Book of Mormon Come Follow Me FHE Lesson – Be Reconciled unto God through the Atonement of Christ

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

Though Jacob needed to call his people to repentance for their sins, the heart of his message was one of reconciliation and joy. This Book of Mormon FHE lesson teaches about how we are brought back to the presence of God because of Jesus Christ. Our FHE lessons include three lesson plans for different ages, treat recipes, activity ideas, and more.

Scripture

Jacob 4:11

Wherefore, beloved brethren, be reconciled unto him through the atonement of Christ, his Only Begotten Son, and ye may obtain a resurrection, according to the power of the resurrection which is in Christ, and be presented as the first-fruits of Christ unto God, having faith, and obtained a good hope of glory in him before he manifesteth himself in the flesh.

Hymn

Where Can I Turn for Peace? | Hymn #129

1. Where can I turn for peace?
Where is my solace
When other sources cease to make me whole?
When with a wounded heart, anger, or malice,
I draw myself apart,
Searching my soul?

2. Where, when my aching grows,
Where, when I languish,
Where, in my need to know, where can I run?
Where is the quiet hand to calm my anguish?
Who, who can understand?
He, only One.

3. He answers privately,
Reaches my reaching
In my Gethsemane, Savior and Friend.
Gentle the peace he finds for my beseeching.
Constant he is and kind,
Love without end.

Lesson

FOR CHILDREN

Before the lesson begins, choose someone your children are close to who lives far away. It can be a grandparent, an aunt or uncle, a sibling on a mission, or a friend they’ve moved away from.

Begin the lesson with a discussion on how they feel when they are separated from that person. Then, discuss how they feel when they get to see that person again.

Read aloud: Right now, we are separated from God. He wants to bring us home again so we can be joyful. But He knows we sin and make mistakes. We need to be clean to live with God, so He sent His son Jesus Christ. Because of Jesus, we can go back to be with God.

Ask: How does Jesus help us live with God again? [forgives our sins, teaches us truth, shows us the way back]

Read aloud: Sometimes, it feels hard to go to Jesus for help. When we make a mistake, we feel bad and guilty. But remember how good it feels to see someone again after a long time? We need to have faith Jesus is so excited and happy to help us.

Ask: How can we have faith and ask Jesus for help?

Finish the lesson by sharing a personal experience when you need to go to Christ for help and how you felt afterward. If fitting for your family, have children share their experiences. Finish with your testimony.

FOR TEENS & ADULTS

Begin the lesson by watching this video on the dangers of pride

Ask: Why do you think pride is dangerous?

Scripture: Read Jacob 2:12–21 aloud

Ask: What does pride look like today?

Read: Pride can manifest itself in various ways. It’s crucial to recognize pride in ourselves and learn how to be humble. 

Ask: How can we choose to be humble? 

Share: Tell of an experience when you had to be humble. 

Ask: Why is it important that we avoid being prideful? 

Testimony: Close the lesson with your testimony.

FOR SINGLE STUDY

Read through Jacob 4. Note all of the blessings that come from following Jesus Christ. Write down a list of things that are holding you back from accepting the grace of Christ in your life. Make a plan to work on overcoming those things in the following week.
