My Personal Book of Mormon Insight

After being introduced to the restored gospel as a teenager, one particular Book of Mormon passage amazed, strengthened, and gave me hope.

It was 2 Nephi 4: 16-35.

This confession of personal weaknesses and temptations, by a man so valiant in his love of and obedience to God, profoundly touched my heart.

Nephi helped convince me that, even with my own flaws and shortcomings, I could, like him, "know in whom I have trusted" and eventually come to the point wherein "I may shake at the appearance of sin".

In was then, I believe, that I began to begin to understand and treasure the hope and confidence that Christ gives to all of us through His infinite atonement on our behalf, and that, through Him and his loving Grace, we can overcome every obstacle and heartache in our lives.

The above appeared in the September 23, 2010, issue of Mormon Times.
