The Atonement Leads From Bondage

In the morning, Misty and I went to a pancake breakfast for the opening day of a new year in Primary. Primary is Sunday School for those children under thirteen years of age. Misty asked me to come along with while she took pictures as the Ward Historian and Photographer.

This event was for the children to meet their new teachers. While eating, the children were told to ask their teachers several questions. There was a game in which the children were asked the same questions which they asked their teachers. We sat with the ten year olds, and they asked us questions, because their teacher was busy cooking the breakfast. We later helped his class during the game, and they won!

After we got home, we were still tired, so we went back to bed and slept until noon. After we got up, we cleaned around the house for several hours. We got a lot done!

At about 4:30 PM, I left Misty at home to watch some videos she had bought for Christmas, and I went to sister’s for the evening. I had a very inspiring doctrinal discussion with her boyfriend. Later, my niece and I went out for sushi, and then we came back and played ‘Up Words’. After that, we watched a little bit of television and I got home around midnight. It was nice to spend time with my niece. She is in my prayers.

I am thankful how the Lord delivers us after we have humbled ourselves to His will, but it takes humility first, just like what happened in Mosiah 21. Limhi’s people had sinned, which I had explained yesterday. They humbled themselves, and the Lord answered their prayers by inspiring the arrival of Ammon, one of the Lord’s servants. Some of Limhi’s people repented and entered into a covenant with God to serve Him and keep His commandments (Mosiah 21:32). Ammon would eventually help lead Limhi’s people from bondage.

I think of myself, how I have sinned, and repented, and I was led from bondage. He was held captive in many areas of my life, and I definitely feel much more liberty today. All of this has happened as a result of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. His suffering for me has allowed me to be forgiven for my sins. Therefore, I have been delivered through the work of His servants, just like Limhi’s people.

Yesterday, I also talked about the leadership in this country. Right now, our country is economically in bondage, and I believe that righteous leadership can lead us out from this bondage.

This is what I previously wrote after reading Mosiah 21:  Humility Is Key To Success In All Things
