276 Only God Is Best
1 All God’s words are the truth, what He says and does is all righteous. Once we experience the judgment of God’s words, we should seek the truth. When we acknowledge that we have corrupt dispositions, we should submit to God’s judgment even more. Only when our corrupt dispositions have been cleansed away can we meet God’s will. Relinquish our notions and imaginings, look to God and practice the truth. Bolster our resolve to imitate Peter, and bear resounding witness.
2 Undergoing the judgment of God’s words, I’ve seen how deeply corrupted by Satan I am. I’m arrogant, crooked and deceitful, I really have no human likeness. After accepting judgment and knowing myself, I’ve truly repented. Getting a taste of God’s disposition that tolerates no offense, I revere God from my heart. God’s immense love is hidden behind His judgment and chastisement. Forsaking the flesh and practicing the truth, I feel God is even closer.
3 When persecution, hardship, and trials befall, we must stand witness to glorify God. Through life or in death, created beings should submit to God’s rule. By suffering great adversity and pain, we come to hate Satan, and all the more we feel how kind and lovable God is. Risk our lives to shame Satan, bear victorious witness. Light afflictions, which are but transitory, are repaid with the truth and life. Everything God says and does is love, in this our faith is strong and free from doubt. Let’s raise our voices and sing; only God is best! We will praise God’s holiness and righteousness forever!
