The price of discipleship

April 18, 2008 at 12:30 am (Words of wisdom)

For most of us, however, what is required is not to die for the Church but to live for it. For many, living a Christlike life every day may be even more difficult than laying down one’s life….Many think that the price of discipleship is too costly and too burdensome. For some, it involves giving up too much. But the cross is not as heavy as it appears to be. Through obedience we acquire much greater strength to carry it.

(Emphasis in original.) By President James E. Faust (July 30, 1920 to August 10, 2007) in “Discipleship”, Ensign, November 2006, p. 22.
