To serve in coordination, one must coordinate correctly, with energy, and vividly. Furthermore, one must have vitality, vigor, and be brimming with confidence, so that others, when they see, are provided for and will be full. To serve Me, you must serve as I intend, not only conforming to My heart, but moreover satisfying My intentions, so that I am satisfied by what I accomplish in you. Fill your life with My word, fill your speech with My power—this is what I request of you. Does following your own desires reveal My likeness? Will that satisfy My heart? Are you someone who has sincerely observed My intentions? Are you someone who has truly tried to understand My heart? Have you indeed offered up yourself to Me? Have you truly expended yourself for Me? Have you contemplated My words?
One must use wisdom in every aspect and use wisdom to walk My perfect way. Those who act within My word are the wisest of all, and those who act in accordance with My word are the most obedient. What I say goes, and you need not debate with Me or try to reason with Me. Everything I say, I say with you in mind (no matter if I am strict or gentle). If you focus on being obedient that will be fine, and this is the way of true wisdom (and of preventing the judgment of God befalling you). Today, in My house, do not be polite to My face and say other things behind My back. I want you to be practical; you need not use florid rhetoric. For those who are practical, there is everything. For those who are not, there is nothing. Even their bodies will return with them to nonexistence, because without practicality, there is only emptiness; there is no other explanation.
In your faith in God, I would have you be earnest and give no thought to what you might gain or lose, nor for all you have; you should seek only to place your feet on the true way and not be swayed by anyone or controlled by anyone. This is what is known as being a pillar of the church, an overcomer of the kingdom; to do otherwise means you are not worthy to live before Me.
In different situations, the way to be close to Me is likewise different. Some people love to say pretty words and act devout before Me. However, behind the scenes they are in total disorder and My words are quite absent in them. They are disgusting and annoying; it is out of the question that they could edify someone or provide for someone. You are not able to be considerate of My heart only because you cannot have more closeness or fellowship with Me; you make Me worry for you constantly and labor for you constantly.
