785 How to Bear Witness to God in Your Faith
1 You have experienced so much of God’s work, you have seen it with your own eyes and experienced it personally, and so don’t get to the very end and not even be able to perform the function that you ought to. That would be such a pity! In the future, when the gospel is spread, you should be able to speak of your own knowledge, testify to all that you have gained in your heart, and spare no effort. This is what should be attained by a created being. What actually is the significance of this stage of God’s work? What is its effect? And how much of it is carried out in man? What should people do? When you can speak clearly of all the work done by God incarnate since coming to earth, then your testimony will be complete.
2 When you can speak clearly of these five things—the significance, content, substance of His work, His disposition represented by it, and His work principles—then this will prove that you are capable of bearing testimony to God, and that you are truly possessed of the knowledge. God’s requirements of you are not very high, and are attainable by all those who truly pursue. If you are resolved to be one of God’s witnesses, you must understand what God loathes, and what God loves. You have experienced much of His work, and through this work you must come to know His disposition, understand His will and His requirements of mankind, and use this to testify about Him and perform your duty.
