154 Christ’s Work and Expression Determines His Essence


The work and expression of Christ determines His essence.

He can complete with a true heart that which has been entrusted to Him.

He can worship God in heaven with a true heart,

and with a true heart seek the will of God the Father.

This is all determined by His essence.

And so too is His natural revelation determined by His essence;

the reason this is called His “natural revelation”

is because His expression is not an imitation,

or the result of education by man, or of many years of cultivation by man.

He did not learn it or adorn Himself with it;

rather, it is inherent within Him.


Man may deny Christ’s work, His expression, His humanity,

and the entire life of His normal humanity,

but none can deny that He worships God in heaven with a true heart,

or that He has come to fulfill the will of the heavenly Father,

and none can deny His earnest heart with which He seeks God the Father.

Though His image is not pleasing to the senses,

though His discourse is not possessed of an extraordinary air,

and though His work is not as earth-shattering or heaven-shaking

as man imagines, as man imagines,

He is indeed Christ,

who fulfills the will of the heavenly Father with a true heart,

completely submits to the heavenly Father, and is submissive to the death.

This is because His essence is the essence of Christ.

This truth is hard for man to believe, but it is a fact, but it is a fact.
