Sunday Musing 37

     
     
This morning I'm just sharing a couple of ideas.
     First, I had the following thought come into my mind this morning:  "Come to the Lord and see what He can do for you."  I believe that refers to how I can change for the better by coming unto Christ.  It also refers to his desire to bless me.  This is true for all of us!
    I love the quotes below by Joseph Smith, which are related to one above (it's a secondhand source--but a good one).


......"If men do not comprehend the character of God, they do not comprehend themselves. I want to go back to the beginning, and so lift your minds into more lofty spheres and a more exalted understanding than what the human mind generally aspires to....."
“… The scriptures inform us that ‘This is life eternal that they might know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent.’ [John 17:3.]
.......“If any man does not know God, and inquires what kind of a being He is,—if he will search diligently his own heart—if the declaration of Jesus and the apostles be true, he will realize that he has not eternal life; for there can be eternal life on no other principle."
“My first object is to find out the character of the only wise and true God, and what kind of a being He is. …"
“… Having a knowledge of God, we begin to know how to approach Him, and how to ask so as to receive an answer. When we understand the character of God, and know how to come to Him, He begins to unfold the heavens to us, and to tell us all about it. When we are ready to come to Him, He is ready to come to us.”9  (https://www.lds.org/manual/teachings-joseph-smith/chapter-2?lang=eng#9-36481_000_006
