John the Baptist magnified his calling in the Aaronic Priesthood. He taught the preparatory gospel and baptized the Savior by virtue of his priesthood authority. He prepared people to receive the teachings and the authority of the Savior. He magnified his calling and fulfilled his mission so well that Jesus said, "There is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist." (Luke 7:28.)

In our day, when a young man magnifies his callings in the Aaronic Priesthood he prepares himself for the Melchizedek Priesthood. Quorum instruction and activities should teach a young man how to magnify his callings in the Aaronic Priesthood.
