The atonement was an intimate, personal experience in which Jesus came to know how to help each of us.


Through service to others, we develop a Christlike love and we experience joy.

Service teaches patience and long-suffering as well as gentleness, goodness, and faith.


In becoming a whole person, the grateful leper was healed inside as well as on the outside. That day nine lepers were healed skin deep, but only one had the faith to be made whole. The tenth leper [was] changed eternally by [his] faith in the Savior and the healing power of his atonement.


The Savior's atonement...is intimate as well as infinite.
