Abiding Precepts – 2 Nephi 33

Read the full chapter here: 2 Nephi 33

Passage #1

. . . for when a man speaketh by the power of the Holy Ghost the power of the Holy Ghost carrieth it unto the hearts of the children of men.

2 Nephi 33:1

Precept #1

Speak by the power of the Holy Ghost.

When you teach the gospel does it come from the Spirit of God or from your own head and intellect?

Passage #2

. . . For I pray continually for them by day, and mine eyes water my pillow by night, because of them; and I cry unto my God in faith, and I know that he will hear my cry.

2 Nephi 33:3

Precept #2

Pray for other people – for their spiritual and temporal welfare.

How much of your personal energy (emotional and spiritual) do you use to pray for the welfare of other people?

Passage #3

. . . the words which I have written in weakness will be made strong unto them; for it persuadeth them to do good; it maketh known unto them of their fathers; and it speaketh of Jesus, and persuadeth them to believe in him, and to endure to the end, which is life eternal.

2 Nephi 33:4

Precept #3

Do what Nephi has written we should be doing: Believe in Jesus, do good, and and do those thing until the end of your life.

Are you living the teachings of the Book of Mormon every day? Do you actively think about what good you can do each day and strive to accomplish it?

Passage #4

I glory in plainness; I glory in truth; I glory in my Jesus, for he hath redeemed my soul from hell.

2 Nephi 33:6

Precept #4

Glory in plainness and truth.

Do you rejoice in knowing the truth about yourself? Or do you hide from it? What about the truth about God and His commandments?

Passage #5

And if they are not the words of Christ, judge ye . . .

2 Nephi 33:11

Precept #5

Judge by the power of the Holy Ghost whether the words you read – any words you read – are words sent from God.

Do you know which of all the books you’ve read contain messages from the Lord, Jesus Christ?

    1. You’re welcome Aunt Mary! I can’t tell you how poignantly the precepts of each chapter sink deep into my soul and urge me to repent as well. This is a hard journey for me, but a necessary one. And it is freeing my soul from all kinds of burdens I should have let go of a long long time ago. Each one of these posts speaks me guilty of something, but each one also lifts me up and gives me hope that repentance is possible, change is possible – and most importantly that it is necessary!
      I hope you’re finding joy in the journey! I know Heavenly Father is pleased and smiling at you and on you for all you’re doing!
