Are you ever tired from the burdens you carry? Sorrows, fears, doubts, sins. Would you like to cast these weights off and receive rest…a spiritual time out. God has promised us rest from our labors and relief from all that weighs us down. We just need to choose Him.
This chapter is packed full of awesome verses that teach about the Fall of Adam and the merciful plan of God to overcome those effects, to help us escape the monster, death and hell. An infinite Atonement was made for us by Jesus Christ, and there is no secret club or formula to partaking of the joy and eternal life He wants to give to ALL of us.
Jacob picks up the record for the next few chapters. He quotes a lot of Isaiah and lays out the future apostasy and restoration of Christ’s kingdom on earth. What stood out to me in this chapter was how God blesses those who wait on Him. What does it mean to truly wait on the Lord?
This chapter has tons of prophesies from Joseph of Egypt that Lehi’s gives to his son, named after him. They are great and powerful and explain a ton about the restoration in the latter-days. Lehi also talks about the message the ancients left for us. What do you think they gave us that would make us most happy?
This chapter delves into the scattering and gathering of Israel and also the eventual return of our Savior, Jesus Christ, to reign on the earth. In that day, Satan will have no power…because men will control their own hearts. How will that happen?
Peace is a sought out commodity in this world. Where do you find it? How do you obtain it? Nephi quotes from Isaiah in this chapter and talks about peace like a river, always flowing, never drying up. God is anxious to give us peace, even in our trials.
Have you ever wondered “Why me?” when bad things happen? How do you go about receiving strength to help you through the messiness of life? This post studies Chap 15 in depth to find the answer to these questions.
