Have ye inquired of The Lord?

Day 7 / 1 Nephi 15-16

“If there is any one thing most needed in this time of tumult and frustration, when men and women and youth and young adults are desperately seeking for answers to the problems which afflict mankind, it is an ‘iron rod’ as a safe guide along the straight path on the way to eternal life.” (President Harold B. Lee)
? How can you ‘hold fast’ to the iron rod?

15:3 Father Lehi spoke many great things
 Hard to understand
 Must inquire of the Lord (if you don’t understand)
 Hardened hearts

15:8 Have ye inquired of the Lord?
15:11 If ye will not harden hearts and ask me in faith, believing that ye shall receive, with diligence in keeping my commandments, surely these things shall be made know unto you.
15:14 …they shall come to the knowledge of their Redeemer and the very points of his doctrine, that they may know how to come unto him and be saved.
 Rejoice and give praise unto their everlasting God
 Receive strength and nourishment from God
 Accept and come to the true fold of God
15:24 ‘Rod of Iron’ is the word of God
 Hearken unto the word of God
 Hold fast unto the word of God
o Never perish
o Temptations and fiery darts of the adversary will never overpower them unto blindness
o Never lead them to destruction
