The priesthood is the power and authority of God. It is the power and authority by which the earth was created. It is the power by which all things are done. It is the government of God. Think of it! Heavenly Father wants to share His power with you . . .
As the next generation of missionaries nears its service as messengers of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints, each young man anticipates the distinctive honor of ordination to the Melchizedek Priesthood. As they look forward to their advancement to the office of elder, they must remember an important truth: priesthood power must be preceded by diligent preparation and understanding.
In Preparing for the Melchizedek Priesthood and My Mission, author Ed J. Pinegar offers a reverent and insightful exploration into this remarkable calling and answers a variety of common questions: What is the Melchizedek Priesthood? How can I prepare for my temple experience? When and how will I use this priesthood? From the restoration of the priesthood on the earth to the special privileges available to those who heed the call to serve, this thought-provoking volume will guide young men to a greater understanding of their duties as they go forth to magnify their priesthood power.
