It’s been a while since I have posted anything, I want to first thank those who responded by e-mail to share why they chose to not partake of the covenant or why they had. I had intended to share publicly with permission their many stories. However, after inquiring about it – it was for me – to see and hear or at least read what others experiences are. I learned that there are some who are actually learning to lean upon the Lord and are seeking Him. Some of which were directed by the Lord to partake of the covenant and some who were directed to not partake. In both circumstances, these obeyed the Lord, and both are right
- Will you give away ALL your sins to know God?
- Will you give your every possible moment to Him in thought, contemplation, searching your heart and soul in deep ponderous thoughts, and feeling after Him always?
- Will you sacrifice ALL things to know Him?
- Will you obey His voice at all times, in all places and before all hazards?
- Do you believe the scriptures when they say Christ is the way?
For the past two or so years since the Lord spoke these words to me: “thy ministry in my kingdom has begun.” I have sought to remain a proactive influential member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; I chose to serve among those who call themselves Mormons, I too have called myself "Mormon" at one time or another.
I love the gospel, I love Christ and I have a love for all people – I have no other desire than to serve Him and bring others unto Him. When I heard these words I prayed and asked the Lord that I be permitted to serve within the Church that I may persuade others to come unto Him and to know Him better than they do, He of course accepted of my desires, because it was my will. During that time I served as the Scout Committee Chair, and then in the Stake Sunday school presidency. I have sought to contribute to others spiritual growth and have labored among them. Sadly, many are content with what light they have been given, and do not desire an increase, nor were they, or are they prepared for greater knowledge. Yet others, very few, were seeking and knew not where to look and have embarked upon seeking the Lord for themselves– and yet some others, knew too much, that they could not be taught.
