 December 6 – Fulfilled. Jesus would be a Light to the Gentiles. Isaiah 42:1-9 “Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. 2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. 3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. 4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law. 5 ¶ Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: 6 I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; 7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house. 8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. 9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.”

Let the unsaved see the true Light that resides in you today.  As Christians we have a tendency to become “comfortable with our own friends”.  To be honest here; when you’re a Mormon it’s scary to step spiritually closer to someone who is a Christian, but for some unexplained reason you can’t help yourself but be drawn in further.  Show them from the scriptures what they’ve been taught is the direct opposite of the truth.  The everlasting gospel they’ve mentioned here is not a restoration of the gospel.  The everlasting covenant is Jesus Christ and Him crucified!

“Christ is the light of the world, and the gospel is his message of light and salvation to all men.”I have sent mine everlasting covenant into the world,” he said, speaking of the restoration of the gospel, “to be a light to the world, and to be a standard for my people, and for the Gentiles to seek to it.” (D. & C. 45:9.) Where the gospel is there is light; where the gospel is not darkness prevails.”  Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon Doctrine, 444.
