What Shall I Do to Inherit Eternal Life?


There is great joy and love for you whether you are a lost sheep returning or a steady ninety-niner never straying. We are a family, when the shepherd left to find the one, that one was somebody’s child, somebody’s brother or sister, somebody’s dear friend. Just like I couldn’t rest until all my little sheep were safely in our home corral we should not be content with the ninety and nine. We need to reach out to the one.

Quotes that I used this episode

I am one of the ninety and nine

I’m not perfect but basically I’m doing fine

I have not lost my way, I have not gone astray

I’m just one of the ninety and nine

I am here in the heart of the fold

I’m not mindless but I try to do as I’m told

I’m not tempted to run and become the lost one

I am here in the heart of the fold

So why is my shepherd coming this way toward me

He’s holding his arms out and he’s calling my name

Yes he’s calling my name! But how, how can this be?

I’m just one of the ninety and nine

I have stumbled and fallen, but I’ve kept in line

I’m not one he must seek; I’m not all that unique

I’m just one of the ninety and nine

So why is my shepherd treating me like a lost lamb?

He’s searching to find me

And he’s holding me now, yes, he’s holding me now

And teaching me who I am

So why am I feeling like I’m the only one here

It’s like I’m his favorite

And he takes me aside, and he sweetly confides

These remarkable words in my ear

You are one of the ninety and nine

Have you any idea how brightly you shine?

You are safe in this fold, and it’s time you are told

That I know where you’ve been so I know where you’ll be

Because all of your life you’ve been following me

You are more than just one of the sands of the sea

Or just one of the ninety and nine

You are mine.

-Michael Mclean

“It is expected of this body of men that they will have burning in their souls the testimony of Jesus Christ, which is the spirit of prophecy; that they will be full of light and of the knowledge of the truth; that they will be enthusiastic in their calling, and in the cause of Zion, and that they will be ready at any moment, when required, to go out into the world or anywhere throughout the Church and bear testimony of the truth, preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, and set examples before the world of purity, love, honesty, uprightness and integrity to the truth.”

-Joseph F. Smith

“We need to remember that though we make our friends God has made our neighbors… Love should have no boundary”

-Howard W. Hunter

”Today there are hearts to gladden, there are deeds to be done—even precious souls to save. The sick, the weary, the hungry, the cold, the injured, the lonely, the aged, the wanderer—all cry out for our help.”

-Thomas S. Monson
