Keeping our word is important. Our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ can be trusted to always keep their word. We have proof of their honesty. For centuries the Lord promised those who were keeping the Nephite record that it would come forth at a future time to bless their posterity with the knowledge of their forefathers’ testimony of Jesus Christ. Verses 1 and 2 of this chapter repeat that promise. And we’re told that when that happens, it will be evidence that His promise of the gathering of the House of Israel has begun to be fulfilled. With that evidence, we can know that the Lord fulfills all His word. This promise came true when the Book of Mormon was published in 1830 among Gentiles first. Since the Lord kept His promise about bringing forth the Book of Mormon, which we can hold in our hands, we can be sure he’ll keep all his other promises. Let’s follow His example and keep our promises, too.
