To take on His image, I must have faith (Alma 5:15). I must have a pure heart and clean hands (Alma 5:19). I must repent (Alma 5:26). I need to be humble (Alma 5:27). I must be stripped of pride (Alma 5:28). I must be stripped of envy (Alma 5:29). I must bring forth works of righteousness (Alma 5:36). I must hearken unto the voice of the Lord (Alma 5:38). I must not withhold my substance from the poor and the needy (Alma 5:55).
This is another one of my favorite scriptures:
“And now behold, I ask of you, my brethren of the church, have ye spiritually been born of God? Have ye received his image in your countenances? Have ye experienced this mighty change in your hearts?” (Alma 5:14)
This is what I previously wrote after reading Alma 5: Remembering Those Who Were Saved From Bondage
