78 It’s God’s Grace to Receive God’s Judgment and Chastisement
1. I can receive chastisement and judgment, and this is a special favor and is God’s grace to man. As far as man is concerned, he deserves nothing but only curses. It is God’s greatest grace to us that we can live until now. Man is too extravagant in his belief and should not make demands before God. Oh … man should not have other intentions, have other intentions against his conscience.
2. I should dedicate and sacrifice myself for God and consecrate my all to God and should not reserve anything, because I am one who was created by God and have been corrupted by satan, but today I have received God’s salvation. Now I have known that it is not that my nature is good, oh … but that God’s mercy and love have come upon me, have come upon me.
3. In the last days, I should bear testimony for God. No matter how difficult, I must do my best to live, and no matter how great the sufferings, I should walk to the end. Even if I have just one breath left, I should be faithful to God. This is, this is truly loving God, and this is a strong and resounding testimony. Oh … loving God and satisfying God is the most worthy and meaningful life, and loving God and satisfying God is most meaningful.
