May we study the scriptures as Lehi did

"And after they had given thanks unto the God of Israel, my father, Lehi, took the records which were engraven upon the plates of brass, and he did search them from the beginning.

And he beheld that they did contain the five books of Moses, which gave an account of the creation of the world, and also of Adam and Eve, who were our first parents;

And also a record of the Jews from the beginning, even down to the commencement of the reign of Zedekiah, king of Judah;

And also the prophecies of the holy prophets, from the beginning, even down to the commencement of the reign of Zedekiah; and also many prophecies which have been spoken by the mouth of Jeremiah.

And it came to pass that my father, Lehi, also found upon the plates of brass a genealogy of his fathers; wherefore he knew that he was a descendant of Joseph; yea, even that Joseph who was the son of Jacob, who was sold into Egypt, and who was preserved by the hand of the Lord, that he might preserve his father, Jacob, and all his household from perishing with famine.

And they were also led out of captivity and out of the land of Egypt, by that same God who had preserved them.

And thus my father, Lehi, did discover the genealogy of his fathers. 

And now when my father saw all these things, he was filled with the Spirit" (1 Nephi 5:10-17 http://www.lds.org/scriptures/bofm/1-ne/5.10-17)

May we be as Lehi, and search the scriptures, and find the blessings of the Lord therein.  May the spirit touch our hearts as we read in the scriptures, and may it lead us closer to our Savior, Jesus Christ, and be filled with the spirit, as was Lehi.

This comes from the Book of Mormon, Another Testament of Jesus Christ. Along with the Bible, his words are in the Book of Mormon. Find out for yourself and read it's Promise online now at http://bit.ly/10t8QYm or get a free copy at http://bit.ly/11WKJ1G
