Believe In Christ's Mercy

Do ye believe those scriptures
which have been written by them of old?

Behold, if ye do, ye must believe
what Zenos said; for, behold he said:
Thou hast turned away thy judgments
because of thy Son.

Because Of Jesus Christ

O God, thou hast been merciful unto me,
and heard my cries
in the midst of thy congregations.

And thou didst hear me because of
mine afflictions and my sincerity;
and it is because of thy Son
that thou hast been thus merciful unto me,
therefore I will cry unto thee in all mine afflictions,
for in thee is my joy; for thou hast
turned thy judgments away from me,
because of thy Son.

Our Joy Is In Jesus Christ

And the Lord provided for them;
yea, and he also gave them strength,
that they should suffer
no manner of afflictions,
save it were swallowed up
in the joy of Christ.
(Alma 31:38)

Bring Souls Unto Christ

O Lord, wilt thou grant unto us
that we may have success
in bringing them again
unto thee in Christ.
(Alma 31:34)

Comfort In Christ

O Lord, wilt thou comfort my soul,
and give unto me success,
and also my fellow laborers
who are with me—
yea, O Lord wilt thou
comfort their souls in Christ.
(Alma 31:32)

Consolation In Christ

O Lord, my heart is exceedingly sorrowful;
wilt thou comfort my soul in Christ.
(Alma 31:31)

Deny Not The Christ

Will ye deny again that there is a God,
and also deny the Christ?

For behold, I say unto you,
I know there is a God,
and also that Christ shall come.

And now what evidence have ye
that there is no God, or that Christ cometh not?

I say unto you that ye have none,
save it be your word only.

But, behold, I have all things as a testimony
that these things are true;
and ye also have all things as a testimony
unto you that they are true;
and will ye deny them?
(Alma 30:39-41)

Choose Ye This Day

And thus we see
the great reason of sorrow,
and also of rejoicing—
sorrow because of death
and destruction among men,
and joy because of
the light of Christ unto life.
(Alma 28:14)

Christ Has Won The Victory

They never did look upon death
with any degree of terror,
for their hope and views of Christ
and the resurrection;
therefore, death was swallowed up to them
by the victory of Christ over it.
(Alma 27:28)

Firm In The Faith Of Christ

And they were also distinguished
for their zeal towards God,
and also towards men;
for they were perfectly honest
and upright in all things;
and they were firm in the faith of Christ,
even unto the end.
(Alma 27:27)

Jesus Christ Is The Way

Notwithstanding the law of Moses,
they did look forward to the coming of Christ,
considering that the law of Moses
was a type of his coming, and believing that
they must keep those outward performances
until the time that he should be revealed unto them.

Now they did not suppose that salvation
came by the law of Moses; but the law of Moses
did serve to strengthen their faith in Christ;
and thus they did retain a hope through faith,
unto eternal salvation,
relying upon the spirit of prophecy,
which spake of those things to come.

Jesus Atoned For Our Sins

The blood of the Son of our great God,
shall be shed for the atonement of our sins.
(Alma 24:13)

Only In And Through Jesus Christ

And I also thank my God, yea, my great God,
that he hath forgiven us of those our many sins
and murders which we have committed,
and taken away the guilt from our hearts,
through the merits of his Son.
(Alma 24:10)

Redemption And Hope In Christ

And Aaron did expound unto him
the scriptures from the creation of Adam,
laying the fall of man before him, and their carnal state
and also the plan of redemption, which was prepared
from the foundation of the world, through Christ,
for all whosoever would believe on his name.

And since man had fallen he
could not merit anything of himself;
but the sufferings and death of Christ atone for their sins,
through faith and repentance, and so forth;
and that he breaketh the bands of death,
that the grave shall have no victory,
and that the sting of death should be
swallowed up in the hopes of glory.
(Alma 22:13-14)

Only In And Through Christ

Now Aaron began to open
the scriptures unto them
concerning the coming of Christ,
and also concerning
the resurrection of the dead,
and that there could be no
redemption for mankind
save it were through the death
and sufferings of Christ,
and the atonement of his blood.
(Alma 21:9)

Believe In Jesus

Believest thou that
the Son of God shall come
to redeem mankind from their sins?
(Alma 21:7)

Joy In Our Savior

She arose and stood upon her feet,
and cried with a loud voice, saying:
O blessed Jesus, who has
saved me from an awful hell!

And when she had said this,
she clasped her hands,
being filled with joy.
(Alma 19:29-30)

Jesus Is Our Redeemer

As sure as thou livest,
behold, I have seen my Redeemer;
and he shall come forth,
and be born of a woman,
and he shall redeem all mankind
who believe on his name.
(Alma 19:13)
