came to a fork and wondered which way.
Both paths leading to a different location,
but which one would be the right destination?
Scratching their heads, speculating which trail they dare.
They decided to kneel down and offer a prayer.
Simple but fervent their words were sincere,
as they spoke out their questions for God to hear.
"Which way to go? And what path is best?
which should we trust to lead to your rest?
Is the right one correct or be the left one right?
Lead us please God, for you've optimum sight.
As a missionary I have met travelers similar to these many times. They are often stuck at the fork in the road, screwed and confused with which direction to go. They way for them to go is through Jesus
As the scriptures teach in Alma 38:9
And now, my son, I have told you this that ye may learn wisdom, that ye may learn of me that there is no other way or means whereby man can be saved, only in and through Christ. Behold, he is the life and the light of the world. Behold, he is the word of truth and righteousness.
And Helaman 5:9
O remember, remember, my sons, the words which king Benjamin spake unto his people; yea, remember that there is no other way nor means whereby man can be saved, only through theatoning blood of Jesus Christ, who shall come; yea, remember that he cometh to redeem the world.
There is on other way then through the Savoir Jesus Christ, and He has named that way as BAPTISM.
Baptism is what we participate in order to truly follow the Savior Jesus Christ who is the Son of God.
I am so blessed because I have the opportunity to invite everyone and anyone who hasn't been baptized by the proper priesthood authority to be baptized.
I have seen countless lives changed as they have met us at that fork, chosen to be baptized and had their lives altered completely for better. Better in the sense that they have felt peace, happiness, joy, comfort, gained understand and come to better understand their relationship with God and His plan for them.
I am grateful also for the cleansing power that Baptism provides! It wipes away any and every sin. Alma 7
