183 God’s Heart Is Not Yet Soothed
1 Having tasted the full bitterness of corruption of the flesh, I detest and hate Satan still more. God’s words expose and judge me harshly, and I now see clearly the truth of my own corruption. By accepting God’s judgment and refinement, I gain purification, and only then do I know that man must pursue the truth in their lives. I see that God’s work to save man is not easy. With conscience and reason, I should obey God. God endures humiliation to perform His work, and He does it to gain a group of people who love God. I feel guilt and self-reproach in my heart; if I don’t repay God’s love, then I’m unworthy to be called human. God is waiting for man to repent. I can no longer debase myself and live an empty life. I have not gained the truth or lived out a human likeness, so how could I give up so easily?
2 God’s work is coming to an end, I haven’t yet had much change in my disposition. Without the reality of the truth, how can I stand firm? How can I put God’s mind at ease and earn His trust? I’m nowhere near what God requires, how can I satisfy God if I don’t practice the truth? God’s heart is not yet soothed, I should live for God to repay His kindness. To satisfy God’s heart, I’m willing to suffer any pain. If I let God down, I’ll regret it for life and will be too ashamed to face Him. As a human, I must strive with all my efforts and not disobey or grieve God any longer. I wish to always turn towards righteousness, to love and be devoted to God for eternity; and only with the truth am I worthy to be called human.
