“Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.” —1 Peter 4:16
“For many, the call to be a Christian can seem demanding, even overwhelming. But we need not be afraid or feel inadequate. The Savior has promised that He will make us equal to His work. “Follow me,” He said, “and I will make you fishers of men.” As we follow Him, He blesses us with gifts, talents, and the strength to do His will, allowing us to go beyond our comfort zones and do things we’ve never before thought possible.” —Robert D. Hales
