The Atonement and Our lives!!!
One of the greatest things that Christ did while he was on the earth, was perform the atonement. The atonement is made up of three parts. The 1st is when he suffered and bled from every pore in Gethsemane for our sins. This act enables us to repent when we make a mistake and become clean, so that we can live with him and Heavenly Father forever after we die. The 2nd part of the atonement was that he died on the cross. The 3rd and final part of the atonement is tht he was resurrected three days after he died on the cross. This is important, because it showed that he could overcome death, and because he could overcome death we would be resurrected when he comes again. This is something that has helped me so much in my life. It has also given me hope for a better world to come. I know that the atonement is real. Christ did really come and do all that, because he loves us and wants us to return to him. My prayer is that we all come to a knowledge of the importance of the atonement in our own lives, so that we all can strive to return home to his presence.
