461 God Puts His Hope Completely on Man

I

From the beginning until today,

only man has been capable of conversing with God,

only man has been capable of conversing with God.

That is, among all living things and among creatures of God,

none but man can converse with God,

none but man can converse with God.

Man has ears that enable him to hear,

and eyes that let him see, let him see;

he has language, and his own ideas, and free will.

He is possessed of all that is required to hear God speak,

and understand God’s intentions,

and accept God’s commission, and so God confers all His wishes upon man,

wanting to make man a companion

who is of the same mind with Him and who can walk with Him.


II

Since He began to manage,

God has been waiting for man to give his heart to Him,

to let God purify and equip it.

This is so that man can be made satisfactory to God and loved by God,

and so that man can be made to fear God and shun evil.

God has ever looked forward to and awaited this outcome.
