Moroni 4

When members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints partake of the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper every week it reminds us of the covenants we made at baptism.  There we covenanted 1) to take upon us the name of Christ, which is designed to help us to act better, 2) to always remember Him, which helps us to appreciate all He has done and continues to do for us, and 3) to always keep His commandments, which helps us to stay clean and to build the kingdom of God on earth.  Heavenly Father’s part of the baptismal covenant is to give us the Holy Ghost to always be with us, if we keep our part of the covenant.  Having the influence of this Heavenly Guide is invaluable to our day to day existence.  If you pay attention to the sacrament prayers, you can hear all these parts of the baptismal covenant during the blessing of the bread.
