We Can Follow Jesus Christ's Example
I was asked to give a talk on how we can follow Jesus Christ’s example. We can follow his example by being baptized, going to church, praying, reading scriptures and a lot more.
In 3 Ne 27:27 it reads:
… Therefore, what manner of men ought ye to be? Verily I say unto you, even as I am.
I will share a story about following Jesus’ example.
There were two children in church that were friends, Kenny and Nathan. Some of the other kids in church thought Nathan was weird. They told Kenny, “we can be friends with you, but we don’t want you to be friends with Nathan.” Kenny thought about it for a second, then he said, “Nathan is my friend. I won’t stop being his friend.”
The next week, the other kids came back to Kenny. “We shouldn’t have asked you to stop being friends with Nathan.” After that, they all played and talked as friends.
Jesus never turned people away and he was kind. Kenny was trying to be like Jesus. Because he did what was right, the other kids learned too and everyone was happy.
I’d like to bear my testimony that I know this church is true and that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are real. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
