How is performing duty related to pursuing the truth? And how is it related to being saved?

duty-gospel

The answer from God’s word:

It is in the course of performing his duty that one is transformed gradually, and it is also in the course of performing his duty that one’s faithfulness is revealed. So, the more you can perform your duty, the more truths you will gain, and the more practical your expressions will be. Those who just perform their duty perfunctorily and do not seek the truth will still be eliminated in the end, because they are not performing their duty in the course of practicing the truth and they do not practice the truth in the course of performing their duty. Such people are the ones not transformed who will suffer disasters. What they express is not only with mixtures, but all that they express is evil.”

from “The Difference Between the Ministry of the Incarnated God and the Duty of Man”
in The Word Appears in the Flesh

You should perform your own duties properly with an open and upright heart and should spare no cost. Just as you say, on that day God will not treat anyone unfairly who has suffered and paid the price for him. Such a belief is worth holding, and you should never forget it. Only thus can I have trust in you. Otherwise, you will forever be ones in whom I cannot have trust and will be ones I hate forever. If you all can, according to your conscience, expend everything for me, exert all your effort for my work, and dedicate your lifetime energies to my gospel work, then won’t my heart often leap with joy for you? Then won’t I have full trust in you?”

from “On Destination” in The Word Appears in the Flesh

If you are very willing to be a service-doer in God’s family, working in obscurity, laboring diligently, and demanding nothing but only making contributions, I say that you are a faithful saint, because you expect no reward but only seek to be an honest person. If you are willing to be candid, if you are willing to fully spend your whole being, if you can sacrifice your life for God and stand testimony, and if you are so honest a person that you only know to satisfy God but do not think about yourself or demand anything for yourself, I say that such people are ones who are nourished in the light and who will live forever in the kingdom.”
