"The Book of Mormon speaks of the ancient covenants God made with His children; the
Bible tells of great prophets who also received these covenants by faith. The Book of
Mormon testifies of Christ and His Atonement; the Bible provides the account of His
birth, ministry, death, Atonement, and Resurrection. Thus, the Bible and Book of Mormon
complement and enrich each other." Preach My Gospel, pg 106.
I love to read and study my scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon, because it gives me peace in a harried world and answers my questions about life and it teaches me the truths that I need to know in order to return to my Heavenly Father some day. It helps me to be a better person for myself and my family.
I would like to share a few of my favorite verses (I have many!) from the Book of Mormon. These passages most definitely testify of Christ.
This one is unmistakeable as to who it is that we speak of and who it is that we believe in and worship...................
2 Nephi 25: 26
26 And we atalk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we bprophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our cchildren may know to what source they may look for a dremission of their sins.
These next two passages are similar and I love the way it says to us to "feast upon the words of Christ". I can testify to you that if you do just that--feast upon the words of Christ by reading and studying the scriptures you will come to know Him more closely and your knowledge and testimony will grow and you will have a peace that you cannot otherwise obtain. You will receive answers to your questions. Just like the last verse states "the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do. Go ahead give it a try! Think of a question, offer a sincere prayer asking your question and then go to your scriptures, be it the Bible or the Book of Mormon and see if you don't get an answer.
2 Nephi 31:20
20 Wherefore, ye must press forward with a asteadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of bhope, and a clove of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and dendure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eeternal life.
2 Nephi 32:3
3 aAngels speak by the power of the Holy Ghost; wherefore, they speak the words of Christ. Wherefore, I said unto you, bfeast upon the cwords of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will dtell you all things what ye should do.
