Day 88: Moroni1-6 Moroni had not planned to write more, but decides to because he had “not as yet perished” (ch1v1). He gives us some very valuable teachings in his 10 chapters. I especially like ch6, as he writes about the importance of baptism into the Lord’s church and what we should do at church. V4-6 “And after they had been received unto baptism, and were wrought upon and cleansed by the power of the Holy Ghost, they were numbered among the people of the church of Christ; and their names were taken, that they might be remembered and nourished by the good word of God, to keep them in the right way, to keep them continually watchful unto prayer, relying alone upon the merits of Christ, who was the author and finisher of their faith. And the church did meet together oft, to fast and to pray, and to speak one with another concerning the welfare of their souls. And they did meet together oft to partake of bread and wine, in remembrance of the Lord Jesus.” I’m incredibly grateful for the experience of going to church and being “remembered and nourished by the good word of God.” The Church is a great blessing in my life, as are the people who “preach… exhort… pray… supplicate… and sing” (v9). The sacrament is also a wonderful blessing to me, as it helps me remember and recommit to my covenants with my Savior.
