The Rest of the Mission Letter


Sorry, I totally don't know what key combination I hit that accidentally sent that last letter, but I wasn't quite done.

I was saying, this scripture I read this morning, and it rather impacted me; I imagined a prophet or apostle, speaking at General Conference, asking us to do a self-introspection, answering these questions to ourselves. These three verses have excellent questions, which can help us to check our faith and improve even more. So, ask yourselves these questions, and then answer them. 

 14 And now behold, I ask of you, my brethren of the church, have ye spiritually been born of God? Have ye received his image in your countenances? Have ye experienced this mighty change in your hearts?
 15 Do ye exercise faith in the redemption of him who created you? Do you look forward with an eye of faith, and view this mortal body raised in immortality, and this corruption raised in incorruption, to stand before God to be judged according to the deeds which have been done in the mortal body?
 19 I say unto you, can ye look up to God at that day with a pure heart and clean hands? I say unto you, can you look up, having the image of God engraven upon your countenances?

 28 Behold, are ye stripped of pride? I say unto you, if ye are not ye are not prepared to meet God. Behold ye must prepare quickly; for the kingdom of heaven is soon at hand, and such an one hath not eternal life.

Have an awesome week!
