200 God’s Word Is Light
1 Lightning from the East woke me from my slumber, and through my haze, I saw God’s word appearing in the flesh. Words of judgment and chastisement conquered and saved me. Setbacks, failures, trials, and tribulations tore me to pieces. My corruption was revealed; arrogant though I was, I lowered my head. Only upon seeing my extreme filthiness did I know that I was unworthy. Thinking of my status and past debts, I wondered how I—a mean, base, and corrupt person—could be worthy of serving God. Through many setbacks and failures, I came to understand His will. Judgment, chastisement, trials, and refinement—they cleansed my corruption away. Knowing God’s righteous disposition is such a great blessing. I am a new person, living out a human likeness, and I’ll forever be grateful for God’s love.
2 God in the flesh is the Savior come again. Through judgment, tribulations, and trials, I have come face to face with Him. I have tasted salvation and known the practical God. A dark, hellish life has given me more clarity about what to hate and what to love. Enlightened and illuminated by God’s words, I now understand the mysteries of life. Mankind’s corrupt flesh is Satan incarnate. That I can love God and bear witness to Him is thanks to His exceptional exaltation. Repaying His love is my heart’s only desire. God’s judgment and chastisement are so meaningful, and they reveal His love. It is my duty to submit to and love Him with reverence. My bounden duty is to bear witness and be faithful to God; I will offer up all of myself to carry out His will, for His glory. God’s words purify and save me, allowing me to live out a real life. Through God’s judgment am I cleansed, and I shall love and bear witness to Him forever.
