The Good Shepherd who calls us to his peace

"Behold, I say unto you, that the good shepherd doth call you; yea, and in his own name he doth call you, which is the name of Christ" (Alma 5:38

Christ has in other scripture called for us to come unto him.  He laments when we do not come unto him, as he did for those of Jerusalem, saying how he would have gathered them as a hen gathereth her chickens and they would not.  

The only place of sure safety is with our Good Shepherd.  His atonement will reconcile us to God, and will last forever.  We are forever in his debt.  

He states in other scriptures, such as Revelations and more, that as we come unto him, he will give us rest, and peace.  Not as the world gives, but as only he can give.  May we ever come unto the Savior, and in him find peace from the cares, trials, difficulties, and sins of the world.  His atonement delivers us from these.  

Read in the scriptures, pour out your hearts in prayer, and feel of the love and peace the Lord offers through the spirit.  And it will lead us back to our heavenly home.  

Christ lives, and his words are in the Bible and the Book of Mormon. I know they are God's words. God Showed prophets what to include in the Book of Mormon for our day. Read the Promise of the Book of Mormon online now at or get a free copy at
