Thousands of Lamanites (and one Amalekite) were converted to the Lord through the preaching and teaching of Ammon and his brethren. And we are told that “as many as believed never did fall away” (see verses 5 -6). One key to their ability to remain faithful is found in verse 7 where it says “they did lay down the weapons of their rebellion that they did not fight against God anymore.” This is referring specifically to these warriors’ swords that they buried deep in the earth so as not to offend God further by shedding further blood. What are the weapons of our rebellion that cause us to fight, not only against each other, but against God? Are we willing to lay down our weapons to get closer to Him?
