I WILL MAKE AN INSTRUMENT OF THEE
Updated: Apr 7
There are few things in life that bring as much JOY as the joy that comes from assisting another improve his or her life by COMING UNTO CHRIST.
As sisters we are all called to the work... to serve right where we stand whether that be in the missionary field or in our neighborhood.
I like to think that the Lord is my missionary companion. If His work and His glory is to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man, then my work is to be an instrument in His hands and help love people to Him. As we apply His powerful doctrine of ministering to others it helps them feel of His love through us.
It has been my sacred opportunity and responsibility of doing this very thing, of helping love some of my extended family members to Christ. With God's help and when the time was right, I approached my wonderful parents and suggested that we have a daily devotional over the phone where we could turn aside from the things of the world and study the word of God. Each weekday morning I called them, we would pray together and then study together. We started by reading several key books on the Atonement of Jesus Christ. We next focused on and read the Book of Mormon and then the New Testament.
A few years into doing our daily devotionals, my mother passed and graduated from this earth life. She was an exceptional woman who shared with me so many of the things I love most in my life... reading great books, the study of history, museums, art and a passion for learning. I count it as one of the greatest blessings of my life to share back with her the gospel, more fully.
Truly our joy is increased when we become instruments in His hands and we become a missionary to many.
Will you love people to Him this week? Who will that person be?
