Ezra Taft Benson: "Being Christian"

“Men captained by Christ will be consumed in Christ. To paraphrase President HaroldB. Lee, they set fire in others because they are on fire. (See Stand Ye in Holy Places [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1974], p.192.)

“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.

“Enter their homes, and the pictures on their walls, the books on their shelves, the music in the air, their words and acts reveal them as Christians.

“They stand as witnesses of God at all times, and in all things, and in all places. (See Mosiah 18:9 .)” (in Conference Report, Oct. 1985, 6; or Ensign, Nov. 1985, 6–7 ).
