796 Only Those Who Know God Can Bear Witness for Him
1 The reason why those who truly testify to God are able to give a resounding testimony to Him is because their testimony is upon the foundation of the true knowledge and true yearning for God. It is not according to an emotional impulse, but according to the knowledge of God and His disposition. Because they have come to know God, they feel that they must surely testify to God, and make all those who yearn for God know God, and be aware of God’s loveliness, and His realness.
2 Like people’s love for God, their testimony is spontaneous, it is real, and has real significance and worth. It is not passive, or hollow and meaningless. The reason why only those who truly love God have the most value and meaning in their lives, and only they truly believe in God, is because these people live in God’s light, they are able to live for God’s work and management; they do not live in darkness, but live in the light; they do not live meaningless lives, but lives that have been blessed by God.
