235 I’ve Seen How Precious the Truth Is
1 After a few years of faith I understood some spiritual doctrine. I thought I understood the truth and gained its reality. I performed a bit of my duty and always made a show of myself. I wholeheartedly pursued name and status, always comparing myself with others. Though I’ve suffered and expended myself in work, it was all for others’ high regard. I’ve worked hard through humiliation but only for face and status, yet thought I was being faithful to God. I appear humble and patient, but my nature is so arrogant and self-righteous. Now that I’ve gone through God’s judgment and chastisement I’ve finally been jolted awake. Through all these years of faith my life disposition hasn’t changed, I still belong to Satan.
2 Through trials and refinement I see how rebellious I am. I’m as lowly as a worm, I still throw everything into seeking status and name. I often strive for others’ admiration for my enjoyment. I always want to be a leader so I can rule over God’s chosen people, I really have no reason. God’s words judge mankind’s corruption and evil and reveal His righteousness. God reveals the truth of mankind’s corruption, holding nothing back. I’ve finally seen the root of the world’s darkness, evil, and depravity. Humanity has been so deeply corrupted by Satan we hardly resemble anything human. I’m so fortunate that God’s judgment has brought me cleansing and salvation, I’ve seen how real God’s love is.
3 By experiencing God’s words I have finally understood His will. The judgment, trials, and refinement of God’s words are all to purify mankind. All the truths that God expresses are His gift of life to mankind. Gaining the illumination and judgment of God’s words, I loathe my own corruption that much more. I’ve seen how precious the truth really is, it can purify and perfect people. I wish to give up everything to seek and gain the truth and make myself anew. No matter how great my suffering or refinement, I will follow Christ till the very end. No matter how great my suffering, I will fulfill my duty to glorify God to my very last gasp. Only God’s love is so real, I will always thank and praise God from my heart.
