decide early to exercise faith

“It will take unshakable faith in the Lord Jesus Christ to choose the way to eternal life. … It is by acting on that faith we build the strength to do the will of God. And it is by exercising that faith in Jesus Christ that we can resist temptation and gain forgiveness through the Atonement. …

“The best time to resist temptation is early. The best time to repent is now. The enemy of our souls will place thoughts in our minds to tempt us. We can decide early to exercise faith, to cast out evil thoughts before we act on them.”
President Henry B. Eyring
