I'm kind of a checklist or "to do list" person. If I have step by step instructions (in most cases anyway) I feel confident that I can accomplish any task. While most things gospel related cannot be checked off or completed at with just one effort, this verse is my "to do" list.
- Press forward being steadfast in Christ
- Have a perfect brightness of hope
- Love God and all men
- Feast upon the word
- Endure to the end
This verse also gives the two great commandments as outlined in Matthew Chapter 22:
But what I love most is that whenever we are given our "to do" list there is always some kind of reward or blessing promised. This one is the greatest of all...eternal life!
I can't think of a better goal to have than being with my Heavenly Father and family forever and ever. I know its possible if I give it my all and then rely on the Savior where I lack!
