Given that it was Easter Sunday and that I started rereading the book Believing Christ, I have been pondering the Atonement alot lately. I believe full heartedly that it is not enough to just believe in Christ, we must believe Christ. I believe in Christ with all my heart but I also believe that He atoned for our sins. I believe that the only way for us to reach perfection is to believe Christ when He tells us that He atoned for our sins and that through Him we can become perfect and live with our Heavenly Father and Christ again someday. I know that He died for me and each and everyone of us I know that I am a sinner, we all are. I know that it is not where we've been but it is where we are going that matters, we all make mistakes, some more than others and different than others. I know that if we just come to Him, He can make us perfect He died and suffered for all of our sins, we just have to believe Him. Try our best, and when we fall He will make up the difference. I do know that my life would suck if it weren't for Him. This life is a test and I will do my best to look at it like an optomist, cause it is too short not too. I know that through Christ I can return to live with Him and Heavenly Father. I highly recomend the book Believing Christ it helped me to better understand the Atonement and to realize that it is there for all of us. God loved us all so much that He sent His only Begotten Son to be our Savior and that Christ suffered for us. I probably repeated myself a bunch up here, but I do feel it is very important for each and everyone of us to believe Christ not just believe in Him.
