We must choose whom to follow.
“Let us remember that there is an adversary who personally seeks to disrupt the work of the Lord. We must choose whom to follow. Our protection is as simple as deciding individually to follow the Savior, making certain that we faithfully will remain on His side.
“In the New Testament, John records that there were some who were unable to commit to the Savior and His teachings, and ‘from that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.
“‘Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
“‘Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.
“‘And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God’ (John 6:66–69).
“Peter had gained that which can be learned by each follower of the Savior. To be faithfully devoted to Jesus Christ, we accept Him as our Redeemer and do all within our power to live His teachings.”
