27 And know ye that ye shall be judges of this people, according to the judgment which I shall give unto you, which shall be just. Therefore, what manner of men ought ye to be? Verily I say unto you, even as I am.
While all disciples of Jesus Christ strive to follow His example, it is doubly important for those who stand as His representatives. As Boyd K. Packer taught:
Priesthood is the authority and the power which God has granted to men on earth to act for Him. (See JST, Gen. 14:28–31.) When we exercise priesthood authority properly, we do what He would do if He were present (“What Every Elder Should Know–and Every Sister as Well: a Primer on Principles of Priesthood Government,” Ensign, February 1993)
Today, as I fulfill my priesthood responsibilities, I will strive to emulate the Savior. I will remember that I am doing His work, and I will strive to do what He would do it if He were here.
