As Latter-day Saints, we sing and speak of the redeeming love of Jesus Christ, but do we take those words of praise and worship to heart? In whom do we really trust? Upon whom do we really rely? What does it mean to us today to have saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ?
The answers clarify our need for a Savior and the implications of Christ's sacrifice for us — and what we can do to make his atonement work in our lives. Author Robert L. Millet points out, "We have an obligation to cooperate with God in the salvation of our souls. While the ultimate power of change is in Christ, we can do our part and choose to be changed."
In this inspirational volume, Brother Millet shows us the fine harmony that exists between grace and works in the doctrines of salvation taught by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He explains how obeying the commandments, partaking of the ordinances of the gospel, and serving our fellow beings — in short, our works — resonate with Christ's mercy and grace in our lives. After All We Can Do: Grace Works goes beyond explaining the reasons for our words of praise about our Savior. This inspiring book shows how each of us may bring the sweet strains of salvation into our own lives — how we may allow Christ's atonement to purify, strengthen, and empower us as we strive to overcome our individual sins and mortal limitations.
Are We There Yet?
Do you ever feel as if your two steps forward result in one step back? As Latter-day Saints, we are actively engaged in building the kingdom of God. But because we have been called to the high standard of perfection and commissioned to pattern our lives after Jesus, we are frequently more aware of our shortcomings than of our progress. Sometimes we even question our standing before God or doubt our capacity to fulfill our mission here on earth and quality for eternal life hereafter. Yet, as author Robert L. Millet shows us in this inspirational book, we can find peace and hope here and now, even though we sometimes fall short of the ideal. We may not be there yet, but we are likely closer than we think.
Within ReachIf you've ever felt that exaltation is unattainable, pick up this encouraging book. You'll discover that doing the best you can is all the Savior asks. He'll make up the difference and put perfection within reach.
Through reading Bro Millets books I have gained a more comprehensive and profound understanding of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. What the real interlocking principles and doctrines are and how they work together to bring us to Christ.
So beautifully and intelligently written making it so everyone can understand and embrace the truths written here in.
