This morning, President and Sister Worthen gathered with the student body in the Marriott Center for Fall Semester’s first weekly devotional. President Worthen said:
“My message today focuses on one of the most oft-repeated, and yet most oft-overlooked and ignored commandments. By my count, this commandment is repeated 78 times in the scriptures. The commandment was the first thing spoken by the angels who announced Christ’s birth to the shepherds outside Bethlehem. It was also the first thing spoken by the angels who announced Christ’s resurrection to the women at the empty tomb. The commandment was conveyed by the angels who informed Mary and Joseph about their roles in the Savior’s mortal ministry, and it was part of the message of the angel who appeared to Zacharias to reveal the upcoming birth of John the Baptist. The commandment is repeated in at least two of our LDS Hymns. It is a commandment, found so frequently in the scriptures that we may not recognize its profound importance, especially for the times in which we live and the stage of life in which, you students find yourselves. The commandment is a simple two-word injunction: ‘Fear Not.’”
“Whatever the circumstances you find yourself in, know, with assurance, that you can succeed. You are more capable, more talented, and more faith-filled than you realize. More importantly, you are more loved by God than you realize. God lives. He is our Heavenly Father. He has placed you on earth at this time and in this place because He knows you can succeed, and that you can help others succeed in this particular setting. May the heavens open to give you glimpses of that truth and that destiny.”
