Heart of Love

Sept. 18, 2011- Albany, Georgia

1 Nephi 11:3-6  I desire to behold the things which my father saw.

The Spirit said, “Believest thou that thy Father saw the tree of which he hath spoken?

Yea, thou knowest that I believe all the words of my father.

Blessed art thou, Nephi, because thou believes in the Son of the Most High God; wherefore, thou shalt behold the things which thou hast desired.

FTM- I must believe or have faith that I will receive according to my desires and act on that faith.

1 Nephi 11:10,21-23  What desirest thou?

To know the interoperation thereof.

Knowest thou the meaning of the tree which thy father saw?

Yea, it is the love of God, which sheddeth itself abroad in the hearts (desires and wills) of men; wherefore the love of God is the most desirable above ALL things.

Yea and the most joyous to the soul.

FTM- Nephi, hungered and desired to know some specific things, and these desires led him to discover the greatest thing anyone can desire, which is Jesus Christ, the Love of God, Eternal Life. Likewise, I will be led to the greatest desire and reward. I seek after steps of this desire to achieve the entire thing. Just like holding on to the rod and taking steps closer to the tree.
