#BOMSummer DAY 24, Jarom-Words of Mormon: “This Book Can Help”

#BOMSummer Day 24, Russell M. Nelson, A Testimony of the Book of Mormon, Ensign, Nov. 1999

Jarom-Words of Mormon

Elder Russell M. Nelson:

Each individual who prayerfully studies the Book of Mormon can also receive a testimony of its divinity. In addition, this book can help with personal problems in a very real way. Do you want to get rid of a bad habit? Do you want to improve relationships in your family? Do you want to increase your spiritual capacity? Read the Book of Mormon! It will bring you closer to the Lord and His loving power. He who fed a multitude with five loaves and two fishes—He who helped the blind to see and the lame to walk—can also bless you! He has promised that those who live by the precepts of this book “shall receive a crown of eternal life.” (“A Testimony of the Book of Mormon,” Ensign, Nov. 1999)

#BOMSummer DAY 11, 2 Nephi 3-5: “The Best Guide”

#BOMSummer Day 11, Henry B. Eyring, “A Witness,” Ensign, Nov. 2011

2 Nephi 3-5

President Henry B. Eyring:

Every member of the Church has the same sacred charge. We accepted it and promised to rise to it as we were baptized. We learn from the words of Alma, the great Book of Mormon prophet, what we promised God that we would become: “Willing to mourn with those that mourn; yea, and comfort those that stand in need of comfort, and to stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places that ye may be in, even until death, that ye may be redeemed of God, and be numbered with those of the first resurrection, that ye may have eternal life.” (Mosiah 18:9)

That is a lofty charge and a glorious promise from God. My message today is of encouragement. Just as the Book of Mormon makes the charge plain to us, it also directs us upward on the path to eternal life.

First, we promised to become charitable. Second, we promised to become witnesses of God. And third, we promised to endure. The Book of Mormon is the best guide to learn how well we are doing and how to do better.  (“A Witness,” Ensign, Nov. 2011)
