Temples are the central feature of The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-day Saints that points the Saints to Jesus and eternal covenants with Him. I type in my journal of that experience says latter,
"On September 19, 1998, Saturday I went to the Atlanta Temple for the first time to received my own endowments. I at first was nervous about what to expect. I didn't really know all that I would need to do.
Now that I have gone through, I know what I need to know to enter the celestial kingdom to the highest degree--after I have finished all I can in this life.
This experience is one of constant remembrance. I shall not too soon forget my first temple cession. Brother T. Burns escorted me through the temple. I wanted A. Burns or Brother Alderman to do so, but the Spirit with either of these men or Brother Burns would have been the same.
I was happy, almost giddy. The Spirit testified to me that it was true. Though, as the hours pass, Satan tempts me with things, it does not diminish my experience. For the entire time, Satan has no power over me. The blessings of the temple has set me free from his grasp--if I remain true and faithful to my covenants."
That experience was a gift. September 19, 2019 marks 21 years. What better way than to go to the temple to commemorate that sacred experience?
"I would exhort you, my beloved brethren," admonishes Moroni, "that ye remember that every good gift cometh of Christ." [Moroni 10:18] What has Moroni see in you?
