Come Follow Me


A Day of Warning

Reinforces this week’s “Come Follow Me” study: Doctrine & Covenants 63
“That Which Cometh from Above is Sacred”


Doctrine and Covenants 63:63

“Wherefore, let the church repent of their sins, and I, the Lord will own then; otherwise they shall be cut off.”


Keep the Commandments, Children’s Songbook page 146


In section 63, the Lord warns the church of wickedness and rebellion. Some are seeking for signs, some are committing adultery, and some are mocking sacred things, including using the Lord’s name in vain. The Lord reminds the church of the blessings that come from keeping the commandments and warns them of the dangers of not keeping the commandments.

Even though the Lord sometimes chastens us to remind us that we’re making poor choices, he offers us the gift of repentance so we can make things right again. It’s important to learn to be humble enough to realize when we’ve sinned and be willing to repent and turn our hearts to the Lord so He can help us get back on the right path.


“What relief! What comfort! What joy! Those laden with transgressions and sorrows and sin may be forgiven and cleansed and purified if they will return to their Lord, learn of him, and keep his commandments” Spencer W. Kimball
