Kyle Williams, the Facilities Management operations director, addressed students on July 5 about how they can become disciples of Jesus Christ.
Williams said all students at BYU-Idaho can become disciples of Christ by becoming high-yield, low-maintenance members of the Church and of the community.
“We need to know how to listen and how to respond to the Spirit,” Williams said. “We should become light emitting people.”
He said students can be a gift to those around them in several ways.
“We must always be worthy,” Williams said. “People can receive blessings through your worthiness.”
Williams said to stay plugged into the gospel, similar to the way light bulbs stay lit, students must continue to read scriptures, pray and attend church regularly.
“Christ’s disciples are simple people who can recognize truth when they hear it or see it,” he said.
Williams said students should never turn down an opportunity to serve.
He said students must also learn how to work and work well.
“Be self-reliant,” Williams said. “Being self-reliant will enable you to serve others better.”
He said students should be diligent.
Williams said students should gain a skill that is valuable for the workforce.
