Watu wakimwamini Mungu, na kupitia maneno ya Mungu, kwa moyo unaomheshimu Mungu, basi ndani ya watu hao kunaweza kuonekana wokovu wa Mungu, na upendo wa Mungu. Watu hawa wana uwezo wa kumshuhudia Mungu, wanaishi kwa kudhihirisha ukweli, na kile wanachokikiri ni kweli, kile Mungu Alicho, na tabia ya Mungu, na wanaishi Kati ya upendo wa Mungu na wameona upendo wa Mungu. Watu wakitaka kumpenda Mungu, lazima wauonje upendo wa Mungu, na kuuona upendo wa Mungu; hapo tu ndipo wanaweza kupata kuamshiwa moyo ndani yao ambao unampenda Mungu, moyo ambao uko tayari kutumia rasilmali kwa ajili ya Mungu kwa heshima. Mungu hawafanyi watu kumpenda kupitia maneno na sura, au kwa mawazo yao, na Hawalazimishi watu kumpenda. Badala yake, Anawafanya wampende kwa hiari yao, na huwafanya kuyaona mapenzi Yake katika kazi Yake na matamshi, ambapo baadaye wanakuwa na upendo wa Mungu. Ni kwa njia hii tu ndio watu wanaweza kuwa na ushuhuda kwa Mungu. Watu hawampendi Mungu kwa sababu wameombwa na wengine kufanya vile, wala si msukumo wa hisia wa muda mfupi. Wanampenda Mungu kwa sababu wameuona upendo wake, na wameona kuwa kuna mengi kumhusu ambayo yanastahili upendo wao, kwa sababu wameona wokovu wa Mungu, busara, na matendo ya ajabu—na kutokana na hayo, wanamsifu Mungu kwa kweli, na kumtamani kwa kweli, na wanaamshiwa msisimko ndani yao kwamba hawawezi kuishi bila kumpata Mungu. Sababu ya wale ambao humshuhudia Mungu wanaweza kumtolea ushuhuda wa kufana ni kwa kuwa ushuhuda wao umekitwa kwenye msingi wa ufahamu wa kweli pamoja na matamanio ya kweli kwa Mungu, si kutokana na msukumo wa hisia, lakini kulingana na ufahamu wa Mungu na tabia Zake. Kwa sababu wamepata kumjua Mungu, wanahisi kwamba lazima wamshuhudie Mungu, na kuwafanya wale wote wamtamanio Mungu wamjue Mungu, na kufahamu upendo wa Mungu, na uhalisi Wake. Sawa na mapenzi ya watu kwa Mungu, ushuhuda wao ni wa hiari, ni halisi, na una umuhimu halisi na thamani. Si baridi, au tupu na usiokuwa na maana. Sababu ya wale tu wanaompenda Mungu kweli kuwa na thamani na maana katika maisha yao, na kuamini katika Mungu tu, ni kwa sababu watu hawa wanaishi katika mwangaza wa Mungu, na wanaweza kuishi kwa ajili ya kazi ya Mungu na usimamizi Wake; hawaishi gizani, bali wanaishi katika mwangaza; hawaishi maisha yasiokuwa na maana, ila wanaishi maisha ambayo yamebarikiwa na Mungu. Ni wale tu ambao wanampenda Mungu wanaweza kumshuhudia Mungu, ndio tu mashahidi wa Mungu, ndio tu wamebarikiwa na Mungu, na ndio tu wanaweza kupokea ahadi za Mungu. Wanaompenda Mungu ni wandani wa Mungu, ndio watu ambao wamependwa na Mungu, na wanaweza kufurahia baraka pamoja na Mungu. Ni watu hawa tu ambao wataishi milele, na ni wao tu wataishi milele katika utunzaji na ulinzi wa Mungu. Mungu yuko kwa ajili ya kupendwa na watu, na anastahili upendo wa watu wote, lakini si watu wote ambao wanaweza kumpenda Mungu, na si watu wote wanaweza kumshuhudia Mungu na kushiriki mamlaka pamoja na Mungu. Kwa sababu wanaweza kumshuhudia Mungu, na kutoa juhudi zao zote kwa kazi ya Mungu, wanaompenda Mungu kwa kweli wanaweza kutembea mahala popote chini ya mbingu bila ya mtu yeyote kujaribu kuwapinga, na wanaweza kushika mamlaka na kutawala watu wote wa Mungu. Hawa watu wanakusanyika pamoja kutoka pembe zote za dunia, wanazungumza lugha tofauti na ni wa rangi tofauti, lakini kuishi kwao kuna maana sawa, wote wana moyo unaompenda Mungu, wote wana ushuhuda sawa, na wana maazimio sawa, na mapenzi sawa. Wale ambao wanampenda Mungu wanaweza kutembea ulimwenguni kote wakiwa huru, wanaomshuhudia Mungu wanaweza kusafiri duniani kote. Watu hawa wamependwa wa Mungu, wamebarikiwa na Mungu, na wataishi milele katika mwangaza Wake.

To Love God, You Must Experience His Loveliness

I

If people believe in God and experience words of God with a heart that reveres Him, they’ll have God’s salvation and love. These people can witness to God, they live the truth and they witness God’s being and disposition. They see God’s love, live amidst it. If people wish to love God, they must taste God’s loveliness, they must see God’s loveliness; only then can there be roused in them a heart that loves God and loyally expends for God.

II

God won’t make people love Him by words or imagination. He doesn’t force people but lets them love Him of their own volition. He makes them see how He’s lovely in His words and the work He does, and after that there is born inside them a true love for God. Only this way can people bear a true testimony to God. They don’t love God from being urged, nor on emotional impulse. If people wish to love God, they must taste God’s loveliness, they must see God’s loveliness; only then can there be roused in them a heart that loves God and loyally expends for God.

III

They love God because they see how He’s lovely, they see there’s so much of Him that’s loveworthy. They’ve seen God’s salvation, wisdom, His wondrous deeds. And this is why they praise God and yearn for Him, aroused in them such passion that they couldn’t survive without gaining God. If people wish to love God, they must taste God’s loveliness, they must see God’s loveliness; only then can there be roused in them a heart that loves God and loyally expends for God, and loyally expends for God.
