Which is to show unto the remnant of the house of Israel what great things the Lord hath done for their fathers; and that they may know the covenants of the Lord, that they are not cast off forever—And also to the convincing of the Jew and Gentile that JESUS is the CHRIST, the ETERNAL GOD, manifesting himself unto all nations.
- To remind us how the Lord has blessed the people who have gone before us.
- To teach us about the covenants of the Lord, so that we will understand the steadfastness of God’s love for us.
- To convince us that Jesus is the Christ, and that He is active in the world.
As Mormon points out on the title page, one of the messages of the book is that the Savor is involved in our lives, that he manifests himself to us and is mindful of us. He suffered nearly 2,000 years ago, in order to have the power to save us, but His work of salvation is ongoing. His ministry continues today.
For the remainder of this year, I will focus my study on the Savior. I will learn as much as I can about His attributes and character and will strive to emulate Him more fully. I will also learn what I can do to receive in my life the gifts and blessings He offers to all people through His Atonement.
