Today's Spiritual Message: Jesus Christ Is the Way

I hope you enjoy this message about a woman who felt like her life was irretrievably lost, until she began to feel and apply the healing and enabling power of the atonement of Jesus Christ.

Also, for those who want to understand what members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints think about "grace," I strongly suggest watching this message ("devotional"), given by Brad Wilcox, called "His Grace Is Sufficient."  I just watched it for the first time, this afternoon, and I really loved it.

The essential takeaway is Christ paid all of our debt to justice and his conditions of repentance are given to help change us to become like Him, rather than to repay Him for our sins (which would be impossible).
Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the power of God.  Moroni 10:32 (emphasis added).
