Ever heard of the “covenant path”?

Let’s look at what that means.

You might have heard leaders talk about the “covenant path” before. Here’s what that means!

  • A “covenant” is a sacred promise between us and God. He sets the terms of the agreement and blesses us if we are faithful.
  • A “path” can mean a physical walkway, but that’s not what we’re talking about here. This path refers to the collection of ordinances that mark the way for us to return to Heavenly Father. These sacred acts are performed by the authority of the priesthood and are scattered throughout our lifetime.

So what does “covenant path” mean? It means that our promises, paired with priesthood power, bring us back to Heavenly Father. The path includes:

  • Being baptized.
  • Receiving the Holy Ghost.
  • Going through the temple.
  • Being sealed in marriage.

It’s important to remember that it’s a path, not a race! Not everyone will reach these sacred milestones at the same time. Some people may reach certain milestones after this life.

As you continue your life’s journey today, remember that Jesus Christ is walking with you. He loves you! We do not walk this path alone.
