3. Serve others

In the scriptures, we read that Jesus Christ always “went about doing good” (Acts 10:38). He was constantly serving others. He spent time with the sick, the afflicted, the sinners, and the poor. He taught, healed, and loved all who came unto Him. When we strive to treat others like Jesus did, we learn more about Him and become more like Him. 

4. Follow His teachings

Jesus taught, “If ye love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:15). Following the teachings of Jesus Christ shows our love for Him and our desire to be near Him. His gospel is the way to achieve true happiness and peace, both in this life and the next. If we strive to live a good life and repent whenever we fall short, we’ll feel closer to Him and feel of His love for us.
