“O then despise not, and wonder not, but hearken unto the words of the Lord, and ask the Father in the name of Jesus for what things soever ye shall stand in need. Doubt not, but be believing, and begin as in times of old, and come unto the Lord with all your heart, and work out your own salvation with fear and trembling before him.”
Mormon and Moroni are some of the few Nephites left as the Lamanites destroy the remainder of their people. Mormon has abridged the records of his people from the time of Lehi to his own day, and now he adds his final words to the plates. He calls on the future remnant of the Lamanites to believe in Jesus Christ. He then turns the plates over to his son Moroni.
Moroni is the last of the Nephites, and although he is alone, he has a great work to do. He has seen the latter days in a vision, and he adds his message to his father’s writings, urging us to repent and be believing. He reminds us that miracles can only happen through faith in Jesus Christ.
“Please, first doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith. We must never allow doubt to hold us prisoner and keep us from the divine love, peace, and gifts that come through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.” Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Why is the Book of Mormon of great worth to us today?
How do you think Moroni felt to be alone?
What great work did Moroni have left to do?
Why is it important to “doubt not, but be believing?”
In Mormon 9:20–21, Moroni tells us the "ingredients" needed for miracles to be possible. In this recipe, the right ingredients make a pudding appear on the bottom as a cake layer "miraculously" rises to the top!
