Engage in the Battle (MP3 Download)
by Ryan Sharp
Drawing on stories and examples from the Book of Mormon, popular speaker and teacher Ryan Sharp guides youth to strategies for battling the influences of the world. He shares specific tactics for today’s stripling warriors: put on the whole armor of God and use the sword of the Spirit—the scriptures—as an offensive weapon; fight like Captain Moroni, with passion and zeal to overpower the enemy; and remember that Satan attacks families, so defend your family—do everything in your power to keep your family strong.
Brother Sharp quotes Elder Ballard, who said, “We battle literally for the souls of men. The enemy is unforgiving and relentless. He’s taking eternal prisoners at an alarming rate and he shows no signs of letting up.” In closing, Brother Sharp promises youth: “As you engage in this battle, you can fight with the passion Moroni fought with in his kind of battle, and you too can come off conquerors as you trust in the Lord.”
