200 God’s Judgment Has Saved Me
1 Without God’s salvation by judgment, my belief would still be vague and abstract. Clinging to religious notions, my heart was in a fog I could not escape. Sinning and confessing day after day, I could not cast off the binds of sin. I always lied and cheated yet I dreamed of being raptured into the kingdom of heaven. The words of God’s judgment of the last days have awoken my callous heart. I clearly saw that my efforts and suffering for God were just to gain blessings. I was conducting transactions with God, I had no conscience or reason. Filled with shame, I bow before God and gladly accept His judgment.
2 Undergoing judgment before the seat of Christ, I’ve tasted God’s true love. Though I suffer much pain and refinement, my heart is steady and at peace. Judgment and chastisement purify my corrupt disposition, I have gained the truth and received God’s great salvation. Trials of furnace temper my heart, they are of such benefit to my life. I am deeply aware that experiencing trials is God’s blessing. His righteous disposition is so lovely, He’s worthy of eternal praises. I’m grateful that God’s judgment has allowed me to live out a life of meaning. God’s judgment and chastisement have led me onto the right path of human life. Each day I enjoy God’s words and live before God. With the truth as my life, my disposition is changed. Christ is the truth, the way, and the life, I shall forever love and praise God.
