I Felt Ashamed before God’s Word

God says: “Don’t think that I do not know what you are thinking about in your mind. Even though your lusts and your flesh are not let loose, could I not know what your heart longs for and what your eyes lust after? Isn’t it in order to show off your flesh that you these delicate young ladies dress up like flowers and jade? … You are full of lusts from head to foot, don’t you know? So much so that your lusts ooze out through your clothes, revealing your extremely ugly manners as unclean spirits. …” Every time I read this passage of God’s word, I was indifferent to it. I thought, “These words are all directed at young brothers and sisters. I am already a little over sixty; how could I still have lust? These words have nothing to do with me.” Because of my arrogance and self-rightness, I placed myself outside God’s word. Before long, I was exposed by God.

Once, God’s family assigned a brother and me to cooperate in a work. When I learned that the brother was one of my colleagues of thirty years before, I couldn’t help feeling a rush of excitement, which was even accompanied with a trace of imperceptible sweetness. The scenes of working together with that brother when I was young flashed unceasingly in my mind….

Before I started out, my heart was even more unable to calm down, and all that I thought in my mind was the exciting scenes of my meeting him. I tried all the clothes in the wardrobe and put on the most satisfying suit. I elaborately dressed up from head to foot, and even the handbag was carefully selected to match my suit. When I was about to rub the cosmetics on the face in the mirror, suddenly God’s words flashed through my mind: “Don’t think that I do not know what you are thinking about in your mind. Even though your lusts and your flesh are not let loose, could I not know what your heart longs for and what your eyes lust after? Isn’t it in order to show off your flesh that you these delicate young ladies dress up like flowers and jade? … You are full of lusts from head to foot, don’t you know? So much so that your lusts ooze out through your clothes, revealing your extremely ugly manners as unclean spirits. Aren’t you most clear about these?” Instantly, I reddened with shame. God’s words had so accurately penetrated the “secret” in my heart. I was surprised to discover that my innermost being should be so filthy, corrupt, and ugly. God’s family assigned me to cooperate in the work, but my mind was not on the work at all; instead, I was only thinking of meeting with that brother to talk about our old days. All these subtle mental activities of mine had early been clearly seen by God. What God’s words disclose is exact. I was just such a filthy and corrupt person. In the presence of the fact, I felt thoroughly ashamed and no longer dared to think highly of myself.

Now I have known that what God discloses about is the substance of man’s corrupt nature. None of God’s words is false! Regardless of people’s age, appearance, birth, and status, the substance of their corrupt inherent nature is the same and they are all filthy to the extreme and are at enmity with God. O God! If it had not been for your exposing, I would never have acknowledged that, even less seen how deeply I have been corrupted by satan. Now I fully believe that your word is directed at all mankind, and even more I have seen that your word is the truth, the way, and the life.
