We may not know, we cannot tell,
What pains he had to bear,
But we believe it was for us
He hung and suffered there.
Ponder what the Savior means to all humanity—
and to you personally.
And then share the good news.
Hear the Lord say,
“Behold, he who has repented of his sins, the same is forgiven, and I, the Lord, remember them no more.”
It was through reading the scriptures, and listening, that I could understand, at least in part, the power of the Atonement. Can you imagine how I felt when finally I could see that if I followed whatever conditions the Redeemer had set, I need never endure the agony of being spiritually unclean? Imagine the consoling, liberating, exalting feeling that will come to you when you see the reality of the Atonement and the practical everyday value of it to you individually.
You need not know everything before the power of the Atonement will work for you.
Have faith in Christ; it begins to work the day you ask!
What is the Atonement?
As used in the scriptures, to atone is to suffer the penalty for sins, thereby removing the effects of sin from the repentant sinner and allowing him or her to be reconciled to God. Jesus Christ was the only one capable of carrying out the Atonement for all mankind. Because of His Atonement, all people will be resurrected, and those who obey His gospel will receive the gift of eternal life with God.
It is a fundamental truth that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ we can be cleansed.
We can become virtuous and pure.
