“. . . we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities . . . ; Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
A modern day Apostle — in the perfect poetry of expression that was his gift — amplifies and personalizes Paul’s declaration.
Be lifted by Elder Neal A. Maxwell.
“Can we, even in the depths of disease, tell Him anything at all about suffering? In ways we cannot comprehend, our sicknesses and infirmities were borne by Him even before they were borne by us. The very weight of our combined sins caused Him to descend below all. We have never been, nor will we be, in depths such as He has known. Thus His atonement made perfect His empathy and His mercy and His capacity to succor, for which we can be everlastingly grateful as He tutors us in our trials.”
