February 16, 2021 - Every single person

For many years I thought of the Savior's experience in the garden and on the cross as places where a large mass of sin was heaped upon Him. ... Instead of an impersonal mass of sin, there was a long line of people, as Jesus felt 'our infirmities' (Hebrews 4:15), '[bore] our griefs, ... carried our sorrows ... [and] was bruised for our iniquities' (Isaiah 53:4-5). The Atonement was an intimate, personal experience in which Jesus came to know how to help each of us.

Merrill J. Bateman, Conference Report


When I'm in pain, whether physically or emotionally, sometimes, but not every time, I think of what the Savior did for me personally. I have a hard time thinking of someone else, let alone the Savior, when I'm hurting. I usually focus on myself when I'm in pain and how I can remove that pain.



Jesus Christ did not focus on Himself when He was in pain. Think about that...He was still focused on me and you when He was in the most intense pain. And....I can barely handle my own pain and He took every single person's pain on Him; whether a person that has already lived, a person who now lives, and a person who will yet live...on this earth and every earth He created. Thats mind blowing!
