Welcome to the weekly “Come, Follow Me” study guide. This guide is designed to assist you in your personal scripture study and reflection, helping you delve deeper into the teachings of Jesus Christ and apply them in your daily life. You’ll find scriptures to focus on and simple daily prompts to guide your study each week. By consistently following this guide, you can enhance your understanding of the gospel, strengthen your relationship with God, and experience personal growth and spiritual development. As we study “Come, Follow Me” at home, we invite the Spirit into our lives, receive personal revelation, and build a foundation of faith that sustains us through life’s challenges.

Introduction:

Welcome to this week’s “Come, Follow Me” study guide, where we embark on a transformative journey through the pages of the Book of Mormon, focusing on Alma chapters 8-12. These chapters provide a profound insight into the ministry of Alma the Younger, as he fervently teaches the people of Ammonihah about repentance and the imminent coming of Jesus Christ to redeem His people.

The theme guiding our exploration this week is “Jesus Christ Will Come to Redeem His People,” a theme that resonates deeply with the core principles of the gospel. As we immerse ourselves in the narratives and teachings presented in these chapters, we are invited to reflect on the significance of Christ’s redemptive mission and its implications for our lives today.

Alma’s experiences in Ammonihah serve as a poignant reminder of the Savior’s boundless love and mercy, even in the face of rejection and opposition. Through Alma’s unwavering faith and bold testimony, we witness the power of repentance and the transformative effect it can have on individuals and communities alike.

As we study Alma’s interactions with the people of Ammonihah, we are prompted to examine our own relationship with the Savior and assess our commitment to following His teachings. The message of redemption proclaimed by Alma is not confined to ancient times but speaks directly to our hearts and souls today, reminding us of the universal nature of Christ’s atonement and its ability to heal and uplift all who come unto Him.

Join us as we delve into the rich teachings and insights within these sacred scriptures, seeking to deepen our understanding of the Savior’s role as Redeemer and His sacrifice’s profound impact on our lives. Through diligent study and earnest prayer, may we come to know Him more fully and strive to emulate His love and compassion in all that we do.
