2 Nephi 33:1 -- On Spirit-Infused Communication

"And now I, Nephi, cannot write all the things which were taught among my people; neither am I mighty in writing, like unto speaking; for when a man speaketh by the power of the Holy Ghost the power of the Holy Ghost carrieth it unto the hearts of the children of men."
2 Nephi 33:1

Nephi talks here about the Holy Ghost carrying his words to people's hearts when he speaks.  I really like that idea of spirit-infused words.  I think, even though Nephi thought he was bad at it, the same thing can work for written words, and maybe even our actions.  If we are doing God's will for the right reasons, and we are writing what God would have us say, I think God can help carry those words and actions to others.

God is spoken of as "the word" in scripture, and we also know that God can speak and make things happen... perhaps this idea of having the spirit infused into our actions is the first step to that kind of harmony with thought and action and faith.  Being so in tune with God to be able to feel that spirit in whatever we do is a powerful idea, and one that it would be cool to strive for.

Today, let's work on having the Spirit with us as we speak, write, and act.  Let's do good things and be the sort of people that the Spirit can testify of.  Let's not let the world corrupt us, but instead look to God and let him purify us, and make us worthy of that kind of spirit-infused communication. :)
