Priesthood Makes Us More Like Jesus

What makes The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints different than other churches is that we offer the priesthood to all males.  I would like to discuss this blessing.

Today, in Elders Quorum, we discussed living a life like Jesus’.  I mentioned that magnifying your priesthood calling is a step in the direction of imitating the life of the Savior.

Practicing the priesthood means acting in the name of God, our Heavenly Father.  Jesus did this all throughout his ministries among the New Testament peoples and the Book of Mormon civilizations.

In the Old Testament, all males of the tribe of Levi were to have it.  In the New Testament, Jesus allows even Gentiles to have the priesthood.  In the latter-days, God wanted all males who join His church to have this authority.

The priesthood brings us closer to God because it allows us to act in His name.

I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ.

Amen.
