Book of Mormon: Day 357: Come Unto Christ

Today’s Reading:  Moroni 10:18-34

32 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.

What a blessing it is for me to be able to share a few thoughts with you on this beautiful Christmas morning; this day that we turn our thoughts and our hearts to the babe in the manger and feel of His love for us.  I don’t have many words to say this day because Moroni has said everything for me.  I encourage you to take some time this Sabbath day to ponder on the words that Moroni shares with us in this block of scriptures.

Come unto Christ.

Be perfected in Him.

Deny yourselves of all ungodliness.

Love God with all your might , mind and strength.

And that is all found in just one verse!  It’s good stuff, I tell ya.  Good stuff.

I will leave you to finding the lessons that the Lord needs you to learn as you study the scriptures this day.  As I close this post, I will follow the example of the prophet Moroni in sharing my testimony with you.

I know that our Savior Jesus Christ lives.

I know that as we commit ourselves to Him, He will pour out His blessings upon us.

I know that it is only through faith in the Savior that we will be able to do all of the things that He needs us to do.

I know that ultimately, the relationship that matters most for each of us, is the relationship we develop with our Savior.

Come Unto Christ this day and always.

I leave these thoughts with you in the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ.  Amen.

I grew up the oldest of 5 children in the blazing heat of Southern Utah. After high school and some college experience I met and married Mark Ogden and we are the parents of four children. I have owned and operated my own home-based preschool for more than a dozen years, and I consider myself an accidental author as well. When I am not in my minivan transporting children from one activity to the next, I enjoy playing the piano, blogging, speaking about my life’s experiences, and feeding my insatiable crafting disease.
