The scriptures: As if the Savior were right there beside us

John says "Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me." (John 5:39)

When we search the scriptures, the holy spirit testifies of the truth of the Savior.  We read in Moroni: "And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.

And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things." (Moroni 10:4-5)

When the spirit testifies of the truth of what we read, it is as if the Savior of the world were right there beside us.  Through the spirit, we come to know him, and to know of his reality.  

I pray that all of us might search the scriptures diligently, as King Benjamin instructed, and come to know the Savior as the spirit testifies to us of his reality and divinity.  

And may that inspiration guide our lives.
