“How do we participate in the Lord’s ‘marvelous work’?” Liahona, October 2020
Come, Follow Me: Book of Mormon
How do we participate in the Lord’s “marvelous work”?
Among the many things the Savior taught the Nephites, He taught them about the gathering of Israel and commanded them to study the scriptures and to keep their own records. How can we follow these teachings today?
Join the Work
Jesus Christ prophesied of a “marvelous work” in the latter days (see 3 Nephi 21:9). That work is the gathering of Israel. President Russell M. Nelson has called this “the most important thing taking place on earth today” and said, “If you choose to, if you want to, you can be a big part of it.”1
How can you and your family learn more about and participate in the gathering of Israel?
Search the Prophets
The Savior commanded the Nephites to “search the prophets” (3 Nephi 23:5). We have the opportunity to hear the living prophet and other Church leaders speak in general conference.
What can you do to get more out of general conference?
How does “searching the prophets” help us in gathering Israel?
Keep a Record
Jesus commanded His Nephite disciples to keep a record of His teachings and the prophecies of Samuel the Lamanite (see 3 Nephi 23:4, 6–13). Similarly, we can record our life experiences to help us and to teach others.
Are there past spiritual experiences you have not recorded?
How can you record the things God is teaching you?
