On Sunday Rachel fell asleep in the car on the way to church so I stayed in the car with her until the last minute. To pass the time I read the Book of Mormon that we have there. I read Helaman 4 and 5 and was really struck by the word “remember.” I thought it would be interesting to find all the references in the Book of Mormon that say what we are supposed to remember. I think one scripture really sums up the reason for remembering. Mosiah 4:30 says, “O man, remember, and perish not.”
Here are some of them:
Remember the Words of the Lord
1 Ne 4:14 I remembered the words of the Lord
2 Ne 9:52 Remember the words of your God
Mosiah 1:6 Remember that these sayings are true, and also that these records are true.
Mosiah 1:7 Remember to search them diligently, that ye may profit thereby
Mosiah 2:41 O remember, remember that these things are true; for the Lord God hath spoken it.
Remember to keep the Commandments
1 Ne 15:25 Remember to keep his commandments always in all things
2 Ne 1:16 Remember to observe the statutes and the judgments of the Lord
Mosiah 13:16 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy
Alma 34:29 Remember to be charitable
Alma 37:13 O remember, remember … how strict are the commandments of God
Alma 37: 35 O, remember, my son, and learn wisdom in thy youth; yea, learn in thy youth to keep the commandments of God.
Helaman 5:6 Remember to keep the commandments of God… Behold, I have given unto you the names of our first parents who came out of the land of Jerusalem; and this I have done that when you remember your names ye may remember them; and when ye remember them ye may remember their works; and when ye remember their works ye may know how that it is said, and also written, that they were good.
2 Ne 10:23 remember that ye are free to act for yourselves—to choose the way of everlasting death or the way of eternal life.
Remember the Savior
1 Ne 19:18 Remember the Lord [your] Redeemer.
2 Ne 9:41 Remember that His paths are righteous.
2 Ne 9:40 Remember the greatness of the Holy One of Israel 2 Ne 10:20 Let us remember him, and lay aside our sins, and not hang down our heads, for we are not cast off;
2 Ne 10:24 Remember, after ye are reconciled unto God, that it is only in and through the grace of God that ye are saved.
Mosiah 4:11 Remember, and always retain in remembrance, the greatness of God, and your own nothingness, and his goodness and long-suffering towards you, unworthy creatures, and humble yourselves even in the depths of humility, calling on the name of the Lord daily, and standing steadfastly in the faith of that which is to come, which was spoken by the mouth of the angel.
Mosiah 5:12 Remember to retain the name written always in your hearts
Mosiah 16:13 Remember that only in and through Christ ye can be saved
Alma 29:10 Remember what the Lord has done for me, yea, even that he hath heard my prayer; yea, then do I remember his merciful arm which he extended towards me.
Alma 32:22 Remember, that God is merciful unto all who believe on his name; therefore he desireth, in the first place, that ye should believe, yea, even on his word.
Alma 38:5 Remember, that as much as ye shall put your trust in God even so much ye shall be delivered out of your trials, and your troubles, and your afflictions, and ye shall be lifted up at the last day.
Helaman 5:9 Remember that there is no other way nor means whereby man can be saved, only through the atoning blood of Jesus Christ, who shall come; yea, remember that he cometh to redeem the world.
Helaman 5:10 Remember … that the Lord surely should come to redeem his people, but that he should not come to redeem them in their sins, but to redeem them from their sins.
Helaman 5:12 Remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation
3 Ne 18:7 And if ye do always remember me ye shall have my Spirit to be with you.
Moroni 4:3 That they are willing to take upon them the name of thy Son, and always remember him, and keep his commandments which he hath given them, that they may always have his Spirit to be with them. Amen.
Moroni 5:2 That they do always remember him, that they may have his Spirit to be with them.
Moroni 10:3 Remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your hearts.
Moroni 10:18 remember that every good gift cometh of Christ. Moroni 10:19 Remember that he is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and that all these gifts of which I have spoken, which are spiritual, never will be done away, even as long as the world shall stand, only according to the unbelief of the children of men.
