I believe this is one of my most favorite scriptures, I love the directions and the sacred promises.
It says to me that living in perfect hope and Light, with the Love of God and man, will enable us to live the plan of happiness, here on earth and eternally with our Heavenly Father. Forever.
2 Ne. 31: 20
20 Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life.
As you feast on the scriptures, look for if/then promises. In the scriptures, the Lord often tells us that if we fulfill certain commandments, then we will receive certain blessings. What is the blessing promised in 2 Ne. 31:20?
“If we are true and faithful in this life, we may obtain eternal life. … Eternal life is to gain exaltation in the highest heaven and live in the family unit.”—Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, quoted in Ensign, Mar. 2002, 22.
“Patient endurance permits us to cling to our faith in the Lord and our faith in His timing when we are being tossed about by the surf of circumstance. Even when a seeming undertow grasps us, somehow, in the tumbling, we are being carried forward.”—Elder Neal A. Maxwell of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, quoted in Ensign, May 1990, 34.
