The ability to progress and learn is an essential gospel principle. However, this process isn’t always easy. These five LDS quotes about change and repentance can give us hope as we move forward in our lives and how Jesus Christ can ultimately change our hearts and very nature.
“Through Jesus Christ, we are given the strength to make lasting changes. As we humbly turn to Him, He will increase our capacity to change.” – Sister Rebecca L. Craven | Keep the Change
“God is a God of truth, and God does not change. We are the ones who must change.” – President Dallin H. Oaks | Repentance and Change
“We need not feel that we must forever be what we presently are. There is a tendency to think of change as the enemy. Many of us are suspect of change and will often fight and resist it before we have even discovered what the actual effects will be. When change is thought through carefully, it can produce the most rewarding and profound experiences in life.”
“Change is a meaningful part of repentance. Some are unable to repent because they are unwilling to change.” – Elder Marvin J. Ashton | Progress Through Change
“The old saying “Change is progress” then takes on a special meaning for all of us—because repentance is change, conversion is change, perfecting is change. All this is in complete harmony with the desires of our Heavenly Father and the loving pleadings of the Redeemer.” – Elder Jacob de Jager | Change
“Through the Atonement of Christ and by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the gospel, we undergo this ultimate operation, this spiritual change of heart.” – Elder Dale G. Renlund | Preserving the Heart’s Mighty Change
