06. Becoming a Being of Light

Note: This is one of a series of posts devoted to the study of D&C 93:1, and the sixth examining the phrase "cometh unto me".

Christ, the Being of Most Light, helps us return to the Light.
It's indisputable that historic and contemporary composers have and are creating music which is inspired by God.  Their music is a form of light, for at their most fundamental levels, both music and light are frequencies or vibrations.  Light from God and music from God can have the same effects on us.
"That which is of God is light; and he that receiveth light, and continueth in God, receiveth more light; and that light groweth brighter and brighter until the perfect day." (D&C 50:24)
This light can quicken your understanding:
"And the light which shineth, which giveth you light, is through him who enlighteneth your eyes, which is the same light that quickeneth your understandings;" (D&C 88:11)
This is so because:
"...if your eye be single to my glory, your whole bodies shall be filled with light, and there shall be no darkness in you; and that body which is filled with light comprehendeth all things." (D&C 88:67)
Look at that one more time -- "that body which is filled with light comprehendeth all things."  Not just a few things or a couple of things; oh no, "all things".  That's a pretty powerful promise there, and is only natural because "light cleaveth unto light" (D&C 88:40) -- including Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who is "the life and the light of the world" (D&C 11:28).   

So I encourage you to take serious the admonition to "Arise and shine forth"!  Let your home be filled with inspired music, that you may "bring up your children in light and truth" (D&C 93:40,42).  Then "...let your light so shine before this people, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven." (3 Nephi 12:16)

I believe that in receiving light, then freely sharing it -- anytime, anywhere -- you yourself become a being of light.

And ohhhh, the things God can do with a being of light.  The possibilities are profound, the education is endless, the blessings are breathtaking.

And it can all start with something as simple as a smile.

I challenge you to put these words to the test.  What do you have to lose?

In so doing, you're ready -- in fact, you're more than ready -- to take a fantastic, momentous step forward in coming unto God that utilizes spiritual gifts in ways you likely seldom use.

Are you interested in that next step???

  1. “There is another responsibility correlated and even coexistent with free agency, which is too infrequently emphasized, and that is the effect not only of a person’s actions, but also of his thoughts. Man radiates what he is, and that radiation affects to a greater or less degree every person who comes within that radiation.” - David O. McKay

    And from me again.
    “Each of our spirits has an aura, a light within the radiates out around our being. Those in tune with the Holy Ghost are filled with light and let their lights so shine as to have a heavenly influence upon all with whom they come in contact.”
    This is what Christ meant when He said "Let your light so shine." May we become the heavenly, loving influence by radiating Christ through each of us.
