What a thrilling thing it is, my dear brothers and sisters who are fellow members of the kingdom of God, to be entrusted by the Lord to serve as messengers of His word to our brothers and sisters who are not members of the Church. Let us assume for some moment that the roles were reversed–that you were not a member of the Church but that your present non-member neighbor was a Latter-day Saint. Would you want him or her to share the gospel with you? Would you rejoice in the new truths you had learned? Would your love and respect increase for your neighbor who had shared these truths with you? Of course, the answer to all of these questions would be: Yes!
