Building Zion

All things we do for the cause of Zion - will be worth it.  They are the principles of the law of the Celestial Kingdom, including the law of consecration.  We will be blessed more greatly than we can now imagine - as we keep and obey these holy laws.  We would do well to heed this counsel.

"And Zion cannot be built up unless it is by the principles of the law of the celestial kingdom; otherwise I cannot receive her unto myself."  Doctrine and Covenants 105:5
(obedient, taught more perfectly, endowed with power from on high, faithful, humble, prayerful)

"For he who is not able to abide the law of a celestial kingdom cannot abide a celestial glory." D&C 88:22

"If thou lovest me thou shalt serve me and keep all my commandments."  D&C 42:29

"And behold, thou wilt remember the poor, and consecrate of they properties for their support that which thou hast to impart unto them, with a covenant and a deed which cannot be broken."  D&C 42:30

"Nevertheless they did fast and pray oft, and did wax stronger and stronger in their humility, and firmer and firmer in their faith of Christ, unto the filling their souls with joy and consolation, yea even to the purifying and sanctification of their hearts, which sanctification cometh because of their yielding their hearts unto God."  Helaman 3:35
