1 62 And again, verily I say unto you, my friends, I leave these sayings with you to ponder in your hearts, with this commandment which I give unto you, that ye shall call upon me while I am near—
63 Draw near unto me and I will draw near unto you; seek me diligently and ye shall find me; ask, and ye shall receive; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
64 Whatsoever ye ask the Father in my name it shall be given unto you, that is expedient for you; (D&C 88:62-64)
2 When you are uncertain, lonely, undecided, embarrassed, ashamed, angry, or otherwise afraid, as we may each feel at times, please remember our Savior. He is always here with us, inviting gently, powerfully, lovingly, be not afraid, only believe…His faithfulness is stronger than the cords of death. In drawing us to Him, our Savior also draws us to our Father in Heaven. Elder Gerrit W. Gong – Oct 2010
3 Yea, and cry unto God for all thy support; yea, let all thy doings be unto the Lord, and whithersoever thou goest let it be in the Lord; yea, let all thy thoughts** be directed unto the Lord; yea, let the affections of thy heart be placed upon the Lord forever. (Alma 37:36)
**Footnote: “Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not.”Christ speaking – D&C 6:36
4 “The greatest and most important of all requirements of our Father in Heaven and of his Son Jesus Christ…is to believe in Jesus Christ, confess him, seek him, cling to him, make friends with him. Take a course to open a communication with your Elder Brother or file-leader–our Savior.” (Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, 8:339)
5 20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. (Revelation 3:20-21)
Most Saints understand the Atonement, the Garden of Gethsemane, the resurrection and Christ’s sacrifice for us. It is the offer of an everyday Christ that gets under-utilized or perhaps never learned. He will indeed become one with us every single day, as we strive to be near Him. It is He who enlightens our minds, our understanding and sends ideas and revelation our way. [See D&C 88:6-13]
