Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! We can prepare our hearts to obtain a deep and abiding love of Jesus Christ.
And Samuel spake unto all the house of Israel, saying, If ye do return unto the Lord with all your hearts, then put away the strange gods and Ashtaroth from among you, and prepare your hearts unto the Lord.—1 Samuel 7:3
Even though we cannot force those things that matter most, there are ways we can help one another. That is, we can prepare hearts to obtain a deep and abiding testimony that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world.—H. Burke Peterson
This Day in Church History
1830: The Book of Mormon goes on sale at the E.B. Grandin bookstore in Palmyra, New York
1844: Joseph Smith meets with the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles in what is his last opportunity to address the group before his martyrdom.
1850: Colonel Thomas L. Kane, a nonmember friend of the Latter-day Saints, gives a lecture on the Church to the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. Kane’s address is one of the few non-member descriptions of the Church during this period that portrays the saints in a favorable light.
What is one way you can begin preparing your heart to receive a deeper love of Jesus Christ?
