Enduring to the End

“Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life.”

Once you have entered the strait and narrow path, you must exert every effort to stay on the path (2 Nephi 31:16-21). You must continue to grow in understanding, exercise continual faith in Jesus Christ, repent, renew your baptismal covenants by partaking of the sacrament, and follow the guidance of the Holy Ghost. These first principles and ordinances of the gospel are a lifelong commitment, often called “enduring to the end.” By patiently and faithfully following the gospel path, you will find direction, peace, and happiness in your life, allowing you to draw closer to God and qualifying you for eternal life ( 2 Nephi 31:20). You will better understand your relationship with your Father in Heaven, will feel His perfect love for you more abundantly, and will feel hope and a sense of purpose even in an unhappy and troubled world.
