How to Step Out in Faith to Help Change the World
What then would become of the element of faith? There would be no need for faith and it would be eliminated, giving rise then to this query: If faith is the first step or principle of the gospel and is eliminated, what happens to the gospel plan?
The very foundation will crumble. I submit that there is a divine reason why all things cannot be proven by concrete evidence. Those who doubt are prone to ask for proof or a sign that they might believe. Behold, I say unto you, Nay; for if a man knoweth a thing he hath no cause to believe, for he knoweth it. Alma then talked to his people about the principle of faith and likened it unto a tree seed which, after being planted, needed care and cultivation.
The desire for fruit caused the seed to be planted, and the planter had faith that it would sprout and grow. Alma continues to describe this seed of faith:. And now behold, if ye nourish it with much care it will get root, and grow up, and bring forth fruit. Thus faith becomes the first step in any action and must be the first step in understanding the gospel.
Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ brings us to a knowledge of the reality of his atoning sacrifice.
Focusing on the Fundamentals
We have need to be taught and to understand this first principle. In the closing two verses of Matthew is given the account of the final appearance of the Master to the eleven disciples on the mountain in Galilee.
His parting words give emphasis to the importance of his teachings and confer the great commission to others to teach all persons, in these simple, understandable words:. The emphasis is on the words teach and baptize. Following this scriptural admonition, missionaries of the Church, both young and old, are in the world teaching the principle of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and the other principles of the gospel to all who will hear. The nations of the world will be blessed by the message of the gospel they carry, and every person who has an honest desire for the truth will learn to know the true and living God and that Jesus is the Christ, the Redeemer of all mankind by his atoning sacrifice, if he will give heed to the message.
May the faith of each of us be strengthened by conscientious effort, I humbly pray in the name of Jesus Christ.
