Although I am touched by many of the Mormon Messages, this one particularly had an effect on me. From Moroni 10:32: “Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you…”
I recently read an article on mercy. There, I was reminded of the loving kindness of our Heavenly Father and the purpose of this life. He sent His only Son, here, to this sometimes miserable existence, to suffer and die, so that each one of us has the opportunity to return to Him.
“And therefore will the Lord wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you.” (Isa. 30:18.) The prophets call our Heavenly Father “the Father of mercies.” (2 Cor. 1:3.)
We know God is all-knowing, and all-powerful. He could do anything, yet He chooses us. In Moses 1: 38-39: “And as one earth shall pass away, and the heavens thereof even so shall another come; and there is no end to my works, neither to my words. For behold, this is my work and my glory—to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.” He uses His power for us, so that we have the opportunity to be like Him.
When we come unto Christ, we partake of this mercy. It is an allowance for us, as imperfect beings, to become pure again. Our association with Him will purify each of us. As the song said, “Let Him in, and you’ll remember who you are. He will mold your life and mend your willing heart.” I hope each of you feel the Spirit of this video as I did. Happy Sunday.
