Baptism is something we MUST do to follow the example of our Savior. It is the gate that we must enter through!
Last week we were privileged to be a part of two baptisms! Our whole purpose as missionaries is to invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and his Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end! What a wonderful experience! The President and I were able to find, teach and baptize a mother and her daughter. They were prepared to follow the example of our Savior.
He set the PERFECT example! The Book of Mormon says in verses 9-10: 9) "And again, it showeth unto the children of men the straitness of the path, and the narrowness of the gate, by which they should enter, he having set the example before them. 10) And he said unto the children of men: Follow thou me. Wherefore, my beloved brethren, can we follow Jesus save we shall be willing to keep the commandments of the Father?"
