What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ?

The Atonement is the sacrifice Jesus Christ made to help us overcome sin, adversity, and death. Jesus's atoning sacrifice took place in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the cross at Calvary. He paid the price for our sins, took upon himself death and was resurrected. The atonement is the supreme expression of the love of our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.

  1. I know that Jesus Christ truly did this for me personally, and for every other person who has ever lived or who will live collectively. This is the supreme act of love for all mankind. His life is a legacy. I am forever grateful for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

  2. As humans, we do not have the power to overcome sin or physical death, both keep us from returning to live with God. Christ, in a way we can't fully understand overcame those two things for us through the atonement. We can, through making covenants and being faithful take advantage of this gift and return to live with God. This makes Christ the focus to every thing we want to become, and eternally in debt to him. Without him, we would live in total despair. I am so thankful for this gift, and for the knowledge of how to apply it to my life. It is the center of everything I believe and gives eternal perspective to everything I do.

  3. Without the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, any hope would be in vain. There would be nothing to look forward to in the next life because at that point, it would be time to pay the price of our own sins, suffering evermore. Thankfully, we do not have to contemplate such a bitter existence, because there is a way out. All we have to do is be grateful for His sacrifice, showing our gratitude by repenting of our sins, which sins He has suffered for in behalf of us. He is our escape, our key to happiness, even eternal happiness. I know this is true, and I am determined to live up to this knowledge, and to share it with others always and forever.

  4. What an amazing thing to realize that Jesus Christ paid the ultimate price for me. And it's not just my sins, the Atonement helps me overcome my weaknesses and lifts me when I'm feeling sad. Jesus Christ is there for me, always. He knows how I'm feeling because He felt those feeling Himself. Whenever I have the thought that I'm all alone, He is there. He understands me. For that I'm eternally grateful!

    1. That comforts me so much to know that Christ also died for our sorrows as well as our sins. It's so reassuring when I feel alone too to know that Christ is always there.
