The Lord Bestows the Gift of the Holy Ghost upon Worthy Individuals Who Receive the Ordinances of Baptism and Confirmation

Doctrine and Covenants 33:15

15 And whoso having faith you shall confirm in my church, by the laying on of the hands, and I will bestow the gift of the Holy Ghost upon them.

Elder Bruce R. McConkie said:

“The gift of the Holy Ghost . . . is the right to the constant companionship of this member of the Godhead based on faithfulness. This is the greatest gift possible to receive in mortality. There is nothing any of us need as much as the guiding and preserving care of the Holy Spirit—the Spirit that is given by the prayer of faith to those who love and serve the Lord. I testify that if we love the Lord, keep His commandments, and seek His Spirit, we shall be blessed beyond our fondest hopes.”
