I ended up getting ready super early this morning so I had some extra time for personal study, LOVE it when this happens.:)
2 Nephi 28:30 is one of this scriptures it asked me to look up. I love the blessing it has in this scripture, we will learn wisdom as we study.
Then, in Doctrine and Covenants 130:18 it says,"Whatever principle of intelligence we attain unto in this life, it will rise with us in the resurrection."
I had myself an "Ah-Ha" moment this morning. After I read about knowledge, I was studying about the gospel of Jesus Christ and reading up on baptism. I read about the reasons we are baptized. One, said "we are baptized for a remission of our sins." After reading that a scripture came to my mind, 2 Nephi 25:26. "And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children my know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins."
Ding, a light bulb shined so bright as this scripture came to mind. It makes sense to me now.
You would think that I would already know this but, this is why we must continue to study the gospel. We forget things, and also some things start to make sense to us.
I know that I will continue to learn about the gospel for the rest of my life. I know that the Lord will continue to bless me with more "Ah-Ha" moments as long as I show Him that I am willing to learn and study His words, and do the things which He has asked of me.
I invite all of you to open your minds and to be willing to learn. Whether its about the gospel or regular school subjects. I know that it is important to the Lord for us to learn and to grow.
Remember who you are and what you stand for!
