2 Nephi 25:26 -- On Christ-Focused Love

"And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins."
2 Nephi 25:26

This is a good reminder that our focus should always be Christ, who died for us and made salvation possible.  I like the idea of talking, rejoicing, preaching, prophesying, and writing about Christ and focusing on teaching others.  It is only through the idea of Christ's atonement that we can build Zion and become unified and perfected.

Today, if we are able to do these things and rejoice in and spread the good word, let us do so.  And if we aren't there yet, let's focus on learning of Christ, and first obtaining his spirit and his gospel (D&C 11:21).  It's important to listen and understand and have the spirit with us, so that we're instruments in his hands rather than spreading our own ideas.

As we put Christ first in our lives and remember every day what he did for us, and how much we need him, it helps us to become meek and to understand what our relationship with our fellow beings should be.  Let's go forward in love, following Christ's example of helping and serving others, and making sure that our faith in and love for Christ is reflected in the way that we treat our fellow humans.  As we do, we can rejoice with them in the gospel as it points our way to God.
