Day 29: “The Children of Christ” Mosiah 5-12 pgs 157-170

Technically, this is part of yesterday’s reading, but I just couldn’t pass it up without quoting and commenting on it. King Benjamin is preaching to his people. He encourages the people to covenant to follow Christ and take upon them the name of Christ. All pretty amazing stuff considering this happens in 124BC!

Mosiah 5: [7] And now, because of the covenant which ye have made ye shall be called the children of Christ, his sons, and his daughters; for behold, this day he hath spiritually begotten you; for ye say that your hearts are changed through faith on his name; therefore, ye are born of him and have become his sons and his daughters.

[8] And under this head ye are made free, and there is no other head whereby ye can be made free. There is no other name given whereby salvation cometh; therefore, I would that ye should take upon you the name of Christ, all you that have entered into the covenant with God that ye should be obedient unto the end of your lives.

[9] And it shall come to pass that whosoever doeth this shall be found at the right hand of God, for he shall know the name by which he is called; for he shall be called by the name of Christ.

[10] And now it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall not take upon him the name of Christ must be called by some other name; therefore, he findeth himself on the left hand of God.


I just couldn’t pass up this passage of scripture without leaving it for my family that someday they might come unto Christ, to be spiritually born of him in a rebirth that has eternal consequence.
