What council does Christ give (and what example does he set) about how to take care of the people in our community?
Jesus is about to leave, but sees that the Nephites do not want Him to go. So he stays a little longer and heals the sick and blesses the little children. He administers the sacrament and teaches about renewing baptismal covenants. The disciples teach and baptize. Christ returns and prays with and ministers to the multitudes.
3 Nephi 17:17
“And no tongue can speak, neither can there be written by any man, neither can the hearts of men conceive so great and marvelous things as we both saw and heard Jesus speak; and no one can conceive of the joy which filled our souls at the time we heard him pray for us unto the Father.”
Rachael D: This is one of my favourite days so far, there are so many gems in these chapters. I like in 3 Nephi 18 when they partake of the sacrament they are filled with the spirit, we can have this blessing every Sunday. I like verse 32, where he teaches us to not turn anyone away because we don’t know when they will repent. When they come unto him with a full purpose of heart, he will heal them. We can always come back and we can be healed, I love this blessing.
