My faith in Jesus Christ can be strengthened when I obey.
But what is faith?
Alma teaches us that, “If ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true.”
Here’s a picture of Jesus. Even when I cover it up and you can’t see it, the picture is still there. Faith is believing in Jesus Christ even though we can’t see Him because of the veil that was put over our eyes when we came down to earth.
When I grow up, I want to be big and strong like my dad. I need my muscles to grow big too.
One way to do that is by exercising ever day.
We can help our faith grow in the same way, by obeying Heavenly Father’s commandments.
Nephi was a very strong and righteous prophet. Because he obeyed his Heavenly Father and did everything He asked him to do, Nephi was full of the power of God. The power of God was able to protect him when he was in trouble.
