Called To Serve
A true mission is total dedication to the glory of Our Creator and to the service of our fellow man.
No words can better describe our lives from August 5, 2013 to February 5, 2015 when we are in the full time service of the Master than Section 4 of our book of scripture entitled The Doctrine and Covenants.
These words of scripture describe the ideals of valiant service to the Lord, the calling of missionary service, the total dedication required, service to give glory to God, and the personal qualities required to accomplish His work of the immortality and eternal life of man.
"Now behold, a marvelous work is about to come forth among the children of men.
Therefore, O ye that embark in the service of God, see that ye serve Him with all your heart, might, mind and strength, that ye may stand blameless before God at the last day.
Therefore, if ye have desires to serve God ye are called to the work;
For behold the field is white already to harvest; and lo, he that thrusteth in his sickle with his might, the same layeth up in store that he perisheth not but bringeth salvation to his soul.
And faith, hope, charity and love, with an eye single to the glory of God, qualify him for the work.
Remember faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, brotherly kindness, godliness, charity, humility, diligence.
Ask, and ye shall receive; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
