Ask for a 3 volunteers.? Have the first person blow up a balloon with a tiny bit of air and then pinch the balloon shut with her fingers to hold the air in for a few minutes..? The second volunteer blows it up her balloon about half full and the third volunteer blows up her balloon until completely full.? Explain that the balloons represent our spirits and the air going in them represents faith.? One by one, have each sister unpinch their balloons, allowing them to fly across the room.? The first balloon didn?t have much faith and couldn?t go very far.? The third balloon had a lot of faith/air and could really fly, but without much direction. Talk about how we not only have to be ?filled? with the Holy Ghost, but also ?guided? by the Lord so we?ll go in the right direction.
The first principle of the gospel isn?t faith, but faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.? Faith is believing in Him with our spiritual eyes when we haven?t seen Him with our physical eyes.? It is a principle of action that compels us to pray, be obedient and trust in His promises.? We increase our faith by testing and studying His words.? Faith has power to move mountains, perform miracles, and prove us worthy to see God.
Each time we learn something more about the gospel, we are adding ?air? to our balloon.? Even a little bit of air is still a testimony!? We can be converted one principle at a time.
