192: Covenant, Surrender, and Deliverance (BoM Gospel Doctrine Lesson 19)

“None Could Deliver Them but the Lord”


This reading is a study in contrasts–covenantal cooperation vs. exploitation, desperate vengeance vs. trusting submission. Alma’s baptismal covenants teach us to bear each other’s burdens, mourn with those that mourn, and comfort those in need of comfort. The contrasting stories of the enslavement of Limhi and Alma’s people bring up poignant insights about the cost of surrender, but also bear the promise that God strengthens us in our trials.
