September: Commandments

“Consider on the blessed and happy state of those that keep the commandments of God” (Mosiah 2:41).

Commandments are the laws and requirements that a loving Heavenly Father gives His children to bless them, protect them, and guide them back to Him. When we keep the commandments, we show our love for Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. As we obey the commandments and continually repent, we become more like the Savior and we are blessed with happiness, peace, testimony, and the companionship of the Holy Ghost. Obedience to the commandments helps us fulfill our divine role as daughters of God.

New Era Message: Come Follow Me

Focus on the Blessings

When you think about the word “commandments” for your Sunday learning this month (see, your first thought may be something like, “Commandments give me lists of things I shouldn’t do,” because that’s how a lot of the world thinks.

But that thinking overlooks the fact that commandments also provide a lot of things we should do, such as “be of good cheer” (D&C 68:6), “seek learning” (D&C 109:7), and “seek … the best gifts” (D&C 46:8), and thatcommandments are designed to help us. By keeping the commandments, we become better people and find peace and happiness beyond anything the world offers.

That’s why it’s important to remember that Heavenly Father gives us commandments so He can bless us in incredible ways through our obedience (see page 22). For example, here are some promised blessings of obedience talked about in the April 2013 general conference:
