So last night I read 2 Nephi 31:20. It said, “Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and love of God and all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father, Ye shall have eternal life. “
Wow! That’s all we need. For real. If you want a road map for your life, here it is. Follow Christ. Have hope. It doesn’t say have perfect knowledge, it says have perfect hope. That’s much easier!
When Christ was asked what the most important commandment was in Matthew 22 he said, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all they heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind…. and the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy
Then, press forward. I heard someone say once that our gospel journey is like climbing UP a DOWN escalator. If we aren’t moving forward we are moving away from our goal. If we think we are only standing still, we are wrong. And how do we keep moving forward? FEAST ON THE WORD OF CHRIST! Read the scriptures every day! Apply them to your life every day. Then you’ll make it home! And if you say, “Well it’s too hard to love my neighbor, or it’s too hard to love myself or God,” then read the Book of Mormon! It will help us with all the other things. It gives us hope. It teaches us to love. It straightens out confusion. It’s the key.
I love the Book of Mormon with all my heart. It will lead us home.
