Alma 5-7: “Have Ye Experienced This Mighty Change in Your Hearts?” (June 1-7)


After Alma experienced the joy of being born of God, he worked hard to help other people experience that same joy (Alma 36:23-24). In his sermons to the cities of Zarahemla and Gideon, he emphasized the importance of turning to the Savior and being born again (Alma 5:49, Alma 7:14). Many of the people in Zarahemla were in a state of unbelief and were lifted up in pride (Alma 7:6). In contrast, the people of Gideon were generally walking “in the paths of righteousness” (Alma 7:19). But his core message to both groups was the same: We all need to repent. We all need to be changed by God.

Here are my summaries of the sermons he preached in those two cities, with my takeaways from those sermons:

  1. Alma’s Sermon in Zarahemla Alma 5
  2. Alma’s Sermon in Gideon – Alma 7

Here are some posts about key themes in these sermons:
