490 Make Effort in Your Practice of God’s Word

Spoken

The greatest fault of people

having their faith in God is that

this faith is only in their words,

with God not present in their real life.

Verse 1

All men believe in God’s existence,

yet God isn’t part of their daily lives.

Man often prays to God, but in his heart,

God has little place, so He tries man.

Since man is impure, God’s forced to try man,

so he is ashamed, knows himself through tests,

or man will be the archangel’s child,

and become increasingly corrupt.

Chorus

Knowing God by believing in Him

is the final goal that man shall seek.

Devote effort to living out God’s words,

thus realizing them in your practice.

If you have only doctrinal knowledge,

then your faith in God will come to naught.

If you also practice, live His word,

your faith is complete and after God’s will.

Verse 2

During man’s faith in God,

many motives are cast off as God cleanses him,

or no man can be used by God,

and God can’t work in man like He ought.

God Almighty first cleanses mankind.

This way man knows himself and God changes man.

Then, God can work His life into man,

thus turning man’s heart fully to God.

Bridge

If you just have knowledge, without God’s word as life,

or you can’t practice truth, live God’s word,

this shows that you still have no heart of love for God,

and your heart doesn’t belong to God.

Chorus

Knowing God by believing in Him

is the final goal that man shall seek.

Devote effort to living out God’s words,

thus realizing them in your practice.

If you have only doctrinal knowledge,

then your faith in God will come to naught.

If you also practice, live His word,

your faith is complete and after God’s will.

Knowing God by believing in Him

is the final goal that man shall seek.

Devote effort to living out God’s words,

thus realizing them in your practice.

If you have only doctrinal knowledge,

then your faith in God will come to naught.

If you also practice, live His word,

your faith is complete and after God’s will.
