This Sunday my companions and I gave the Sunday School lesson to 150 missionaries - a little intimidating! It contained Abinadi's powerful message as he exhorted king Noah and his wicked priests to "remember that only in and through Christ ye can be saved". (Mosiah 16:13). His powerful witness of Christ's Atonement was so important to him that He sealed that witness with his death.
President Ezra Taft Benson said: "Christ changes men, and changed men can change the world. Men changed for Christ will be captained by Christ. … Men captained by Christ will be consumed in Christ. … Their will is swallowed up in His will. (See John 5:30.) They do always those things that please the Lord. (See John 8:29.) Not only would they die for the Lord, but more important they want to live for Him" (in Conference Report, Oct. 1985, 5–6; or Ensign, Nov. 1985, 6).
