The LDS Daily WOOL© Archive - 2 Nephi 32:3

"His gospel is the perfect prescription for all human problems and social ills. But His gospel is effective only as it is applied in our lives. Therefore, we must 'feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell [us] all things what [we] should do.' (2 Nephi 32:3.) Unless we do His teachings, we do not demonstrate faith in Him." — Ezra Taft Benson, "Come unto Christ," [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1983], p. 132

"Let us not grow so busy in our daily activities that we thoughtlessly fail to 'feast upon the words of Christ.' (2 Nephi 32:3)" — Joseph B. Wirthlin, "Finding Peace in Our Lives," [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1995], p. 238

"It is accurate to say also that, when we are living well enough, the promptings of the Spirit will guide us in tactical matters (telling us all things we should do [see 2 Nephi 32:3]). Once we really know the 'what' and the 'why,' the 'how' will become clear." — Neal A. Maxwell, "Notwithstanding My Weakness," [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1981], p. 108

"Thanks be to the scriptures. Thanks be to the Lord for his words that are so imbued with his Spirit. You will face nothing in life for which the basic principles are not found in the scriptures. The key is to understand them and to share them with your family. Nephi taught the value of the scriptures when he said: '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). It is evident that the Lord does provide the answers in the scriptures if we will but seek them out." — Gene R. Cook, "Raising Up a Family to the Lord," [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1993], p. 47

"I now add my voice to these wise and inspired brethren and say to you that one of the most important things you can do as priesthood leaders is to immerse yourselves in the scriptures. Search them diligently (see D&C 1:37; 3 Nephi 23:1). Feast upon the words of Christ (see 2 Nephi 31:20; 32:3). Learn the doctrine. Master the principles that are found therein. There are few other efforts that will bring greater dividends to your calling. There are few ways to gain greater inspiration as you serve." — Ezra Taft Benson, "The Power of the Word," Ensign, May 1986 p. 81

The gift of the Holy Ghost, given to us by our Heavenly Father and administered by one having authority, includes the merciful promise: “If ye will enter in by the way, and receive the Holy Ghost, it will show unto you all things what ye should do” (2 Nephi 32:5). Through the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost, every member of the Church can receive “the words of Christ” directly (2 Nephi 32:3), at any time or place. This personal divine guidance helps us to remain valiant in the testimony of Jesus Christ and endure to the end of our days. Isn’t this wonderful!
Have we not reason to rejoice? –
