Tip of the Day, December 5

05 December

December 5 – John 1:9; “That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.”

Let the unsaved see the true Light that resides in you today.  As Christians we have a tendency to become “comfortable with our own friends”.  To be honest here; when you’re a Mormon it’s scary to step spiritually closer to someone who is a Christian, but for some unexplained reason you can’t help yourself but be drawn in further.  Show them from the scriptures what they’ve been taught is the direct opposite of the truth.  The everlasting gospel they’ve mentioned here is not a restoration of the gospel.  The everlasting covenant is Jesus Christ and Him crucified!

“Christ is the light of the world, and the gospel is his message of light and salvation to all men.”I have sent mine everlasting covenant into the world,” he said, speaking of the restoration of the gospel, “to be a light to the world, and to be a standard for my people, and for the Gentiles to seek to it.” (D. & C. 45:9.) Where the gospel is there is light; where the gospel is not darkness prevails.”  Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, 444.
