1 Nephi 1:10 Follow Christ

1 Nephi 1:10
Follow Christ- Eternal Glory

Lehi saw twelve others descending , following Christ (whose luster was above that of the noon-day sun. the 12 were following him and their brightness exceeded the stars.

Christ called 12 apostles and gave them the keys of heaven and the power of the priesthood. Their brightness is a result of their righteousness. See Daniel 12:13
At the time Lehi had his vision they were not yet born but they were chosen and fore ordained.

Dan 12:13 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

Isa 62:1 Righteousness go forth as brightness.

Abraham 4:4 divided the light, or caused it to be divided from darkness [so...righteousness shows as brightness because it is divided from darkness}

D&C 65:5
Clothed in brightness of His glory.

He brought the 12 with Him to present the book to Lehi. He chose them in the pre-mortal life.

As the 12 followed Christ and came to Lehi and were as bright as the stars- so I will follow Christ- Do his work and the more righteous we become and divided from evil then the brighter (to an earthly degree) will be our countenance and eventually in the here-after we can achieve the celestial glory and receive the brightness given to the righteous.

4/12 Families Under Fire
President Eyering
“And that same sociality which exists among us here will exist among us there, only it will be crowned with eternal glory, which glory we do not now enjoy.

10/11 The Divine Gift of Repentance- Elder Todd D. Christoffereson
With repentance we can steadily improve in our capacity to live the celestial law, for we recognize that “he who is not able to abide the law of a celestial kingdom cannot abide a celestial glory (D&C 88:22)

11/14 Until We Meet Again
President Monson
May we be people of honesty and integrity, trying to do the right thing at all times and I all circumstances. May we be faithful followers of Christ, examples of righteousness, thus becoming “lights in the world”.
