The Atonement is central to everything we teach as missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Without It nothing would be possible. It truly is by His grace that we are saved through faith. Our Savior suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane for our sins and again on the cross. By His miraculous power we can be cleansed from our sins. As Alma prophesied Christ really did, "take upon him the pains and the sicknesses of his people."1
I am grateful for the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I am grateful that I can have peace through repentance and being cleansed from sin.
