Just as John, We are Called to the Work
Since the age change, there has been a huge influx of missionary work not only within the field but for the members too. Some missionaries are leaving right out of high school. Many sisters who never thought of serving a mission, have suddenly found themselves called to the work. We are so often taught that we must increase our light and understanding so that we will be able to share it with others.
In the Bible Dictionary John is explained as one who “filled his mission in every particular” From the time before he came to earth, he had a call to prepare the way for Jesus Christ. Each of us have the opportunity to become more like John, for he truly was a missionary of great worth to the world. We are each called to the work. Weather it be within our home and ward, or across the world, there is work to be done.
John was called to prepare the world for our Savior’s coming. He taught the people of Christ, who He is and what He was coming to do. He baptized them in His name. He opened the door for so many people to see the light of Christ. We too are called to prepare the world for His coming. For He will come again. In this last dispensation, He will come. As members of His church, we are called to prepare the way for Him.We, like John, must open doors. We must create opportunities. We must tell the world of what we know, for we know the truth. “With great power comes great responsibility.” As those with knowledge of His gospel, it is our responsibility, our calling to share what we know. It is our responsibility to follow John, and prepare the way for our Savior Jesus Christ.
