How is everyone doing on their Book of Mormon reading? Wayne and I have really enjoyed reading the Book of Mormon together. My favorite part of the reading this month were the testimonies of the prophets Lehi, Nephi, Jacob, Enos and Isaiah.
"And now I, Nephi, write more of the words of Isaiah, for my soul delighteth in his words. For I will liken his words unto my people and I will send them forth unto all my children, for he verily saw my Redeemer, even as I have seen him.
And my brother, Jacob, also has seen him as I have seen him; wherefore, I will send their words forth unto my children to prove unto them that my words are true. . . " (2 Nephi 11:3)
Most of us will not have the experience of seeing our Lord and Savior in mortality so we live by faith, keeping the commandments of the Lord and enduring to the end. I am trying to apply the doctrine of Christ in my life so I may see my Redeemer and be worthy to have the experience that Enos describes.
"And I soon go to the place of my rest, which is with my Redeemer; for I know that in him I shall rest. And I rejoice in the day when my mortal shall put on immortality, and shall stand before him; then shall I see his face with pleasure, and he will say unto me; Come unto me, ye blessed, there is a place prepared for you in the mansions of my Father."
Today, March 4th, is the first Sunday in the month and on the schedule we should be reading Jarom. I hope you are all hanging in there with us by reading a chapter of the Book of Mormon every day. April 1st will be the first Sunday in April and we should be reading Mosiah Chapter 26 on that date.
Please post your comments, experiences and how you can apply your reading in March to your life. I love to read your posts.
