Worthy to Be a Voice for God
Personal worthiness is an essential part of your preparation to serve a mission because you will need the Holy Ghost, and you cannot have the Holy Ghost unless you are clean (see D&C 42:14 and Helaman 4:24).
“No missionary can be unrepentant … and then expect to challenge others to repent. … The Spirit will not be with you. … You cannot travel down … forbidden paths and expect to guide others to the strait and narrow one.”
—Elder Jeffrey R. Holland
In the above video, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles teaches why you must be morally clean and issues the challenge to “be clean” or “to get clean.”
