1. The words of God are full of life, offering us the path we should walk, the comprehension of what the truth is. We begin to be drawn to His words; we begin to focus on the tone and manner of His speaking, and be intentional to care about this ordinary person’s inner voice.
2. For us, God works His heart out; for us, He can’t sleep or eat; for us, He weeps and sighs; for us, He groans in sickness. He suffers shame for the sake of our destination and, and His heart sheds tears and bleeds for our rebelliousness and numbness.
3. Ordinary people don’t have such being and possessions of His. Also, any of the corrupted men can’t possess or attain them. His tolerance and patience are beyond ordinary people, and His love is not possessed by any created being.
