1 Nephi 21






Here Nephi quotes a chapter from the Book of Isaiah he found on the brass plates containing a copy of the scriptures.  How I love verse 16 where the Lord tells us “Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands.”  He is talking of remembering us and uses several examples where it is almost impossible for a person to forget another person.  As hard as those examples are, they can be accomplished.  But because of the Atonement, it is impossible for the Lord to forget you and me.  The scars He obtained from the prints of the nails in His hands when He was crucified remind Him of us.  He allowed Himself to be crucified because of His incredible love for each of us.  He was born to die for us, hence we are engraved “upon the palms of [His] hands.”
