December 24 – Hebrews 11:6; “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
Like little children on Christmas Eve, we are restless when we are not rewarded by the Lord. We become anxious when we don’t get a quick return after witnessing or volunteering at the bake sale at our church. We don’t stop to realize that our reward is already here. Yes, there is a bigger reward in heaven awaiting us, but how much time is wasted while we wait for something better when all we have to do is to look back at history and to Him!
Two thousand years ago our Promise was delivered. We have an advantage that Abraham never had. He obeyed out of faith, never receiving the promises but believing God would provide for him. Hebrews 11:13.
The Mormons are working themselves to death and for what? Nothing. They are rewarded with nothing but the devastating news they weren’t worshipping the right Jesus that was born in Bethlehem. Even their own books say He wasn’t born in Bethlehem. If that simple thing is wrong, what else in their writings could be wrong as well?
What are you waiting for? Tell them the Promise is already here!
“And behold, he shall be born of Mary, at Jerusalem which is the land of our forefathers, she being a virgin, a precious and chosen vessel, who shall be overshadowed and conceive by the power of the Holy Ghost, and bring forth a son, yea, even the Son of God.” Alma 7:10.
