“Have Ye Experienced This Mighty Change in Your Hearts?”

by Scott Hansen

Come, Follow Me

The word “heart” is used in multiple different ways throughout the scriptures. It can refer to a location for receiving revelation, the center of a people’s values, or a person’s spiritual core. In this week’s Come, Follow Me lesson, it represents a tool for deep reflection.

"They Were Steadfast and Immovable”

by Michelle Pack

Come, Follow Me

When Alma’s people began to “wax proud” (Alma 4:6), he was saddened. “There began to be great contentions among the people” (Alma 4:9), and the wickedness of the members of the Church had become a “great stumbling block to those who did not belong to the church” (Alma 4:10).

Asking Big Questions: How Can I Know If I’ve Been Forgiven?

by Kamryn Maughan

Big Questions

Going to the Savior, Peter asked, “How oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Till seven times?” Jesus responded, “I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven” (Matthew 18:21–22). Just as we are commanded to forgive others, our merciful Heavenly Father promises to forgive us. Although we may understand this promise, it can be difficult to know if we’ve been forgiven. Three actions can help us feel God’s forgiveness: repenting, recognizing the Spirit, and reflecting on Jesus Christ. 

Repentance: A Change of Heart

by Aubrey Barzee

Come, Follow Me

The time that we spend partaking of the sacrament is one of the most important moments of the week. Taking the sacrament is a crucial step in renewing our baptismal and temple covenants, bringing an offering of ourselves, our wills, and our weaknesses and leaving it at the Savior’s feet. 

"We Have Entered into a Covenant with Him"

by Lyndie Jackson

Come, Follow Me

After Alma taught the people near the Waters of Mormon, they wanted so badly to enter into a covenant relationship with God that “they clapped their hands for joy, and exclaimed: This is the desire of our hearts” (Mosiah 18:11). They knew that making covenants would lead to their eternal happiness and exaltation if they were faithful. 

“A Light . . . That Can Never Be Darkened”

Come, Follow Me

The Book of Mormon prophet Abinadi had a tough audience. Because of their wicked and self-righteous ideologies, the priests of King Noah’s court had no intention of listening to his warnings and counsel. 

“In the Strength of the Lord”

by Kamryn Maughan

Come, Follow Me

Each of us faces trials that can feel overwhelming and at times too heavy to bear. But with the Lord’s strength, we can accomplish anything He needs us to. This week in Come, Follow Me, we learn that Zeniff and his people fought “in the strength of the Lord” (Mosiah 9:17). On the other hand, the Lamanites “knew nothing concerning the Lord” and “depended upon their own strength” (Mosiah 10:11).
