My parents and I have begun reading the Book of Mormon every day (well, trying to), and we email the family insights which we pick up in our readings. I've decided to post some of my own, personal insights here, in an effort to get back to the Svithe cycle thinger. Some days reading provides a lot more inspiration than other days, so I hope you'll forgive me if some of my posts seem lame or not very well thought out. For more information on the Book of Mormon or The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons), please visit Mormon.org or scriptures.lds.org (both are hyper-linked, so feel free to click away).
I was reading in 2 Nephi chapter 31. I guess these verses stuck out to me because of my lesson on Sunday (this was a few weeks ago. My lesson was about perseverance, and I may or may not get it typed up and blogged. Had to plan it on the plane back from Florida, but I think it turned out really well). It starts in verse 19 "And now, my beloved brethren, after ye have gotten into this strait and narrow path, I would ask if all is done? Behold, I say unto you, Nay;... Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life."
Then in chapter 32 I read that after we receive the Holy Ghost, we can speak with the tongue of angels (verse 2). In verse 3 it says "Angels speak by the power of the Holy Ghost; wherefore, they speak the words of Christ. Wherefore, I said unto you, feast upon the words of Christ;..." So does that mean that when we talk about the Book of Mormon, we are speaking in the tongue of angels? Just something to think about.
