The Lord commands: “Come ye out from the wicked, and be ye separate, and touch not their unclean things” (Alma 5:57). As we leave these things behind, it is important to ask ourselves—where are we going? To what are we coming? “Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind, and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ” (Moroni 10:32). As I come unto Christ and strive to follow Him, He promises: “I will not leave you comfortless; I will come to you” (John 14:18).
