#BOMTC Day 10, April 16~2 Nephi 2 or Pages 55-60: “It’s My Vote That Counts”–Agency and Accountability

#BOMTC Day 10, April 16~2 Nephi 2 or Pages 55-60 (2)Lehi teaches some great doctrine about the Plan of Salvation to his son, Jacob.
Jacob appears to be relatively young, but very spiritually mature (2 Nephi 2:2-4). Lehi is able to lay out God’s Plan in such a way that we are able to see clearly that ANYONE can have ETERNAL LIFE—you just have to want it MORE than anything else.
Therein is the problem for me. Sometimes I give up what I want MOST for what I want at the MOMENT. I know what I should do, but I don’t always do it; and I know what I shouldn’t do, and I sometimes do it anyway.
The fact of the matter is that God has given me EVERYTHING that I need to gain Eternal Life (2 Nephi 2:4-9). There are no excuses for me. I am free to ACT for myself (2 Nephi 2:14,26). I CHOOSE my own outcome (2 Nephi 2:27-29). As President Boyd K. Packer is fond of saying, “The Lord is voting for me, and Lucifer is voting against me, but it is my vote that counts.” (Cleansing the Inner Vessel)

My every action and choice I make is either helping me gain “liberty and eternal life, through the great Mediator… or… captivity and death, according to the captivity and power of the devil” (2 Nephi 2:27). God wants me to choose “joy” (2 Nephi 2:25). It really is MY VOTE THAT COUNTS!
