23 And it came to pass after they had fasted and prayed for the space of atwo days and two nights, the limbs of Alma received their strength, and he stood up and began to speak unto them, bidding them to be of good comfort:
24 For, said he, I have repented of my sins, and have been aredeemed of the Lord; behold I am born of the Spirit.
26 And thus they become new creatures; and unless they do this, they can in anowise inherit the kingdom of God.
Conversion includes a change in behavior, but it goes beyond behavior; it is a change in our very nature. This kind of experience doesn't happen often. Most of the time conversion is a process that happens over time. When we come to understand the atonement of Christ and truly want to help others, then we are converted just like Alma. After we have been converted we need to strive to do our best to live the way we need to, so that we can have eternal life.
