'Men changed for Christ' follow him

At the October 1985 general conference, President Ezra Taft Benson said: "Men changed for Christ will be captained by Christ. Like Paul they will be asking, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?' (Acts 9:6.) Peter stated, they willfollow his steps.' (1 Pet. 2:21.) John said they will `walk, even as he walked.' " (1 John 2:6.)

President Benson added that those who are "captained by Christ will be consumed in Christ. To paraphrase President Harold B. Lee, they set fire in others because they are on fire.
