What Qualities Should an Adequate Shepherd Possess

You must have an understanding of the many conditions men will be in when the Holy Spirit performs work on them. In particular, those who coordinate to serve God must have an even better grasp of the many conditions brought about by the work that the Holy Spirit performs on men. If you only talk about many experiences and many ways of entry, it shows that your experience is too one-sided. Without grasping many situations in reality, you are unable to achieve transformation in your disposition. If you have grasped many conditions, then you will be able to understand various manifestations of the work of the Holy Spirit, and see clearly through and discern much of the work of the evil spirits. You must expose the many conceptions of men and go straight to the heart of the issue, you must also expose many deviations in people’s practice or problems of believing in God such that they may recognize them. At the very least, you must not make them feel negative or passive. However, you must understand the many difficulties that objectively exist for people, you must not be unreasonable and force them to do something they can’t do, for it is a foolish behavior. To resolve the many difficulties of men, you must understand the dynamics of the work of the Holy Spirit, you must understand how the Holy Spirit performs work on different people, you must understand the difficulties of men, the shortcomings of men, and see through to the key issues of the problem, get to the source of the problem, without deviations or errors. Such are the men qualified to coordinate to serve God.

Whether you are able to grasp the key issues and see clearly through many things depends on your individual experiences. The way that you experience affects how you lead others. If you understand letters and doctrines, then you lead others to understand letters and doctrines. The way that you experience the reality of God’s words is the way that you lead others to enter into the reality of God’s words. If you are able to understand many truths and see clearly through many things amid God’s words, then you are able to lead others to understand many truths, and those that you lead will have a clear understanding of the visions; if you focus on grasping the supernatural feelings, then those that you lead will also focus on the supernatural feelings; if you neglect to practice and emphasize on talking, then those that you lead will also focus on talking, without any practice, without any transformation in their dispositions, and they will only be enthusiastic on the outside, without practicing any truths. Men all supply others with what they have themselves. The type of the person determines the path that he guides others onto, and the type of the person determines the type of people that he leads. To be truly fit for God’s use, man not only needs to have aspiration, but he also needs many enlightenments from God, guidance from God’s words, dealing from God, and refinement from God’s words. Add to this foundation the observations, thoughts, pondering, conclusions, absorptions or eliminations that you normally pay attention to. These are all paths for your entry into reality, all of them are indispensable, and this is the way that God performs work. If you should enter into this method by which God performs work, then you will have the opportunity to be perfected by God every day. And at any time, regardless of whether things are going smoothly or badly for you, whether you are being tested or tempted, whether you are working or not, whether you are living life as an individual or as a collective, you will always find the opportunities to be perfected by God, without missing any chances. You shall be able to grasp all those opportunities, and in this way you will have found the secrets to experiencing God’s words.
