This week in our Pathway class, we are studying 3 Nephi 23-30. In these scriptures, we are taught to be more like our Savior, Jesus Christ. In a previous post, I talked specifically about 3 Nephi 27:27 where it says, “Therefore, what manner of men ought ye to be? Verily I say unto you, even as I am.”
Reading through these scriptures has been a great reminder to me this week of who we need to be striving to be. As I watched videos this week that go along with our reading, there is one called “Be and Do to Become.” It is narrated by the Clark’s and they talk about this scripture also.
As they talk, they stress the importance of making sure that we are striving to be more like Christ each day. They explain to us that in order for us to become more like Him, we must Be more like Him and we must Do as He did.
It is not enough to think that we can just be more like our Savior without actually doing things as He did. We know that He went out to teach his people. We know that He would not leave anyone behind and that He loved everyone equally. We also know that He was humble and did everything that He did for our Father in Heaven and not for His own glory. We must also do these things if we hope to live a life like our Savior.
What a great example for all of us and what a great responsibility it is for us to try and emulate His life. I am grateful this week for this reminder of who we should be. As this week starts, we are starting as a class to work on another Christ-like attribute to focus on as we move forward. I am so grateful for these opportunities that I have been given to try and become more like my Savior.
Reading and studying the scriptures reminds me each day that these habits we are forming while in this class are habits that need to follow us through the rest of our lives. It is not something that we need to be doing for a grade. It is truly something that we each need to be working on each day so that we can truly Be and Do like He did……..so that we can continue to Become more like Him.
