What two things must we do to become part of God’s covenant people?
(Look in 2 Nephi 30:2 for the answer.)
What is this path? What is the gate?
read 2 Nephi 31:17–18
Marion G. Romney taught that the baptism of fire by the Holy Ghost ‘converts [us] from carnality to spirituality. It cleanses, heals, and purifies the soul. … Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, repentance, and water baptism are all preliminary and prerequisite to it, but [the baptism of fire] is the consummation. To receive [this baptism of fire] is to have one’s garments washed in the atoning blood of Jesus Christ’ (Learning for the Eternities,comp. George J. Romney , 133; see also 3 Nephi 27:19–20).
2 Nephi 31:18, the word strait means narrow, strict, exacting,
and allowing for no deviation. Nephi used this word to
describe the path we must take after baptism in order to
receive eternal life.
