3 Nephi 12:20
Therefore come unto me and be ye saved; for verily I say unto you, that except ye shall keep my commandments, which I have commanded you at this time, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
When Jesus visited the people in the Americas, he organized His church, calling apostles to teach the people. Jesus then taught the people gathered at the temple many of the same things he taught the people at the mount in Galilee. Jesus taught about baptism and the gift of the Holy Ghost. He taught us to be meek, merciful, and pure. He taught us to let our light shine and be the” salt of the earth”, helping other people along our way. He taught that while the law of Moses gave us outward laws based on actions, His higher law encourages us to change our hearts and love others, including our enemies. As we try to live the gospel, it’s important that we refrain from judging others. Jesus repeatedly invites us to come unto Him, look unto Him, and endure to the end. If we do these things, He will give us eternal life.
“The call to come unto him has continued throughout time and is being renewed in our day. Modern scriptures are replete with the same invitation. It is an urgent, pleading call to everyone. Indeed, the calm but urgent appeal is still from the Son of God himself. He is, in fact, the Anointed One who will lift the greatest of burdens from the most heavily laden. The conditions for obtaining that assistance are still precisely the same. We must come unto him and take his yoke upon us. In meekness and lowliness, we must learn of him in order to receive eternal life and exaltation.” Howard W. Hunter
