Charity Never Faileth ~ "Christ" Never Faileth

44 If so, his afaith and hope is vain, for none is bacceptable before God, save the cmeek and lowly in heart; and if a man be meek and lowly in heart, and dconfesses by the power of the Holy Ghost that Jesus is the Christ, he must needs have charity; for if he have not charity he is nothing; wherefore he must needs have charity.
45 And acharity suffereth long, and is bkind, and cenvieth not, and is not puffed up, seeketh not her own, is not easily dprovoked, thinketh no evil, and rejoiceth not in iniquity but rejoiceth in the truth, beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
46 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, if ye have not charity, ye are nothing, for charity never faileth. Wherefore, cleave unto charity, which is the greatest of all, for all things must fail—
47 But acharity is the pure blove of Christ, and it endureth cforever; and whoso is found possessed of it at the last day, it shall be well with him.
48 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, apray unto the Father with all the energy of heart, that ye may be filled with this love, which he hath bestowed upon all who are true bfollowers of his Son, Jesus Christ; that ye may become the sons of God; that when he shall appear we shall cbe like him, for we shall see him as he is; that we may have this hope; that we may be dpurified even as he is pure. Amen.

Temples- A key part in the Restoration of Christ's gospel

Temples were built in Old Testament times and have been part of God's plan from the beginning. So, what is the purpose of Temples?

Today, in modern times, the gospel of Jesus

Christ has been restored to the earth and temples are a key part of the work of the Lord taking place around the world.

Temples are a place of worship where Latter-day Saints are allowed to enter and perform saving ordinances for the living and the dead. These Holy edifices stand as a beacon of light to the world and symbolically represent Jesus Christ. On each temple is etched the words, "Holiness to the Lord," because it is His sacred house.

I enjoy going to the temple. It is a sanctuary of peace, a place of refuge from the storm of commotion all around us in the world today. My wife and I went to the Idaho Falls Temple

this evening and I wanted to capture a few shots of it...

Enjoy. . . I want to learn more about temples.

The prophet Nephi ~ A great example for each of us~

In The Book of Mormon, we learn from the prophet Nephi many different times. He is a great example for us to look unto when seeking the Lord's will rather than our own. Nephi sought the will of the Lord and was blessed. We too, can do this in our daily prayers.

I know that when I put my trust in the Lord and seek his will rather than my own selfish desires I am blessed.

Nephi was blessed in particular for 5 things he did:

aBlessed art thou, Nephi, for those things which thou hast done; for I have beheld how 1. thou hast with bunwearyingness declared the word, which I have given unto thee, unto this people. And 2. thou hast not feared them, and 3. hast not sought thine cown life, but 4. hast sought my dwill, and 5. to keep my commandments.

5 And now, because thou hast done this with such unwearyingness, behold, I will bless thee forever; and I will make thee mighty in word and in deed, in faith and in works; yea, even that aall things shall be bdone unto thee according to thy cword, for thou shalt dnot ask that which is contrary to my will.
