“They… Did Worship Him; And… Did Kiss His Feet, Insomuch That They Did Bathe His Feet with Their Tears”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet

As a result of the miraculous hearings that had been performed, the people were overcome with feelings of gratitude and spiritual wonder. Tears of joy freely flowed and worshipful praises of love and adoration were poured out upon the Savior (compare 3 Nephi 11:19).

Most of us will not, in mortality, experience events such as these, but these attitudes of worship and gratitude and love for the Lord can be experienced and maintained in our mortal life.

Worshipping the Lord is more than just feelings. It is much more than mere sermon and song. True worship requires proper inward attitudes and outward actions, as well as spiritual feelings. ’To worship the Lord is to follow after him (2 Nephi 31:10; 3 Nephi 27:21; Matthew 4:19), to seek his face (D&C 93:1; D&C 130:3), to believe his doctrine, and to think his thoughts“ declared Elder Bruce R. McConkie. ”To worship the Lord is to put first in our lives the things of his kingdom, to live by every word that proceedeth forth from the mouth of God, to center our whole hearts upon Christ and that salvation which comes because of him. It is to walk in the light as he is in the light, to do the things that he wants done, to do what he would do under similar circumstances, to be as he is. To worship the Lord is to walk in the Spirit, to rise above the carnal things, to bridle our passions, and to overcome the world.“ (Doctrines of the Restoration, p. 371.)”
