Faith is the basic building block of our spiritual life. A strong faith in Jesus Christ is vital to our survival as disciples of Jesus Christ. The first step to a strong faith in Jesus Christ is “planting” the seed of faith (Alma 32:36). Many of us grew up sing the song “Faith” which contains this line:
“Faith is like a little seed: If planted, it will grow.”
~Beatrice Goff Jackson
When I was a missionary serving in New England, our goal was to help others plant the seed of faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement. Our meetings would often focus on strengthening our faith so that we could help others plant their seed of faith. When it comes to faith in Jesus Christ the prophet and apostles are especial witnesses of Jesus Christ, so I started searching for quotes from them on faith. Here are the some of my favorite quotes I’ve found from the prophets and apostles.
Faith in the Savior.
Faith in the Savior taught me that no matter what happened in the past, my story could have a happy ending.
~President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Protect your Faith.
We can do everything with Faith.
There is no obstacle too great, no challenge too difficult, that we cannot meet with faith.
~President Gordon B. Hinckley
Faith is a Choice
My dear friends, your faith did not begin at birth, and it will not end at death. Faith is a choice. Strengthen your faith, and live to be deserving of the Savior’s approving words: “Great is thy faith.” As you do, I promise you that your faith, through the grace of Jesus Christ, will one day allow you to stand with those you love, clean and pure in the presence of God.”
~Elder Neil L. Andersen
