Only When God Becomes Flesh Can Man Be His Confidant

I
Only when God humbles Himself to an extent,
meaning He becomes flesh to dwell among men,
that’s when they can become His confidant,
that’s when they can be His intimate friend.
How can man qualify as God’s confidant
when God is of the spirit, exalted and hard to fathom?
Only by becoming the same created flesh as man
can man understand His will and be gained by Him.

II
God speaks and works in the flesh,
sharing in man’s joys, sorrows and tribulations,
living in their world, protecting and guiding them,
thus cleansing them to gain His blessing and salvation.
How can man qualify as God’s confidant
when God is of the spirit, exalted and hard to fathom?
Only by becoming the same created flesh as man
can man understand His will and be gained by Him.

III
Through this, man can truly understand God’s will
and become His confidant; only this is practical.
If God were invisible and intangible to man,
how could man be His confidant? Isn’t this doctrine idle?
How can man qualify as God’s confidant
when God is of the spirit, exalted and hard to fathom?
Only by becoming the same created flesh as man
can man understand His will and be gained by Him.
Only when God becomes flesh can man be His confidant.
