Adam's Obedience - A lesson to us

Such a wonderful example of obedience is given when Adam offered Sacrifices to the Lord, and how wonderful was the Lord’s response to that; “And he gave unto them commandments, that they should worship the Lord their God, and should offer the firstlings of their flocks, for an offering unto the Lord. And Adam was obedient unto the commandments of the Lord.
 And after many days an angel of the Lord appeared unto Adam, saying: Why dost thou offer sacrifices unto the Lord? And Adam said unto him: I know not, save the Lord commanded me.
And then the angel spake, saying: This thing is a similitude of the sacrifice of the Only Begotten of the Father, which is full of grace and truth.” (Moses 5:5-7 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/pgp/moses/5.5-7 )

May we all be as obedient as Adam, and be able to have the blessings of the Lord, and the peace it brings to our lives.  It will not only lead us to peace in this life, but to eternal life in the world to come.
