Today's Favorite Verse: 3 Nephi 21:6

Today's Favorite Verse: 3 Nephi 21:6
"For thus it behooveth the Father that it should come forth from the Gentiles, that he may show forth his power unto the Gentiles, for this cause that the Gentiles, if they will not harden their hearts, that they may repent and come unto me and be baptized in my name and know of the true points of my doctrine, that they may be numbered among my people, O house of Israel;"

I pondered on how the record of the Jews came to the Gentiles, for the Jews were God's covenant people. The Jews denied the Christ but will yet receive him as their King by way of the Gentiles. The Nephites and Lamanites on this land were also his covenant people and fell away and were lost to their heritage and covenants. That by way of the Gentiles they are restored. The first will be last and the last will be first. Does that not make all equal in the sight of God? One people are not greater than another. The blessings of the House of Israel can come to all that receive their King.
