Often our experiences during the sacrament service seem quite ordinary. However, partaking of the sacrament is one of the most important and sacred ordinances in which we can participate. Even though the weekly ritual is simple and without ostentation, usually administered by teenage priesthood holders, the sacrament is a powerful light pointing us to a bright and exciting future; an invitation to once again come unto Christ through the sin-remitting, soul-transforming power that can come when we “eat and drink of the bread and the waters of life freely.” The moments we spend with Him each week in the spirit of repentance and recommitment can bring consolation, encouragement, forgiveness, and hope.
In this inspiring book, respected LDS authors give their thoughts on how we can get more from the sacrament, and how by partaking of these sacred emblems we witness our willingness to take upon ourselves His name, promising to “always remember him and keep his commandments. . . that [we] may always have His spirit to be with [us]” (D&C 20:77–79).
