What will of God is concealed within the Lord Jesus’ refusal to observe the Sabbath? And what inspiration does it bring to us today?
Life Vest Inside – Kindness Boomerang – “One Day”
This video, which is full of positive energy, uses a long take to display how to pass on the act of kindness. We can get the message that the author wants to tell us: Once everyone keeps good thoughts and shows their own concern, love will be passed on. The video first shows a boy, who faceplanted on a skateboard, was given a hand by a worker in an orange vest; and then the act of goodwill passed on among several people. In the end, it managed to boomerang back to this worker. And he gave a happy smile. The scenes of the video, which go with the soundtrack, express people’s expectation for such an ideal life.
Many times I also wish our interactions with each other could be as beautiful as what the video shows. But in today’s society, it’s hard to realize this beautiful wish. In this rising economic society, all we pursue is satisfy our own interests and desires. And the rising crime rate and the drop of human morality make us difficult to trust each other. So in our interactions with others, we always guard against and suspect others for fear of being cheated, or rack our brains to scheme against each other for our own interests. Nowadays, frauds become ever more frequent, murders for money happen all the time, the winds of disdaining for the poor and fawning over the rich, and stressing on benefits rather than justice have penetrated more deeply into our hearts, what’s the root of these?
God’s words say: “So what are these trends? You cannot see these trends with the naked eye. When the wind of a trend blows through, perhaps only a small number of people will become the trendsetters. They start off doing this kind of thing, accepting this kind of idea or this kind of perspective. The majority of people, however, in the midst of their unawareness, will still be continually infected, assimilated and attracted by this kind of trend, until they all unknowingly and involuntarily accept it, and are all submerged in and controlled by it.” “Satan uses these social trends to lure people one step at a time into a nest of devils, so that people caught up in social trends unknowingly advocate money and material desires, as well as advocate wickedness and violence. Once these things have entered man’s heart, what then does man become? Man becomes the devil Satan! This is because of what psychological leaning in the heart of man? What does man advocate? Man begins to like wickedness and violence. They do not like beauty or goodness, much less peace. People are not willing to live the simple life of normal humanity, but instead wish to enjoy high status and great wealth, to revel in the pleasures of the flesh, sparing no effort to satisfy their own flesh, with no restrictions, no bonds to hold them back, in other words doing whatever they desire.” “In this way, man becomes more and more what? More and more evil, arrogant, condescending, selfish, and malicious. There is no longer any affection between people, no longer any love between family members, no longer any understanding between relatives and friends; human relations have become full of cheating, full of violence.”
God’s words reveal the source of why people in this world advocate wickedness and interests and are full of selfishness and deceit. It is caused by the evil trends from Satan. Actually what we advocate is the means Satan employs to tempt and corrupt us. Through satisfying our desires, we are gradually corroded by the evil trends, we become worse and worse, seek nothing but profit and no longer have affection or love. Then how to avoid being assimilated by the evil trends? God’s words show us the way.
God says: “is real: Through the grace of God man avoids one disaster after another, whilst to man’s weakness, God shows His tolerance time after time. The judgment and chastisement of God allows people to gradually come to know mankind’s corruption and their corrupt satanic essence. That which God provides, His enlightenment of man and His guidance all allow mankind to know more and more the essence of truth, and to increasingly know what people need, what road they should take, what they live for, the value and meaning of their lives, and how to walk the road ahead. All these things that God does are inseparable from His one original purpose. What, then, is this purpose? Do you know? Why does God use these ways to carry out His work on man? What result does He want to achieve? In other words, what does He want to see in man and get from them? What God wants to see is that man’s heart can be revived. In other words, these ways that He uses to work on man are to continually awaken the heart of man, awaken man’s spirit, letting man know where they came from, who is guiding them, supporting them, providing for them, and who has allowed man to live up till now; they are to let man know who is the , whom they should worship, what kind of road they should walk, and in what way man should come before God; they are used to gradually revive the heart of man, so man knows God’s heart, understands God’s heart, and comprehends the great care and thought behind His work to save man. When man’s heart is revived, they no longer wish to live the life of a degenerate, corrupt disposition, but instead wish to seek out the truth in the satisfaction of God. When man’s heart has been awakened, they are then able to make a clean break with Satan, no longer to be harmed by Satan, no longer to be controlled or fooled by it. Instead, man can cooperate in God’s work and in His words in a positive way to satisfy the heart of God, thus attaining fearing God and shunning evil. This is the original purpose of God’s work.”
When we wish to come before God and accept the watering and supply of, our heart will gradually be awakened by God. And through understanding the truth, we can distinguish between good and evil and gradually see through the fact of our corruption by Satan. Then we’ll be able to forsake Satan and practice according to God’s words. When we can rid ourselves of Satan’s disruption and control, we’ll no longer be deceived by the evil trends of the world. Without the bonds of Satan, our interactions with each other are on the basis of practicing the truth, then we’ll be able to open up our hearts and support each other in spirit, and finally live in harmony together, help one another. Now my brothers and sisters and I all try to practice God’s words, no matter friction, conflicts or assistance needed by brothers and sisters, we quiet our heart before God, open our heart and fellowship about God’s words. Sure enough, our relationships in spirit has gotten closer and we no longer suspect or guard against each other. Thank God’s guidance!
