“The list of health problems I think it would very hard to live with is SO much longer than the list of foods I previously thought I couldn’t live without,” Merrill Alley.

Grace is part of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. It is the miracle of being saved from sin and death (Ephesians 2:8-9; 2 Nephi 25:23) as well as power that gives daily strength (Philippians 4:13; Jacob 4:6-7) unto endurance to believers. Even though it is a gift, it requires action to receive the fulness of the Lord’s grace (Moroni 10:32-33). For instance say a woman fell into a pit and called for help. Jesus looked into the pit and lowered a ladder. If the women refused to climb the latter, she could not be saved or removed from her terrible dilemma. At the top of the pit, Jesus called encouragement, explained how to climb out, and held the latter. But if the woman in the pit never climbed the rungs she remained where she was, not partaking of the grace of the ladder, encouragement, or instructions (John 1:12-17; John 15:1-11.)
