To offset Chapter 2’s formula for failure, Chapter 3 gives us a formula for success! Again, the Gadianton Robbers can be representative of the adversary. The success formula is this: 1) Call upon the Lord for strength, 2) Gather or join with good friends, 3) Fortify ourselves by living the commandments, and 4) Guard against attack by not getting distracted by things that lead us away from the Lord. It worked for the faithful Nephites and Lamanites. It will work for us as well: Pray, Gather, Fortify and Guard.
