1013 With the Truth There Is Strength

1 You must understand the significance of your giving up your families and expending yourselves for God, as well as why you want to do this. If it is to pursue truth, to pursue life, and to fulfill your duties and repay God’s love, then that is completely righteous—a positive thing—and it is Heaven’s law and earth’s principle. In that case, you will never have regrets, and you will not become negative. When people have truth, they have strength. When they have truth, they are filled with inexhaustible energy. When they have truth, they have will. Without truth, they are like the limp dregs of tofu. With truth, they are firm and emboldened, and they do not feel their suffering as suffering, no matter how much they endure.

2 If people had a genuine understanding of God’s disposition, and they could give heartfelt praise to His holiness and righteousness, they would then truly know God and possess the truth, and only then would they be living in the light. Only once people’s view of the world and of life changes will they transform fundamentally. When one has a life goal and comports oneself according to the truth, when one absolutely submits to God and lives by God’s word, when one feels peaceful and brightened deep in one’s soul, when one’s heart is free of darkness, and when one lives completely freely and unrestrainedly in God’s presence—only then does one live a true human life and become a person who possesses the truth. Besides, all the truths you possess are from God’s word and from God Himself. The Ruler of the entire universe and all things—God Most High—approves of you as a real person. Such is a person who has the truth.
