That the Holy Ghost May Have Place in Their Hearts – Moroni 7:31-32

31 And the office of their ministry is to call men unto repentance, and to fulfil and to do the work of the covenants of the Father, which he hath made unto the children of men, to prepare the way among the children of men, by declaring the word of Christ unto the chosen vessels of the Lord, that they may bear testimony of him.
32 And by so doing, the Lord God prepareth the way that the residue of men may have faith in Christ, that the Holy Ghost may have place in their hearts, according to the power thereof; and after this manner bringeth to pass the Father, the covenants which he hath made unto the children of men.

The pattern Mormon shares in these verses is simple: Angels reveal the truth to people who have been chosen as witnesses of God. Those people testify of the truths they have learned, which enables their listeners to exercise faith. That faith opens their hearts and unlocks the power of the Holy Ghost in their lives. 
We know that faith comes by hearing the word of the Lord. (See Romans 10:17) We also know that we must act in order for the Holy Ghost to be operative in our lives. Today, I will exercise faith in the principles of the gospel I have been taught, so that I can invite the power of the Holy Ghost into my life.
