How do we show that we believe in Christ? Christ is not with us on earth today and to have faith means to believe in something that you can't see. We also know that faith leads to action, because faith without works is dead. The way we show that we believe in Christ and are truly wanting to follow him is by Repentence. What does it mean to Repent? It simply means to change. We first need to admit that we have made a mistake and feel sorry for what we have done. Then we need to make it right and apologize, but that is not all after we have done that we need to do our best to not do it again. We need to constantly be repenting and changing. The next step in showing that we believe in Jesus Christ is to be baptized by proper authority. Jesus went to John the Baptist, because John had the proper priesthood authority. The only way for us to be able to enter into the presence of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ is to be baptized like Jesus was. Once we are baptized we have Priesthood holders lay their hands on our heads and give us the gift of the Holy Ghost. The gift of the Holy Ghost can bring us comfort, peace, help us make the right choices, and warn us of danger. Baptism and recieving the gift of the Holy Ghost is not the end, we need to Endure to the End. We need to strive to follow Christ until the end of our lives. I know that if we do we will be able to live with him again.
