The Power of the Priesthood
Right now I want you to imagine if you were driving and all of a sudden some random person pulls you over and asks you for 100 dollars because you were speeding. What's your reaction going to be? Would you give them the 100 dollar bill? No........ But now imagine if it was a cop. You would then give it to him because he had the Authority, no? This plays in the rule of the Priesthood. A man can receive the Priesthood Authority by one who has the Authority...
Upon you my fellow servants, in the name of Messiah I confer the Priesthood of Aaron, which holds the keys of the ministering of angels, and of the gospel of repentance, and of baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; and this shall never be taken again from the earth, until the sons of Levi do offer again an offering unto the Lord in righteousness.
and in order for a policeman to wear a uniform, he has to go through many tests and obey the law. In order to receive the priesthood authority, you have to exercise worthiness, love, patience, and obedience. So what's so amazing to have this authority? Well the cop receives authority form the head chief, but the priesthood power authority comes from God.
Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
