How Should You Attend to Your Future Mission?
Are you able to communicate God’s disposition of the age in language that suitably conveys the significance of the age? Are you able to describe, in detail, God’s disposition by means of your experience with God’s work? How can you describe it in a way that is fitting and appropriate? So that through this, others can learn about your experience. How will you pass on what you’ve seen and experienced to those pitiable, poor, and devout religious believers who hunger and thirst for righteousness and are waiting for you to shepherd them? What kind of people are waiting for you to shepherd them? Can you imagine? Are you aware of the burden you shoulder, your commission, and your responsibility? Where is your sense of historic mission? How will you adequately serve as a master in the next age? Do you have a strong sense of masterhood? How would you explain the master of all things? Is it really the master of all living creatures and of all physical things in the world? What plans do you have for the progress of the next phase of this work? How many people are waiting for you to be their shepherd? Is your task a heavy one? They are poor, pitiable, blind, and at a loss, wailing in the darkness—where is the way? How they yearn for the light, like a shooting star, to suddenly descend and dispel the forces of darkness that have oppressed man for so many years. Who can know the full extent to which they anxiously hope, and how they pine, day and night, for this? These deeply suffering people are imprisoned in a dark dungeon without hope of release, even on a day when the light streaks across; when will they weep no longer? These fragile spirits, who have never been granted rest, are truly suffering great misfortune. They have long been kept bound in this state by merciless bonds and the history that is frozen in place. And who has heard the sound of their wailing? Who has seen their miserable visage? Has it ever occurred to you how grieved and anxious God’s heart is? How can He bear to see innocent mankind, whom He created with His own hands, suffering such torment? It is human beings, after all, who are the victims of having been poisoned. And although man has survived to this day, who would have known that mankind has long been poisoned by the evil one? Have you forgotten that you are one of the victims? Are you not willing to strive, out of your love for God, to save these survivors? Are you not willing to use all of your energy to repay God—He who loves mankind like His own flesh and blood? When all is said and done, how would you interpret being used by God to live your extraordinary life? Do you really have the resolve and confidence to live the meaningful life of a pious, God-serving person?
