Remember the Sayings of the Lord


( from the 3rd Book of Nephi pp.484-485 )

"5. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day: Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them: I never knew you; depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

6. Therefore, whoso heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell, and great was the fall of it."

~ 3 Nephi : Chapter VI


"1. And now it came to pass that when Jesus had ended these sayings, he cast his eyes round about on the multitude, and saith unto them, Behold, ye have heard the things which I have taught before I ascended to my Father; therefore whoso remembereth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, him will I raise up at the last day." 

~ 3 Nephi : Chapter VII ( first part of paragraph )



In these passages the Lord first says "whoso heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them..." then in the next chapter he says "whoso remembereth these sayings of mine, and doeth them..." Hear and Do, Remember and Do. And then the promise of being established on the rock and being raised up at the last day. How beautiful! Remember His sayings and do them!
