He saw other multitudes pressing forward; and they came and caught hold of the end of the rod of iron; and they did press their way forward, continually holding fast to the rod of iron, until they came forth and fell down and partook of the fruit of the tree.—1 Nephi 8:30
As we continually hold fast to the rod by keeping our covenants, we will be strengthened to resist the temptations and perils of the world.—Kevin S. Hamilton
