You may think this blog is about food. Haha it isn’t. I’m sorry everyone! This feastage is a-whole-nother kind of deliciousness! It’s a feast not to the stomach, but to the heart. ❤ It is called the Book of Mormon.
So now that I have made you all read on because of that dramatic introduction I will talk a little bit about this wonderful book. It has answers. It has peace. It is filled with love. It talks all about Him.
“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 may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins.” –2 Nephi 25:26
This is a little excerpt from the Book of Mormon that shows that this book talks ALL about Christ. Isn’t it scrumptious sounding?
So everyone close your eyes… Ok now open them again because I just realized you can’t read this with them closed, so bear with me and imagine that there is this HUGE Thanksgiving feast in front of you. Turkey, and loads of mash potatoes, not to mention the delicious “secret” recipe of green bean casserole that is on every Campbell’s food can, and stuffing up to your eyeballs!
So are you going to just take a spoonful of cranberry sauce and call it a night? NO!!! Of course not! You are gonna eat until you pants (skirts for sisters) are so uncomfortable that you can’t breathe! So why now when we have THIS book…
would you only take a little bit of it and not a full helping?? This is a literal feast! A spiritual feast!
Jacob 3:2– ” O all ye that are pure in heart, lift up your heads and receive the pleasing word of God, and FEAST upon his love; for ye may, if your minds are firm, forever.”
Alma 32:28– ” Now, we will compare the word unto a seed. Now, if ye give place, that a seed may be planted in your heart, behold, if it be a true seed, or a good seed, if ye do not cast it out by your unbelief, that ye will resist the Spirit of the Lord, behold, it will begin to swell within your breasts; and when you feel these swelling motions, ye will begin to say within yourselves—It must needs be that this is a good seed, or that the word is good, for it beginneth to enlarge my soul; yea, it beginneth to enlighten my understanding, yea, it beginneth to be DELICIOUS to me.”
MMMMMM! DELICIOUS! Are you feeling full yet? Probably not, because this is only a little appetizer of what you can get from the Book of Mormon.
My invitation to EVERYONE this Thanksgiving season, is to (starting now) feast daily on the scriptures! I know that by doing so, you can bypass temptations, and all the hard times you come to face, even the little things, you can be strengthened in those! Not to mention, that every time you read it your own personal testimony of the restoration of the gospel will increase, or if you do not have one, it can be formed. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. It is a another testament of Jesus Christ! It’s true! I’ve asked Heavenly Father multiple times if it’s true, and I find multiple times it is! So go on! And FEAST!!!!!!!
2 Nephi 32:3– “…Wherefore, I said unto you, FEAST upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do.”
