Be an example, "keep lights aflame", President Monsons says

President Thomas S. Monson, President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, spoke at BYU's Marriott Center on Tuesday 1 November 2011.  Among the many things he said, he encouraged all to be better examples.  He said, speaking of a personal testimony of the Gospel, "Such knowledge, such a personal testimony, is essential if we are to safely navigate the sometimes treacherous paths through life, with the adversary attempting to deceive us at every turn. . . . As you keep the flame of testimony burning brightly, you will become a beacon of righteousness - even a light - for all to see" ("Pres. Monson says 'Keep lights aflame'", Deseret News, Wednesday 2 November 2011, B3).  Speaking of Jesus Christ, the President said, "He is our Savior and our Redeemer, our Advocate with the Father.  He is our Exemplar and our strength.  He is the light that shineth in darkness.  That each of us here today may pledge to follow Him and to be His lights among men is my prayer" (Ibid.)

I know also that Jesus Christ is the Lord God of Israel and my Savior.  I know President Monson is a true Prophet and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true Church acknowledged of God.  In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
