Faith And The Book Of Ether

"You gotta show your Faith... We had some good training with our mission president on Monday and he talked about why faith is so important to missionary work. I was taking notes like mad. Then we read some stuff out of the Book of Mormon and it meant so much more to me. It was a part I had read like 50 times (Ether 12) but this time it made more sense and had more meaning. President Urry is the coolest. He said, "If you want to have faith to move mountains, you first have to pick up one stone at a time, moving if from one pile to the other to show your dedication then the Lord will do the rest". Oh my, it was great."

The Book Of Ether
The prophet Ether exhorts the people to believe in God--Moroni recounts the wonders and marvels done by faith--Faith enabled the brother of Jared to see Christ--The Lord gives men weaknesses that they may be humble--The brother of Jared moved Mount Zerin by faith--Faith, hope, and charity are essential to salvation--Moroni saw Jesus face to face. Ether Chapter 12

Faith
In order to come closer to Heavenly Father and receive all the blessings that He has for you, you must first develop faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. The Apostle Peter taught that “there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
But what is faith, and how can you develop it?

Faith in God is more than a theoretical belief in Him. To have faith in God is to trust Him, to have confidence in Him, and to be willing to act on your belief in Him. It is a principle of action and power.

To have faith is to “hope for things which are not seen, which are true” (Book of Mormon, Alma 32:21). Each day you act upon things you hope for, even before you see the end result. This is similar to faith.

The Book of Mormon prophet Alma compared faith to a seed. If you plant a seed and nourish it, if it is a good seed it will grow and eventually bear fruit (Alma 32:28–43). It is the same with faith. If you are obedient to God’s commandments, study His word, and have a desire to believe in Christ, faith will grow inside of you.
