“I am called of God.
My authority is above that of kings of the earth.
By revelation I have been selected as a personal representative of the Lord Jesus Christ.
He is my master and He has chosen me to represent Him–to stand in His place, to say and do what He Himself would say and do if He personally were ministering to the very people to whom He has sent me.
My voice is His voice, and my acts are His acts; my doctrine is His doctrine.
My Commission is to do what He wants done; To say what He wants said; to be a living modern witness in word and in deed of the divinity of his great and marvelous Latter-day work.
How great is my calling!”
On a happy and higher note this week I had the opportunity to finish the Book of Mormon for the 2nd time in the mission. And this time it was different. I now see the Book of Mormon as the medicine for the sick and afflicted and we, as missionaries, are the doctors and nurses that have been called by the grand professor, even Jesus Christ. I invite all of you to read it cover to cover, even the introduction and all the witnesses testimonies. All of it! Pick a starting day and pick an ending day and then make goals and plans and a chart to mark off every day. It will truly bless your life and your soul as you search diligently and seek hard. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that it really is the keystone to our religion, as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The Book of Mormon is the literal evidence of our religion and beliefs. Read it, Study it, Pray about it, and then live it.
