As I wrote previously about 3 Nephi 30 (To Be Numbered Of The Lord’s People), I want to be numbered amongst the Lord’s people.
“For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, the is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” (Galatians 3:26-29)
What I believe is being said here, is that: I can receive the blessings of the Abrahamic Covenant by obeying the commandments, and through our faith in the Atonement of Jesus Christ. This is also not saying that I can only be a child of God, through my works and faith. For, I know that I am a son of God, and He is my Creator. Therefore, I am His son.
Those verses are also saying that, through my faith, I have taken the name of Christ. I wrote about this covenant in The Covenant Of Taking On The Name Of Christ. It is good to be reminded that, through my faith, I am born of God again, because I am dead to God when I sin; and when I have been born again of God, I have taken on myself the name of Christ.
By taking on the name of Christ, I promise that I will do all that He would do. Thereby, through my works and faith, I receive the blessings of the covenant. Those blessings are innumerable, and glorious beyond comprehension; and they include the peaceful, and loving, blessing of the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost. In other words, God will be with me in all that I do.
