09. Here Comes the Son

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

Who you are, and who you are becoming,
is far and away the loudest and most conspicuous
knock on the doors of heaven possible.
Truly Coming unto God

When you implement a life filled with celestial-level charity, you're not only helping someone.  You are spiritually coming unto God in the very way He has asked us, begged us, to consider:
"Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” (Matt. 25:37–40)

Your Perfect Alignment

Like the Savior, you are more diligently about our Father’s business (Luke 2:49) to love and to serve others — to feed the hungry, and clothe the naked, and comfort those that mourn (Matthew 25:37–39), to hold up the hands that hang down, and strengthen the feeble knees (D&C 81:5) — to believe and live the Savior’s doctrine, to follow after Him in His very footsteps, and put first in your life the things of His kingdom.
"For intelligence cleaveth unto intelligence; wisdom receiveth wisdom; truth embraceth truth; virtue loveth virtue; light cleaveth unto light; mercy hath compassion on mercy and claimeth her own; justice continueth its course and claimeth its own; judgment goeth before the face of him who sitteth upon the throne and governeth and executeth all things." (D&C 88:40; emphasis mine; also see D&C 50:24)

It's simple: As you increase in your light, you grow closer to the Savior.

You come to Him...and He, to you.

  1. Just to let you know this post did not fall of deaf ears. I have been pondering it and realize this is what I have been doing lately. It is wonderful to come to this blog, it is filled with light and truth. I can tell you are also a true disciple of Christ. I hope you don't mind my comments. I'm learning the importance of the written word. Also, how important it is to tell people thank you and what they mean to me, how they have blessed my life. (Doing this more in written form like good ole' fashion letters). Have a wonderful Independence Day!
