Thinking About Good News

There are 239 chapters in the Book of Mormon and of those 239, Christ is mentioned in 233. There are only 6 chapters that do not mention Christ! That is why the Book of Mormon is called Another Testament of Jesus Christ: it testifies of Jesus. But even in the chapters and verses that don’t mention the Savior by name, we find examples and teachings that testify that His ways bring us peace and happiness and disobeying his ways bring us chaos and misery.

It is so simple and yet we forget and we complicate things. All we need to do to live the gospel of Jesus Christ is to do the right thing, right now. Jesus will then heal our past and guide our future. The only moment we need to concern ourselves with is the present moment.

If that isn't good news, I don't know what is!

I just finished reading 2nd Nephi again. Especially in those last few chapters, the doctrine of Christ is so plain and clear and powerful. I'm so thankful for the Savior and this book that so plainly testifies of Him, along with the Bible. :)
