Ammon, a Nephite missionary, teaches that God created men and women in His image.
“…Man in the beginning was created after the image of God.” (Alma 18:34)
-How can a person make his or her spiritual posture a reflection of being made in the image of God?
-Is it possible to stand as tall, spiritually speaking, as God wants us to if we don’t internalize this gospel truth?
-Do many aspects of physical and mental health emanate from spiritual health?
After passing through a terrible spiritual ordeal because of his sins (see Alma 38:7-8), and then finding redemption through Christ, Alma the Younger (referring to Christ) declares the following:
“…He remembereth every creature of his creating.” (Mosiah 27:30)
-Do you believe that God is aware of you personally?
-Do you believe that He yearns for your eternal welfare?
-How precious is a human soul to God? -How grateful was Alma that Christ remembered him (see Mosiah 27:27-30)?
The Book of Mormon testifies (through the teachings of the prophet Jacob) that God created the earth and the life upon it by the power of His word.
“…By the power of his word man came upon the face of the earth, which earth was created by the power of his word.” (Jacob 4:9)
-How many see the earth and the life on it as a creation of God?
-Does the fact that it is a fallen creation (including the people of the earth) cause some to feel that God is distant or doesn’t exist?
