Scripture Study: Jesus Christ

In the January 2017 Worldwide Devotional for Young Adults, President Russell M. Nelson challenged all that were watching to increase their testimony of the Savior by studying every reverence of Jesus Christ in the topical guide.

He later also blogged about it.

I recently felt inspired to take this challenge, so I created a document that I have printed out to track my progress and to take notes. You can download it here if you would like to use it. -> JESUS CHRIST – Topical Guide

President Nelson left a great promise for those who accept and fulfill this assignment:

How can you increase in your discipleship? I have an invitation for you that will help—it’s an assignment, actually—if you choose to accept it. Commence tonight to consecrate a portion of your time each week to studying everything Jesus said and did as recorded in the Old Testament, for He is the Jehovah of the Old Testament. Study His laws as recorded in the New Testament, for He is its Christ. Study His doctrine as recorded in the Book of Mormon, for there is no book of scripture in which His mission and His ministry are more clearly revealed. And study His words as recorded in the Doctrine and Covenants, for He continues to teach His people in this dispensation.

This may seem like a large assignment, but I encourage you to accept it. If you proceed to learn all you can about Jesus Christ, I promise you that your love for Him, and for God’s laws, will grow beyond what you currently imagine. I promise you also that your ability to turn away from sin will increase. Your desire to keep the commandments will soar. You will find yourself better able to walk away from the entertainment and entanglements of those who mock the followers of Jesus Christ. To assist you, refer to the Topical Guide for references under the topic “Jesus Christ.”
