Helping Others Find Faith in Christ

I challenge you to help God’s children return to their Christian faith and to the strong religious foundation that is so essential for peace of mind and real happiness. Read the full article. —Elder L. Tom Perry



Latter-day Saints Must Raise Our Voices

  • The Book of Mormon warns us about drifting from our faith (Alma 45:24).
  • Our faith must become more firm and sure.
  • We must talk of Christ (2 Nephi 25:26−28).

Symbols of Christ’s Sacrifice

  • Sacrifices were instituted on the earth as a gospel ordinance.
  • These were practiced and performed by the authority of the priesthood.
  • They typified the coming of the Son of Man.
  • The offering of sacrifices continued from Adam until the time of the Savior.
  • The offering of sacrifices generally ended after the Savior’s Atonement and was replaced by the sacrament (Luke 22:19−20).
  • Even in periods of apostasy these ordinances still continued.
  • Through all periods of recorded time we find the constant reminder of the mission of our Savior.

The Gospel Is the Solution

  • Christ has given us His gospel to guide and direct us during our time on earth.
  • The solution to the great world problems is in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
  • We declare to the world that the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to earth with the power and glory of His holy priesthood.
  • We are obliged to live so that when people come to us, they will find good fruit.
  • We covenant at baptism to represent Jesus Christ in helping others have the blessings promised if we follow Him.

What You Can Do

  • Pray daily and encourage others to do so.
  • Study the scriptures daily and encourage others to do so.
  • Remain worthy to attend the temple and live as an example to others.
  • Give daily acts of service and encourage others to do the same.

Elder Perry gives more counsel on sharing the gospel.

Rise to a New Sense of Commitment

  • I know that the only lasting happiness will come as we follow Jesus Christ by keeping His commandments.
  • May God bless you with courage, boldness, enthusiasm, and desire to help others restore or gain faith in the gospel of our Lord and Savior.
