Elder Lawrence E. Corbridge

Quorums of the Seventy

"Jesus Christ is the Way. He is Light and Life, Bread and Water, the Beginning and the End, the Resurrection and the Life, the Savior of the world, the Truth and the Way."

There is only one way to happiness and fulfillment, and Jesus is that way.

"Every other way, any other way, whatever other way is madness."

"He offers a well of living water. Either we drink and never thirst more, or don't and foolishly remain thirsty. He is the Bread of Life. Either we eat and hunger no more, or we don't and foolishly remain weak and hungry still."

Everything depends on Christ's atonement for sin and on getting and keeping the power of the Holy Ghost.

The Lord said to follow him and to be like him.

"We might mistakenly believe that we can't really follow him because the standard of his life is so astonishingly high as to appear unreachable. We might think it is too hard, too high, too much and beyond our capacity, at least for now. Don't believe that."

"The Lord's way is not hard. Life is hard, not the gospel."

Latter-day Saints have two choices: Follow the Lord and be endowed with his power or go some other way alone without his support and be in despair.

"Life is hard, but life is simple. Get on the path and never, ever, give up."
