As part of His ministry among the people at Bountiful, Jesus declared, “ye know the things that ye must do in my church; for the works which ye have seen me do that shall ye also do.” This commandment suggests it is crucial for readers to do more than just understand the things Jesus taught; they must also pay careful attention to the things Jesus did. Recognizing what Jesus did can help explain why Latter-day Saints worship as they do. In all things, members of Christ’s church should seek to follow His example.
