Last week I shared that I recently came across a program in my files that I wanted to share with you. I am not sure who originally put this together, so if you know, please drop me a line so I can properly credit them.
This program is a personal one, and I have it printed on index cards with a cover and it is bound together by a metal ring in the corner.
I am sharing this over two weeks, so this doesn't get too long. This can be started at any time, and you will do it for 14 consecutive days. At the end, you will be closer to your Savior. This is week two of this program.
Come Unto Christ
A FOURTEEN DAY WALK WITH CHRIST
"Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice and open the door, I will com in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me."
Day 8 Forgiveness
Pray to Heavenly Father about some weakness and ask for help in overcoming it.
D&C 64:10...I the Lord will forgive whom I will forgive, but of you it is required to forgive all men.
D&C 58:42-43...Behold, he who has repented of his sins, the same is forgiven, and I, the Lord, remember them no more. By this ye may know if a man repenteth of his sins-behold, he will confess them and forsake them.
"Remember - it is Christianity to DO GOOD always, even to those who do evil to us. It is Christianity to love our neighbor as our self, and to do to all men as we would have them do to us. It is Christianity to be gentle, merciful, and forgiving...If we do this...we may confidently hope that God will forgive us our sins and mistakes, and enable us to live and die in Peace."
Day 9 Always Remember
As you partake of the sacrament make a special effort to think about the Savior.
In the choices you make today ask yourself, "Do I have the moral courage to make my actions consistent with my knowledge of right and wrong?" Do you "Always remember Him"?
Mormon 9:29...See that ye partake not of the sacrament of Christ unworthily, but see that ye do all things in worthiness, and do it in the name fo Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God; and if ye do this, and endure to the end, ye will in nowise be cast out.
"The Savior's spiritual suffering and the shedding of his innocent blood, so lovingly and freely given, paid the debt...for the sins and sorrows and pains of all the rest of the human family."
~Jeffrey R. Holland
Day 10 I Am of Infinite Worth
Tell yourself that you are beautiful and are of great worth to your Father in Heaven.
Make a list of things you would like to accomplish in your life.
D&C 18:10...Remember the worth of souls is great in the sight of God.
1 Samuel 16:7...the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.
"I have to live with myself, and so-I want to be fit for myself to know. I want to be able as days go by, Always to look myself straight in the eye.
I don't want to stand with the setting sun, And hate myself for the things I've done. I don't want to keep on a closet shelf, A lot of secrets about myself."
Day 11 Choose Ye This Day
Practice living righteous standards. Choose one in which you need improvement and set a goal to do better.
Joshua 24:15...Choose ye this day whom ye will serve, but as for me and my house we will serve the Lord.
Alma 20:4...feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do.
D&C 64:33-34...Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great.
"Be true to your convictions. You know what is right and you know what is wrong. You know when you are doing proper things. You know when you are giving strength to the right cause. Be loyal. Be faithful. Be true."
~President Gordon B. Hinckley
Day 12 Let Your Light Shine
How can you let your light shine? Fins a way to lift someone and bring a smile to their face.
Seek the Lord's help in finding someone to share His truth and light with. Pray for a missionary experience.
Matthew 5:14-16...Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle and out it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
D&C 115:5...Verily I say unto you all, arise and shine forth, that thy light may be a standard for the nations.
"One of the greatest challenges and opportunities in life is to learn how to bring more light, particularly the light of Christ into our lives."
~Chieko N. Okazaki
Day 13 His Image in Your Countenance
Identify Christlike qualities of a daughter of God. Choose one of those qualities and begin to develop it in your own life.
Alma 5:14...And now I ask you, ...have ye spiritually been born of God? Have ye received his image in your countenance? Have ye experienced this mighty change of heart?
3 Nephi 27:27...Therefore, what manner of men ought ye to be? Verily I say unto you, even as I am.
"You and I are sons and daughters of God, with something of divinity within us. Let us stand tall, my brothers and sisters. Let us live the gospel. Let us be busy in the church. Let us learn of its doctrine. let us feed upon its teachings. Let us grow in faith and faithfulness before the world."
~President Gordon B. Hinckley
Day 14 I Know That My Redeemer Lives
Share your testimony of the Savior.
Read in the April 2001 Ensign,"Special Witnesses of Christ"
D&C 76:22-24...And now, after the many testimonies which have been given of him, this is the testimony, last of all, which we give of him; That he lives! For we saw him, even on the right had of God; and we heard the voice bearing record that he is the Only Begotten of the Father - that by him, and through him, and of him, the worlds are and were created, and the inhabitants thereof are begotten sons and daughters unto God.
Job 19:25...For I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth.
"What you sincerely think of Christ will determine what you are."
~President David O. McKay
