His Holy Priesthood

Alma 13-16 | June 15-21

We are so blessed to have access to the power of the priesthood. In chapter 13, Alma explains the purpose and importance of the High Priesthood, also known as the Melchizedek Priesthood. High priests are ordained to teach the people to look to Jesus Christ for redemption, and the ordinances of the priesthood also help us look to Jesus Christ. How have the ordinances of the priesthood helped you to look to Jesus Christ?

Quote

“We declare to the world that the fulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth. We declare with boldness that the keys of the priesthood have been restored to man, with the power to seal on earth and in the heavens. The saving ordinances pronounced by the Lord as requirements for entering into eternal life with Him can now be performed with binding authority by those who worthily exercise the power of His holy priesthood.” L.
