Message 38:6

Some the Lord has called have slumbered and slept, while some have been true and will yet be true, their reward is sure. Again others will yet rise and heed their call.

Just because the Lord calls a person does not meant that person is not human and free of mistakes. If anything, after the Lord gives a responsibility to a person, it become harder to stay on the straight and narrow path. We must keep each other accountable for our actions before we fall to far from the truth.

Message 66: 11

The Lord in all ages has chosen man to do his bidding. Some humble themselves and have been and are true, others listen and have listened to the whisperings of Satan and where are they? Man may choose whom he will serve. Some have become evil and are as wolves in sheep’s clothing. Fear them not and have no part with them. Therefore, except they repent let them have no part in this work. Some will yet repent, others will go to destruction.

When we are working for the Lord we need to ask ourselves are we doing his work or are we doing what we want to be done. It only takes one wrong step to fall of the straight and narrow path. To make sure that does not happen it takes lots studding and prayer.  We also can’t be influenced by the ones that walk away. Some will come back, but some will not.

HELAMAN 3:24-30

And it came to pass that in this same year there was exceeding great prosperity in the church, insomuch that there were thousands who did join themselves unto the church and were baptized unto repentance. And so great was the prosperity of the church, and so many the blessings which were poured out upon the people, that even the high priests and the teachers were themselves astonished beyond measure. And it came to pass that the work of the Lord did prosper unto the baptizing and uniting to the church of God, many souls, yea, even tens of thousands. Thus we may see that the Lord is merciful unto all who will, in the sincerity of their hearts, call upon his holy name. Yea, thus we see that the gate of heaven is open unto all, even to those who will believe on the name of Jesus Christ, which is the Son of God. Yea, we see that whosoever will lay hold upon the word of God, which is quick and powerful, which shall divide asunder all the cunning and the snares and the wiles of the devil, and lead the man of Christ in a strait and narrow course across that everlasting gulf of misery which is prepared to engulf the wicked— And land their souls, yea, their immortal souls, at the right hand of God in the kingdom of heaven, to sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and with Jacob, and with all our holy fathers, to go no more out.

Christ has blessed his church in the past with great blessings and large growth, and he will do it again. Christ is true to his word, if we stay focused on him and walk on the straight and narrow path, we will receive so many blessings that it will be hard to believe. I can’t wait for the to happen again but in our day in age.
