3 Nephi 19:2-3 -- On Laboring to Hear the Lord

"And it was noised abroad among the people immediately, before it was yet dark, that the multitude had seen Jesus, and that he had ministered unto them, and that he would also show himself on the morrow unto the multitude.
Yea, and even all the night it was noised abroad concerning Jesus; and insomuch did they send forth unto the people that there were many, yea, an exceedingly great number, did labor exceedingly all that night, that they might be on the morrow in the place where Jesus should show himself unto the multitude."
3 Nephi 19:2-3

Can we imagine having that opportunity to see Christ, and knowing that he would come again the next day?  Wouldn't we do everything we could to gather in our friends and our families, and even tell random strangers about the amazing thing that could happen, and that they could see for themselves?

I think we forget sometimes, that listening to the prophets is the next best thing to this.  Let's do everything in our power to be there, with our friends, and our families, and even tell random strangers if possible, the amazing opportunity that we all have to listen to God's prophets and feel the spirit of the Lord, again, tomorrow in General Conference.  It matters.

Just as we would if we were expecting to see Christ tomorrow, let's, today, pray and prepare for that day, being ready to do what the Lord asks, and dedicating our hearts to understanding and learning what the Lord wants us to hear.
