Episode 23 We Have Entered into a Covenant with Him (Part 2)

May 11–17

Mosiah 18–24

We Have Entered into a Covenant with Him

The account of Alma and his people in Mosiah 18; 23–24 shows what it means to “come into the fold of God” (Mosiah 18:8). When they were baptized, they made a covenant with God to “serve him and keep his commandments” (Mosiah 18:10). While this was an intensely personal commitment, it also had to do with how they treated one another. Yes, the journey back to Heavenly Father is personal and individual, and no one can keep our covenants for us, but that doesn’t mean we are alone. We need each other. As members of Christ’s eChurch, we covenant to serve God by helping and serving one another along the way, “bear[ing] one another’s burdens” (Mosiah 18:8–10). Alma’s people definitely had burdens to bear, just as we all do. And one way the Lord helps us “bear up [our] burdens with ease” (Mosiah 24:15) is by giving us a community of Saints who have promised to mourn with us and comfort us, just as we have promised to do for them.
