281 God Still Loves Us Today
1 God incarnate has come among humanity, and humble and hidden, He expresses the truth, experiencing human suffering in person and tasting all the bitterness and sweetness of the mundane world. He walks among the churches, passing through countless springs, summers, autumns, and winters. His words judge and cleanse us, and they save us from Satan. Only now that we have come face to face with Christ do we see that God is the truth. Our hearts have been called awake by God, and we see how profoundly corrupt we are. It is thanks to God’s patience and tolerance that we are saved. We experience the greatness of God’s salvation; God is truly worthy of our love and praise.
2 To bring humanity salvation, God has undergone all manner of suffering, shedding blood, sweat, and tears. Scenes of the past are difficult to forget, and God’s love of humanity is immeasurable. In times of weakness, God propped me up; when my heart ached, God’s words brought me solace. When I was arrogant, God chastened and disciplined me, leading to today one step at a time. So many times has God brought majestic judgment, and so many times has He pruned and dealt with us, purifying us of corruption so that we might live as a true human being should. We have undergone trials and tribulations, God’s words guide, enlighten, and lead us, giving us faith and strength. With God, we have overcome Satan. God has always been with us; how can we let down His hopes? I bear in mind God’s exhortations, and will do my best to fulfill my duty to console God’s heart, willingly enduring all trials and suffering, and bearing resounding testimony to glorify God. The path to loving God is rife with pits and snares, in negativity I may fall, but then I stand up again. No matter how great the setbacks I may encounter, I will always love God without complaining and with no regrets!
