This powerful chapter discusses two seemingly opposing eternal traits of God and how they intertwine to provide salvation for the children of God.
Alma teaches Corianton about the law of Restoration, how we will be restored to that which is natural to us and stand before Christ to be judged someday. What is natural to me?
Alma preaches about resurrection truths he has had revealed to him in this chapter. I’ve outlined nine truths about the resurrection. Study them, and answer the question: Am I prepared to stand before God in a resurrected body to be judged of my works in this life?
This begins Alma’s talk to his son, Corianton, who had grievously sinned. Alma’s message to him is to repent…and be saved. There is hope for even the vilest sinner. How do I secure that hope in my own life?
Alma talks to his son, Helaman, and gives him three principles to do to stay converted unto the Lord. How are you doing with these three principles in your own life?
In this second half of Amulek’s speech, he talks about the fruits of repentance. Which of these do you already have? Are you seeking the Spirit with you to help you bear good fruit, not bad fruit?
Amulek takes a turn teaching the Zoramites, and he gives them the tools of repentance and prayer to help them nourish and strengthen the seed Alma has taught them to plant in their hearts. Do I use these tools?
In Chap 20, Lamoni’s father, the main king, is willing to give up half his kingdom for his life when Ammon has him down by the sword. But in this chapter, he is willing to give up ALL he has–his sins, his kingdom, everything–for something else.
Zeezrom, who had been trying to catch Alma and Amulek in their words, now has had his heart pricked and is listening. Alma bears testimony of the plan of redemption in this chapter. Do I understand and take full advantage of this plan in my life?
God always gives people many warnings before He exercises His wrath upon them. Are we listening to these? Are we heeding the calls of modern day prophets?
