Elder Eduardo Gavarret: ‘A Mighty Change of Heart. “I Have Nothing More To Give You”’


Elder Eduardo Gavarret: ‘A Mighty Change of Heart. “I Have Nothing More To Give You”’

Elder Eduardo Gavarret, a General Authority Seventy, spoke during the Saturday morning session of April 2022 general conference. He challenged listeners to experience “a mighty change of heart” by demonstrating faith and honoring sacred covenants. The following is a summary of what he said.

Notable quotes from Elder Gavarret

“This ‘mighty change of heart’ brings us a feeling of freedom, trust and peace.”

The change begins “when we desire to submit our will to the Lord, and it materializes when we enter into and keep covenants with Him.”

“Today is the day to decide to follow the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Summary of Elder Gavarret’s talk

Experience a “mighty change of heart” by studying the scriptures, strengthening one’s faith in Jesus Christ, praying, fasting and covenanting to “surrendering our hearts to Him.”

Members can know their hearts are changing when they want to please God in all things, treat others with love, assimilate the attributes of Christ, feel the guidance of the Holy Spirit and by keeping the commandments.

Maintain that mighty change by partaking of the sacrament, turning one’s life to the temple and loving and serving neighbors.

“This mighty change of heart brings us a feeling of freedom, trust and peace. This change of heart is not an event; it takes faith, repentance and constant spiritual work to happen. It begins when we desire to submit our will to the Lord, and it materializes when we enter into and keep covenants with Him.”

Following the Savior’s teachings leads to a mighty change of heart.

“As we participate in the conference this weekend, let the words of our prophets, which will come from the Lord, enter our hearts to experience a mighty change. 

“For those who have not yet joined the Lord’s restored Church, I invite you to listen to the missionaries with a sincere desire to know what God expects of you and experience that inner transformation.”
