The Church of Jesus Christ is rooted in the truth of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and God’s vision for mankind as communicated through scripture. It represents the kingdom of Jesus Christ as He established it here on earth; restored in glory for mankind with the same gifts, ordinances, structure and faith. The Church serves humbly as a gateway through which God’s spirit can be shared with the world. It is a spiritual home for people across the globe and a conduit for God’s blessings and miracles.
Isn't it interesting how desperate we get for what's on the second sign in today's Good Word graphic — God's direction, His leading, knowing which path to take — yet we're not so keen on doing what's in the first sign — acknowledging Him in all our ways?
When I think about the God I serve, I believe He is pretty straightforward. “Follow my commandments,” He says. “If you do, you will prosper.”
He makes things simple. He doesn’t beat around the bush (He just appears as one on fire from time to time.) He wants His children (that’s us) to stay close to Him and trust in His word.
But there’s still a mysterious way about Him sometimes, isn’t there? There’s a semblance of wondering that we often have. How will it all make sense in the end?
