Are we inviting the Savior into our lives?

Do we invite the Savior into our homes, into our thoughts, and into our lives? Do we turn off the distractions and invite the spirit in? Do we turn off tv, music, internet sites, and other media with questionable content, and spend time serving others, studying about the Savior, and inviting the spirit of the Lord into our homes? Do we find rest in the Savior?

The Savior yearns for us to do so, and pleads for us to. As Elder Talmage said, "His invitation is one of the grandest outpourings of spiritual emotion known to man: "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." (Jesus the Christ, Quoting Matthew 11:28-30 ).

May we all invite the Savior into our lives through our thoughts, prayers, and most of all, actions.  He has promised us his spirit, and as we invite that in, we will be lifted, strengthened, comforted, encouraged, and helped in all we do.
