“Retain a Remission of Your Sins”
12 And behold, I say unto you that if ye do this ye shall always rejoice, and be filled with the love of God, and always retain a remission of your sins; and ye shall grow in the knowledge of the glory of him that created you, or in the knowledge of that which is just and true.
Elder Neal A. Maxwell said:
“Much emphasis was given by King Benjamin to retaining a remission of our sins (see Mosiah 4:26). We do not ponder that concept very much in the Church. We ought to think of it a lot more. Retention clearly depends on the regularity of our repentance. In the Church we worry, and should, over the retention of new members, but the retention of our remissions is cause for even deeper concern.”
