    Our Savior’s Atonement

    The Good Samaritan

    The Good Samaritan, by Walter Rane

    “Our Savior’s Atonement does more than assure us of immortality by a universal resurrection and give us the opportunity for us to be cleansed from sin by repentance and baptism. His Atonement also provides the opportunity to call upon Him who has experienced all of our mortal infirmities to give us the strength to bear the burdens of mortality. He knows of our anguish, and He is there for us. Like the good Samaritan, when He finds us wounded at the wayside, He will bind up our wounds and care for us (see Luke 10:34). The healing and strengthening power of Jesus Christ and His Atonement is for all of us who will ask.”

    Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, “Strengthened by the Atonement of Jesus Christ,” Liahona, Nov. 2015, 64.
