Turn to the Lord

This week we're going to ponder the great promise that the Lord will deliver us if we will turn to, trust, and serve him.

But if ye will turn to the Lord with full purpose of heart, and put your trust in him, and serve him with all diligence of mind, if ye do this, he will, according to his own will and pleasure, deliver you out of bondage.  (Mosiah 7:33)

Believe in God

This week we're going to ponder Mosiah 4:9:

Believe in God; believe that he is, and that he created all things, both in heaven and in earth; believe that he has all wisdom, and all power, both in heaven and in earth; believe that man doth not comprehend all the things which the Lord can comprehend.

Serve One Another

This season more than ever we need the Savior's example of service. This week we'll be pondering these teachings of the prophet king Benjamin.  These verses remind me why I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God, because they make men and women better friends, spouses, parents, and brothers and sisters, children of God.

   Mosiah 2:17-19

When ye are in the service
of your fellow beings
ye are only in the service
of your God.

If I, whom ye call your king, 
do labor to serve you, 
then ought not ye to labor 
to serve one another?

If I, whom ye call your king, 
who has spent his days in your service, 
and yet has been in the service of God, 
do merit any thanks from you, 
O how you ought to thank 
your heavenly King!

Walk in His Paths

I'm so grateful for covenants that protect us and point us to a loving Savior.  This week we will ponderize Alma 7:9 and the words of Elder Ronald A. Rasband:

Repent ye, and prepare the way of the Lord, and walk in his paths, which are straight.  (Alma 7:9)
As we stay on the covenant path, we need not fear.  (Elder Ronald A. Rasband, October 2018 General Conference)

The Savior knows you and loves you

It's sometimes hard to remember that the Savior loves each of us.  Let us remember what he did to prove his love...

Arise and come forth unto me, that ... ye may feel the prints of the nails in my hands and in my feet, that ye may know that I am the God of Israel, and the God of the whole earth, and have been slain for the sins of the world. --3 Nephi 11:14
