Applying the Atonement in Everyday Life The Atonement of Jesus Christ is the most important event that ever has or ever will occur at any time or in any place in our universe. It is a gift not only for our last breath and the last day of our lives, but it is also for every day of our lives and every breath of our lives. For it is during the hours of our everyday lives that we work out our salvation, usually unobserved by others, sometimes feeling alone, and often feeling opposed. Though commonly mentioned in the Church, the Atonement of Christ is frequently misunderstood by many of the Saints. It is often viewed as a tool that is only to be employed when dramatic sins are committed. However, the Atonement is something that should be a part of every facet of our livesΓÇöin both joyful periods and challenging times. Drawing on his personal experience as a husband and bishop, David Vandagriff has written I Need Thee Every Hour to help readers see how the Atonement can encourage us and improve our lives as we realize the enormity of the SaviorΓÇÖs sacrifice and how far it extends. Using real-life stories, each individual chapter discusses how the Atonement relates to different areas of daily lifeΓÇöincluding death, prosperity, trials, service, and undeserved sufferingΓÇöto show how the Atonement is the foundation of all hope and the proof of a loving God.
