Follow along as hosts Ganel-Lyn Condie and John Fossum discuss impactful topics from this week’s Come, Follow Me lesson covering Exodus 24 and 31-34, including: 

  • What can we learn from the Mosaic Law? 
  • What can we put in “our holy of holies” to help us feel a stronger connection to God?
  • What happens when we get impatient with the revelation we already have? 
  • What does it mean to get lost in the “thick of good things” as it relates to keeping the Sabbath day holy? 
  • What boundaries can we create in our lives to help us simplify our focus on the Sabbath day?



How can you commune and connect with God this week in a different way? How will this influence your experience on the Sabbath day?

Link to Come, Follow Me Through the Old Testament Book: 

Institute Manual Quote: “It is unfortunate that many people, some even in the Church, think of the Mosaic law as a substitute for the higher law of the gospel. We call it a lesser law, and so it was, if the word lesser is used in the sense of progressive steps. But some people assume that lesser means of lower importance and significance, or of a lesser level of truth and righteousness.” (OT Institute Student Manual, Exodus 21–24; 31–35 The Mosaic Law: A Preparatory Gospel, as quoted in Real Talk Journal,  pg. 50)

John Taylor Quote: “We forget, sometimes, that we are the Saints of God; we forget that we have dedicated ourselves to the Lord, with all that we have; and we forget our high calling and our future destiny…. We condescend to little meannesses, … we falter and get into darkness, and lose the Spirit of the Lord. We forget that God and angels are looking upon us; … And, forgetting these things sometimes, we act the part of fools, … and we are then left to grope our way in the dark. But if we could live our religion, … observe [God’s] laws and his statutes, and keep his commandments to do them, we should feel very different; we should feel comfortable and happy; our spirits would be peaceful and buoyant; and from day to day, from week to week, and from year to year, our joys would increase.” (Journal of Discourses, 1858, “Blessings of the Saints,” 6:162)

Elder Perry Quote: “Aaron succumbed to the will of the people and told them to gather all their gold and silver and precious things and melt them into a form that made a golden calf, an idol that they could worship and carry with them as they journeyed. In the meantime, Moses was receiving the two tablets of testimony containing God’s commandments to His people. With the tablets in hand, Moses descended from the mountain.” L.Tom Perry- [2003–O:85, L. Tom Perry, We Believe All That God Has Revealed]

Elder Ezra Taft Benson Quote: “The record of the Nephite history just prior to the Savior’s visit reveals many parallels to our own day as we anticipate the Savior’s second coming” (Ezra Taft Benson, in Conference Report, Apr. 1987, 3; or Ensign, May 1987, 4).
