Alma 5:26-27 -- On Questions and Conviction

"And now behold, I say unto you, my brethren, if ye have experienced a change of heart, and if ye have felt to sing the song of redeeming love, I would ask, can ye feel so now?
Have ye walked, keeping yourselves blameless before God? Could ye say, if ye were called to die at this time, within yourselves, that ye have been sufficiently humble? That your garments have been cleansed and made white through the blood of Christ, who will come to redeem his people from their sins?"
Alma 5:26-27

These are good questions to ask ourselves every now and then.  Can we still feel the power of conversion and testimony in our lives?  Are we still changed by our relationship with God?  Do we still feel his love in our lives, for ourselves and for others?  Are we blameless?  Are we humble?  Are we clean?  Today, let's do an inventory of our lives, and if we've let some things slip, let's rededicate ourselves to God.  Let's build our relationships with him and learn more about his work.  Let's study and pray, and find that feeling again, of testimony, thankfulness, and love for God.
