Nyote mko katikati ya majaribu na usafishaji. Mnapaswa kumpendaje Mungu wakati wa usafishaji? Baada ya kupitia usafishaji, watu wanaweza kumtolea Mungu sifa ya kweli, na katika usafishaji, wanaweza kuona kwamba wamepungukiwa sana. Kadiri usafishaji wako ulivyo mkubwa, ndivyo unaweza zaidi kukana mwili; kadiri usafishaji wao ulivyo mkubwa, ndivyo zaidi ulivyo upendo wa watu kwa Mungu, Hili ndilo mnapaswa kuelewa. Je, kwa nini ni lazima watu wasafishwe? Linalenga kutimiza matokeo gani? Je, umuhimu wa kazi ya Mungu ya usafishaji kwa mwanadamu ni gani? Ukimtafuta Mungu kwa kweli, basi baada ya kupitia usafishaji Wake hadi kiwango fulani utahisi kwamba ni mzuri sana, na ni wa umuhimu mkubwa kabisa. Je, mwanadamu anapaswa kumpenda Mungu jinsi gani wakati wa usafishaji? Kwa kutumia azimio la kumpenda Mungu kukubali usafishaji Wake: Wakati wa usafishaji, unateseka ndani, kana kwamba kisu kinasokotwa moyoni mwako, ilhali uko tayari kumridhisha Mungu kwa kutumia moyo wako, ambao unampenda, na hauko tayari kuutunza mwili. Hii ndiyo maana ya kutenda upendo wa Mungu. Unaumia ndani, na mateso yako yamefikia kiwango fulani, lakini bado uko tayari kuja mbele ya Mungu na kuomba ukisema: “Ee Mungu! Siwezi kukuacha. Ingawa kuna giza ndani yangu, ningependa kukuridhisha; Unaujua moyo wangu, na ningependa kwamba Uwekeze zaidi ya upendo Wako ndani yangu.” Huu ndio utendaji wakati wa usafishaji. Ukitumia upendo wa Mungu kama msingi, usafishaji unaweza kukuleta karibu zaidi na Mungu na kukufanya mwandani zaidi wa Mungu. Kwa kuwa unamwamini Mungu, ni lazima uukabidhi moyo wako mbele ya Mungu. Ukiutoa moyo wako na kuuweka mbele ya Mungu, basi wakati wa usafishaji, haitawezekana wewe kumkana Mungu, au kumwacha Mungu. Kwa njia hii, uhusiano wako na Mungu utakuwa wa karibu hata zaidi, na wa kawaida hata zaidi, na mawasiliano yako na Mungu yatakuwa ya mara kwa mara zaidi. Ikiwa wewe daima hutenda kwa jinsi hii, basi utashinda wakati zaidi katika mwanga wa Mungu, na wakati zaidi chini ya mwongozo wa maneno Yake, kutakuwa pia na mabadiliko zaidi na zaidi katika tabia yako, na ufahamu wako utaongezeka kila siku. Siku itakapokuja na majaribu ya Mungu yakufike kwa ghafla, hutaweza tu kusimama kando ya Mungu, bali pia utaweza kuwa na ushuhuda kwa Mungu. Wakati huo, utakuwa kama Ayubu, na Petro. Baada ya kuwa na ushuhuda kwa Mungu, utampenda kwa kweli, na utamtolea maisha yako kwa furaha; utakuwa shahidi wa Mungu, na yule ambaye ni mpendwa wa Mungu. Upendo ambao umepitia usafishaji ni wa nguvu, na sio dhaifu. Haijalishi ni lini au vipi Mungu anakufanya upatwe na majaribu Yake, unaweza kutojali ikiwa unaishi au unaangamia, kuachana na kila kitu kwa furaha kwa ajili ya Mungu, na kuvumilia chochote kwa furaha kwa ajili ya Mungu—na hivyo upendo wako utakuwa safi, na imani yako halisi. Ni hapo tu ndipo utakuwa mtu anayependwa na Mungu kwa kweli, na ambaye amefanywa kamili na Mungu kwa kweli.

Give Your Heart Before God If You Believe in Him

I

Since you believe in God, you must hand your heart to Him. Offer up your heart, and when refined, you’ll not deny God or leave. And your connection with God will take on a normal form. Your communion with God will become more frequent and more close. If you always practice this way, you will live in God’s light more, you’ll be more guided by God’s words, your disposition more transformed. Your knowledge, day by day, it will accumulate. When the day comes and God’s trials fall upon you suddenly, you will not only stand by God’s side, but you’ll bear witness to Him. Then you’ll be a person just like Job, just like Peter. Since you believe in God, you must hand your heart to Him. Offer up your heart, and when refined, you’ll not deny God or leave. And your connection with God will take on a normal form. Your communion with God will become more frequent and more close.

II

Having borne witness to God, you’ll be the one who truly loves Him. For Him you can lay down your life, and His witness you will be. You will be the one beloved, the one who is beloved by God. Since you believe in God, you must hand your heart to Him. Offer up your heart, and when refined, you’ll not deny God or leave. And your connection with God will take on a normal form. Your communion with God will become more frequent and more close.

III

Love that has undergone refinement, it’s strong and isn’t fragile. Regardless of when or how God subjects you to trials, you will not give any thought to whether you live or not. For God you’ll gladly cast all aside, happily endure all for God. Thus your love is pure, your faith is real, and then you will be loved by God. Only then can you become someone perfected by God. Since you believe in God, you must hand your heart to Him. Offer up your heart, and when refined, you’ll not deny God or leave. And your connection with God will take on a normal form. Your communion with God will become more frequent and more close.
