A Change of Heart

From “Experiencing a Change of Heart” by Elder Edward Dube of the Seventy 


Elder Edward Dube of the Seventy shares the story of Alma, priest of wicked King Noah, who experienced a change of heart when he felt the love of the Savior extended to him through the Lord’s prophet Abinadi.

Elder Dube testifies that we can experience a change of heart just like Alma. Here are four ways we can take the gospel into our hearts and experience a change of heart on an ongoing basis:

  1. When faced with a decision, ask, “Does this decision help me to feel that my ‘works have been the works of righteousness’ (Alma 5:16), and does it still make me feel ‘to sing the song of redeeming love’?” (Alma 5:26).
  2. Move away from our comfort zones, as did Alma, who fled from the servants of King Noah and taught the gospel in very difficult circumstances.
  3. Think of others and “join in fasting and mighty prayer in behalf of the welfare of the souls of those who [know] not God” (Alma 6:6).
  4. Trust and serve the Lord. “He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it” (Matthew 10:39).

“We find joy in the consistent effort of experiencing a change of heart as we embrace the Atonement of Jesus Christ in our lives.”
