For we labor diligently to write, to persuade our children, and also our brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God; for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all we can do. —2 Nephi 25:23
Isaiah tells us about the scattering of Israel and about their gathering and redemption through Jesus Christ and the Restoration of His gospel. This is also what Nephi delighted in, and it’s going on today. The Book of Mormon is a big part of it too. And so are you. —David A. Edwards
