1. For the sake of your fate, you ought to seek to be approved by God. Since you acknowledge that you are numbered among the house of God, you ought to bring peace of mind and satisfaction to God in all things. You must be principled in your actions and conform to the truth in such. You ought to know that God likes an honest man. God has the substance of faithfulness, and so His word can always be trusted. Furthermore, His actions are faultless and unquestionable. This is why God likes those who are absolutely honest with Him.
2. All believers in God have resisted and deceived God at some points along their path. Some misdeeds need not be recorded as an offense, but some are unforgivable; for many are that which transgresses the administrative decrees, which is an offense against the disposition of God. God exhorts you to better understand the content of the administrative decrees and know His disposition. Otherwise, you will find it difficult to keep your lips sealed and your tongues from wagging too freely with high-sounding talk. Unknowingly you may offend the disposition of God and fall into the darkness, losing the Holy Spirit and the light. If you are honest and act with principle, then you can be a confidant of God. If in your actions you do not offend the disposition of God, and you seek the will of God and have a heart of reverence for God, then your faith is up to the standard.
