In these zone conferences President gives a talk about the atonement. He breaks it up into four parts. I really like the part where he talks about the atonement having an enabling power. He shares 3 Nephi 27:14
"And my Father sent me that I might be lifted up upon the cross; and after thatther, to stand I had been lifted up upon the cross, that I might draw all men unto me, that as I have been lifted up by men even so should men be lifted up by the Father before me, to be judged of their works, whether they be good or whether they be evil".
Christs atonement allows us to be lifted up to something we couldn't be on our own. Christ doesn't just want us to DO things, he wants us to BECOME something. But we can only acheive it through his atonement. Love you!!!
