The Atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ is the heart and core and center of revealed religion.

Elder Bruce R. McConkie Christ and the Creation

I think we must never lose sight of our Father’s transcendent declaration: “For behold, this is my work and my glory-to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man” (Moses 1:39).

When all is said and done, this is the purpose of our being, to assist our Father in the accomplishment of His work and His glory. For this reason He sent His Son into the world to take upon himself the sins of the world, to offer his life in a wondrous atonement for those sins, to suffer and die upon the cross in a supreme sacrifice for the blessing of all mankind, to come forth triumphant from the tomb as the master of life and death, of mortality and immortality.
