God is our Father, and we are His children (Acts 17:29).
He loves us with a perfect, comprehensive love (1 Nephi 11:17).
And because of that, He desires to interact with us to help us to return to live with Him and become like Him (Matthew 7:7; Matthew 5:48).
Revelation is the word reserved to denote the communication between Father and His children, and it is through this revelation that He helps us to know how to become like Him.
It is important to address that the degree to which we personally receive revelation is completely dependent upon us. God desires to reveal all things unto His children. He continually instructs us to “ask, and ye shall receive; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” (Doctrine and Covenants 4:7).
But, that which is received is congruent with if we ask, how we ask, and what we do with what revelation is given.
“To receive” denotes a permanent change of being or heart. Thus, to “receive revelation” means that we don’t just follow the revelation obtained, but we allow the communication from God to forever change us to become like Him.
Beautiful examples of this process of reception come from the scriptures.
Are we allowing the counsel we receive from heaven to be irrevocably transformative of our very natures?
