COME...the word that I keep running into lately.
Jesus CAME to save us, and He is COMING again to wrap us in His arms and prepare the world to meet God, the Father.
During His ministry, Jesus said, "Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
When He visited America after He was resurrected, He said, "Arise and come forth unto me...that ye may know that I am the God of Israel, and the God of the whole earth."
It is time for all of us to truly COME to Jesus
How do we COME?
President Nelson says, "Hear Him."
President Eyring says, "The way to come unto Him is to feast upon His words, and to exercise faith unto repentance."
The Prophet Alma said, "Come and fear not, and lay aside every sin, which easily doth beset you, which doth bind you down to destruction, yea come and go forth, and show unto your God that ye are willing to repent of your sins and enter into a covenant with him to keep his commandments, and witness it unto him this day by going into the waters of baptism."
When the Savior says, "COME," He is begging us to cleanse our hearts, our minds, and our lives of all darkness and illuminate our lives with His light.
He is urging us to turn our lives over to Him and surrender our will to His will.
He is pleading with us to run from the danger of the Devil and run into His arms of safety and peace.
