February 5, 2022 - Antidote

[T]he Savior’s Atonement gives us life for death, “beauty for ashes,” healing for hurt, and perfection for weakness. It is heaven’s antidote to the obstacles and struggles of this world.

Tad R. Callister, "The Atonement of Jesus Christ", Ensign, May 2019


I've read somewhere that the antidote for fear, depression, anxiety, and anything that is disabling us emotionally or mentally, and of course spiritually, is Jesus Christ. If I'm feeling unmotivated, even depressed and fatigued, then Jesus Christ is the answer.


His Atonement doesn't just save us from the effects of physical and spiritual death, but it also saves us, temporally, from mental and emotional, and other struggles we face too. His saving and enabling power are needed.... completely necessary, to make it through this life. Without it, this life is meaningless and hopeless.


Christ is the Physician, the Therapist, the Counselor, the Confidant, the Advocate, the Savior of me and you. He is the remedy for what ails us physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. He is the antidote! Without Him, we hurt and suffer. Why go through that without Him?
