"As a hen gathers her Chicks"
In 3Nephi 10:6 this is when Christ is speaking to the inhabitants in America, after he has just destroyed to wicked from the land, and right before he descends from heaven. He says "O ye house of Israel whom I have spared, how oft will I gather you as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, if ye will repent and return unto me with full purpose of heart." I really love this scripture because Christ is telling us that no matter what, he will always gather us to him if we have faith in him and, repent. He will be, to us, as the hen to her chicks, shielding us from dangers.
Christ took upon himself all the sin in the world. He is already reaching out to gather us, we just need to go and accept his embrace.
