Moroni 6

Attention all Bishops, Branch Presidents, Stake Presidents, Quorum and Auxiliary Leaders:  The Nephite General Handbook of Instructions is found in Moroni Chapter 6.  And it would be a good supplement to our current Handbooks.  After laying out the requirements to receive someone unto baptism, we’re told in verse 4 why their names were put onto a record of members – so they would be remembered and nourished by other members, “to keep them in the right way, to keep them continually watchful unto prayer, relying alone upon the merits of Christ, who was the author and the finisher of their faith.”

What was the purpose of their Sacrament Meetings?   See verses 5 and 6 where we read that they met to remember the Lord Jesus through partaking of the sacrament and “to fast and pray and to speak one with another concerning the welfare of their souls.”

The Nephites did not allow iniquity to flourish among them.  In verses 7 & 8 we find that they dealt with iniquity head on and with fairness.

Their meetings were directed by the power of the Spirit.  Leaders listened and obeyed, and I’m certain the people were blessed (see v. 9).

Moroni 6 is the ultimate “how-to” guide in the scriptures for leading a Stake, Ward or Branch family to the Savior.
