I found this while studying this morning…it simply brings a peace, a joy and a humility that are priceless.
From James E. Faust:
“The Atonement advances our mortal course of learning by making it possible for our natures to become perfect…
“…Any increase in our understanding of His atoning sacrifice draws us closer to Him. Literally, the Atonement means to be ‘at one’ with Him.
“…We long for the ultimate blessing of the Atonement – to become one with Him, to be in His divine presence, to be called individually by name as He warmly welcomes us home with a radiant smile, beckoning us with open arms to be enfolded in His boundless love. How gloriously sublime this experience will be if we can feel worthy enough to be in His presence.
“…The overwhelming message of the Atonement is the perfect love the Savior has for each and all of us. It is a love which is full of mercy, patience, grace, equity, long-suffering, and above all, forgiving.”
