"... we may struggle with doubts about whether we have done enough or whether we are good enough, and we may be weighed down with self-perceived spiritual failure. Even amidst the joys of life, there are times when we may despair over the weakness in ourselves and in those we love, sensing the horribly wide gulf between us and the Father of our spirits. At these times, we wish, hope, and pray that relief-- real relief-- could miraculously be just a step away. It is. Scripture and modern prophets both affirm that Christ's atoning sacrifice provides the justification through which our sins can immediately be pardoned or forgiven. The Atonement also unlocks the door to sanctification, a holy state of being in which we lose the desire to sin"--Container.
