Feed My Sheep
Alma 17-22 | June 22-28
Ammon’s deep conversion to the gospel gave him a desire to teach those who many thought were unteachable – the Lamanites. We can learn many things about sharing the gospel from Ammon’s example. Ammon first gained the trust of King Lamoni by being his servant. When King Lamoni asked questions, Ammon began teaching him by finding common ground. King Lamoni knew about the Great Spirit. Ammon explained that the Great Spirit is God. Ammon then taught a simple lesson on the plan of salvation, explaining that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ we can be redeemed. King Lamoni was so overwhelmed with the Spirit that he fell to the ground.
When we share the gospel with others, we can be a true friend, answer sincere questions, find common ground, and stick with the basics. The Spirit can then testify of the truthfulness of the gospel.
