3 Nephi : 12
Lately, I've been struggling with readaing my scriptures. I'm not entirely sure why, but lately, instead of just hunkering down and doing it because I know it needs to be done (and then reaping the Spirit due to my obedience), I've just had the hardest time sitting down and actually doing it.
Well.. Today I did. I opened to 3rd Nephi 12, and I've gotta say - what a spiritual feast!
This chapter is so full of introspective verse, it's hard not to see a direct mirrored reflection right out of the chapter as you read.
As I read this, I was reminded inwardly, that God writes words for a purpose. Sometimes, it's easy for me to lose track of that truth when there are so many specific items in a list, such as the "blessed are they who...." beattitudes. God is serious about these attributes, and their respective blessings as well.
Man.. There is so much packed into this chapter, it would take me all day to write out my feelings and notes.
Suffice it to say that this chapter is one worth reading over and over and over.
It's definitely given me a renewed conviction and determination to rid my life of Satan, and his pesky evildoers (as much as possible)
