"Angels speak by the power of the Holy Ghost; wherefore, they speak the words of Christ. Wherefore, I said unto you, feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do."
2 Nephi 32:3
This is a great scripture. It tells us to listen to angels, which is always a good plan... but it also tells us that we should feast upon the words of Christ. And one of the places, besides direct angelic messengers, that we get those words... is right here, in the scriptures. And WHY should we feast? Because the words of Christ will lead us in our lives... tell us all the things that we need to do. Help us whenever we are stuck. It's like Christ sitting down and telling us these stories like a parable for our lives... and we have to see how they fit in, and get the lesson. :) And sometimes they aren't hard to figure out at all... it's plain and simple and pure. So directness when we need it and depth when we need it... and everything to learn. You can never say "I know the scriptures" .... how could anyone know all there is in there... layers upon layers upon layers. More to learn every time... and a promise here of direction and guidance and application to our lives. :)
