128 God Puts His Hope Completely on Man (Version 1)
From the beginning until now, only man’s able to converse with God. That is, only man is able to converse with God, among all living things and what He created. Man has ears to hear, and eyes to see; he has thoughts, and language, as well as his free will. Man has all abilities that are required to hear God speak and understand God’s will, and accept God’s commission, and accept the commission from God, and so God puts all His hope on man. He wants to make man a companion of His, who is of the same heart and mind with Him, and who can walk together with Him.
Since God started His management, God’s been waiting for man to give his heart, give his heart to Him all the time, to let Him purify and equip it, to make man satisfy God, loved by God, to make man fear God and shun evil. God’s been expecting and waiting, waiting for this outcome all the time, to make man satisfy God, loved by God, to make man fear God and shun evil. God’s been expecting and waiting, waiting for this outcome all the time.
