A Savior on Mount Zion…

… is what T.J. and I are assigned to talk on this Sunday at church.

That’s right, we got called to speak.  I guess it’ll be a good experience for me.  Although I am dreading having to write (and give) the talk, I know I’ll learn a lot from it.

Well, what do you think I should talk specifically about?  The first thing that I thought of when I heard the topic was going to the temple and doing saving ordinances for others. But in advertising we are taught to not go with the first thing that comes to our heads. That is usually the easy way out and the most common thing about what you were thinking about.

So, I kind of want to do something else.  I think I want to talk about being an example to others and the difference it will make.

I was reading in 2 Nephi 1 last night where Lehi is pleading with his children to keep the commandments and follow the Lord.

“Awake,” he says, “Awake.”

Through Lehi’s powerful testimony, dedication, and most importantly perseverance, he was an example to his children and was a Savior on Mount Zion for his posterity.

What do you think?  Should I go with this?  Do you have any other examples or scriptural references?

Oh by the way, you should read the rest of this chapter and imagine your father or Bishop saying the words to you.  It really is a powerful chapter and helps you realize what you need to be doing in your life.
