D&C 93:11-13, 20

Question

Following the Savior takes daily practice. We progress one step at a time, and sometimes we take two steps forward and one step backward. However, what is important is that we continue to move forward.
Reflect back on your life over the past year. What progress steps toward the Savior have you made?

Scripture

11 And I, John, bear record that I beheld his glory, as the glory of the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth, even the Spirit of truth, which came and dwelt in the flesh, and dwelt among us.
12 And I, John, saw that he received not of the fulness at the first, but received grace for grace;
13 And he received not of the fulness at first, but continued from grace to grace, until he received a fulness;
20 For if you keep my commandments you shall receive of his fulness, and be glorified in me as I am in the Father; therefore, I say unto you, you shall receive grace for grace.

D&C 93:11-13, 20

Quote

Brothers and sisters, the scriptures are like a developmental display window through which we can see gradual growth—along with this vital lesson: it is direction first, then velocity! Enoch’s unique people were improved “in process of time.” Jesus “received not of the fulness at first, but received grace for grace” and even He grew and “increased in wisdom and stature”.

Elder Neal A. Maxwell
