This precious gift of priesthood power brings with it not only solemn responsibilities but also special blessings for ourselves and for others. … Much is expected of us.

A Wonderful Gift

  • “The rights of the priesthood are inseparably connected with the powers of heaven” (D&C 121:36).
  • We have the responsibility to guard and protect that priesthood.
  • We are to be worthy of all the glorious blessings our Father in Heaven has in store for us.

Solemn Responsibilities

  • Stand in holy places.
  • Remember who you are and what God expects you to become.
    • You are a child of promise.
    • You are a man of might.
    • You are a son of God.

Special Blessings for Us and Others

A faithful and worthy bearer of the priesthood can exercise that priesthood, blessing his life and that of others.
