Man’s enthusiasm and intentions come from Satan, and in no way can they complete the Holy Spirit’s work, in no way can they complete the Holy Spirit’s work. No matter what kind of person one is, one must have the work of the Holy Spirit—can a person complete a person? Can a person complete a person? Why does a husband love his wife? And why does a wife love her husband? Why are children dutiful to their parents? And why do parents dote on their children? What kinds of intentions do people really harbor? Is it not in order to satisfy one’s own plans and selfish desires? Is it really for God’s management plan? Is it for God’s work? Is it to fulfill a creature’s duty?
