Yea, come unto Christ,
and be perfected in him,
and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ,
ye can in nowise deny
the power of God.
This week we're thinking about some of Moroni's last words. He obviously put a lot of thought into them--chapter ten is a real treasure. In verse 32, he repeats the invitation that has been given so many times: "Come unto Christ."
Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live . . . Isaiah 55:3
Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
And he said unto the children of men: Follow thou me. 2 Nephi 31:10
We'll be more comfortable with Christ if we are more like Him, but we do not have to be perfect on our own. In fact, we can't be. If we try our best to leave ungodly things behind, and trust in Christ, He will make up the difference and make us perfect through His grace. Really, Moroni said it best. Think about it!
What are you pondering this week?
