My Missionary Commission

I am Called of God. My authority is above that of kings of the earth. By revelation I have been selected as a personal representative of the Lord, Jesus Christ. He is my master; and He has chosen me to represent Him, to stand in His place, to say and do what He Himself would say and do if He personally were ministering to the very people to whom He has sent me. My voice is His voice, and my acts are His acts. My words are His words, and my doctrine is His doctrine. My commission is to do what He wants done, say what He wants said, to be a living , modern witness in word and deed of the divinity of His great and marvelous Latter-Day work.

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 faithhopecharity and love, with an eye single to the glory of God, qualify him for the work.
