The Scriptures Guide Us
God’s plan centers around Jesus Christ. One of the most important ways we can learn about Jesus Christ is to study the scriptures that testify of Him. Scriptures are made up of the writings of holy prophets. God spoke to these prophets, and they wrote down His words for us to read. The scriptures include the Holy Bible, which details the earth’s creation, the lives and lessons of the Old Testament prophets, and most importantly, an account of Jesus Christ’s life—His teachings, His miracles, His death, and His Resurrection. The scriptures also include The Book of Mormon—a collection of writings from ancient Christians who traveled from Jerusalem to the Americas during biblical times. It isn’t always easy for us to read the scriptures, but as we make an effort to do so, God will bless us with insights and inspiration that will help us become better followers of Jesus Christ.
