Lehi said "But behold, the Lord hath redeemed my soul from hell; I have beheld his glory, and I am encircled about eternally in the arms of his love." (2 Nephi 1:15)
How can we be encircled about in the arms of Christ's love? Lehi tells us in this same chapter what the Lord's response is
"Inasmuch as ye shall keep my commandments ye shall prosper in the land; but inasmuch as ye will not keep my commandments ye shall be cut off from my presence." (2 Nephi 1:20).
We must keep his commandments. The Lord has said that if we love him, we must keep his commandments. Do we really show our love to the Savior by doing his will? That love will come to us now, and our joy will be full at the last day.
What joy will fill our hearts then, when we embrace the Savior, and return to dwell in his presence. If we have given ourselves to service in this life, and have repented and obeyed his commandments, as Revelations says, we will experience such joy at that time, and forever.
May we ever strive for that. That we may be "encircled about eternally in the arms of his love."
