Abiding Precepts – 2 Nephi 24

Read the full chapter here: 2 Nephi 24

Passage #1

For the Lord will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land; and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob.

2 Nephi 24:1

Precept #1

Cleave to the house of Jacob.

Have you made the covenants which Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob made with the Lord (i.e. baptism and temple covenants)? How diligently do you keep those covenants? Are you working to find and build up the house of Israel on this side of the veil?

Passage #2

And the people shall take them and bring them to their place; yea, from far unto the ends of the earth; and they shall return to their lands of promise. And the house of Israel shall possess them, and the land of the Lord shall be for servants and handmaids . . .

2 Nephi 24:2

Precept #2

Seek for your own personal land of promise.

Do you know what the Lord has in store for you? Do you know the blessings He wants to give you? Are you seeking for them and living in a way so as to qualify for them?

Passage #3

The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet . . .

2 Nephi 24:7

Precept #3

Make time to rest and be quiet.

How often do you pause to be still?

Passage #4

They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and shall consider thee, and shall say: Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms?

2 Nephi 24:16

Precept #4

Do not give consideration to Satan, his temptations, or his works.

Do you trust that God is more powerful and more glorious than Satan is?

  1. Passage/precept #1 Uncle Paul and I spole about Priesthood power for men and women this last Sunday in Sacrament Meeting. Then both the Elders Quorum and the Relief Society meetings were focused on Elder Rasband’s talk from last October’s conference where he speaks of keeping promises and covenants with integrity. One thing that really stood out to me about priesthood power is that we have access to it through simply keeping our covenants. The more faithfully and intentionally we keep them, the more access to God’s power we have. I believe that is because He knows he can trust us with that portion of His power to do His work.
