Ether 12:28 – Overcoming Weakness

Feb 28, 2016Religion0 comments

As I wrote my latest post it brought me to reflection of the conversation that Moroni has with the Lord in Ether 12. The conversation of Moroni’s weakness discusses his strength of speaking but weakness in writing. The Lord then teaches us an important principle of coming to him when he relays to Moroni, “And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them. Behold, I will show unto the Gentiles their weakness, and I will show unto them that faith, hope and charity bringeth unto me–the fountain of all righteousness.”

I wrote years ago next to verse 28, “Why the usage of the term bringeth? Is it that if we have this faith, hope and charity both exemplified in ourselves and from the Savior then the natural consequence is that we flow into Him, the Fountain of Righteousness? Is it that we no longer need to come to Him because we are brought into his presence. We would have no desire to act any other way. We solely would want to abide in the presence of God. We would no longer desire to sin. Satan would “have no power upon the hearts of the children of men” (Ether 8:26)”

So as I reflect on this verse this week I hope to have greater faith, hope and charity that I might flow unto Christ.
