produces myriad spiritual blessings: The Spirit helps us recall and recognize truth (see John 14:26), conveys to us all manner of spiritual gifts (see 1 Corinthians 12:1-11; D&C 46:13-26), guides us in our prayers (D&C 46:30), teaches us eternal truths (Moroni 10:5), brings peace and joy to the soul (Galatians 5:22), opens our minds to revelation (Alma 5:46; 1 Nephi 10:19), shows and tells us all things that we should do (2 Nephi 32:3, 5; D&C 11:12), strengthens the body mind, and spirit (Romans 8:26; D&C 84:33) and many, many other things.
