We now come to the last few verses of the Book of Mormon, where Moroni urges us to come unto Christ. How can we do this in the fullest sense?
Mormon ends his talk by discussing the three pillars of Christlike becoming–faith in Jesus Christ, hope, and charity. How can we become more faithful, hopeful, and charitable?
Moroni outlines baptism and our responsibilities afterward. He says that Christ is the author and finisher of our faith. What does that mean exactly?
In this chapter, Moroni sets forth the ordinance of the sacramental water, that represents the blood of Christ. How can we remember our Savior better by preparing for this ordinance better?
Moroni gives us the sacramental prayers–the bread in this chapter. Do we understand and use this precious covenant with God to draw closer to Him, through His Son Jesus Christ? How could we do better?
Moroni outlines how ordained elders who hold the priesthood of God can ordain others to be priests and teachers in Christ’s Church. The Holy Ghost is vital to these priesthood ordinances.
Moroni writes down words that Christ gave His apostles during the time He visited the Nephites right after His Resurrection. These words should motivate us not to take the gift of the Holy Ghost for granted in our lives.
Many more generations of Jaredite history are outlined in this chapter. The thing that stood out to me was what happened when they let God prevail in their lives…and when they didn’t. How can we allow God to prevail in our own lives?
Jared is a wicked king who leads a coup again his own father, gets overthrown in another coup by his brothers years later, and then seeks to keep power in any way possible. We have men/women like him today, who are desperate to keep power, no matter what they have to do to keep it. We must beware power-seekers and work to keep them in check through government checks and balances.
We learn more about exercising faith muscles in this chapter. If we can grow stronger spiritually, there are great blessings in store for us. Read more to learn what some of these are.
