I dont have much time, but ya this was a pretty good week. We didnt have too much progress with investigators, we met a lot of new ones, and had quite a few come to church, especially Ruth,whos doing great. The other family we were focusing on Sandoval continued in their problems and for now dont want to take the step of baptism at all till they can be more christlike in house, a real bummer but its still a bomb family. The works going great here though.
Something small I found in the scriputures this week was in Alma 25, explaining why the people lived the law of moses. 16.Now they did not suppose that salvation came by the law of Moses; but the law of Moses did serve to strengthen their faith in Christ; and thus they did retain a hope through faith, unto eternal salvation
The law of sacrifice that prepared the way for the true sacrifice, and redemption from the atonement of christ, was to strengthen the faith in him. We have a lot that we can sacrifice as well, and as we serve, and sacrifice time, energy, materials, we are strengthened in our faith in Christ. I have seen that here a ton, seeing how in just walking a little bit of what Christ did, feeling what he did, seeing what it means to really sacrifice, even though its not near what he did for us, that understanding gives me a greater love for what he did. Cause only in that manner can we even fathom a little bit of what God gave to us. I testify that in walking with him, sacrificing what talents and efforts we have, our faith in him really does grow...the law of sacrifice is still in effect.
Have a good one,
