He was the Creator, and he ruled over all things, ruling over everything, but when he came to the world, he had to bear being slaughtered and afflicted by corrupt mankind, and in order to complete his work and save mankind from the abyss of misery, he had to be condemned by men and bear the sins of all men. All these sufferings he underwent are beyond the imagination and understanding of ordinary men.
Do you each have a picture of God and Adam in your heart? You can imagine that. If you were personally on the scene, what kind of God would you think God is in your heart? What feeling does this picture give you? It is a touching and warm picture. Although there is only God and man in it, the close relationship between them is so admirable: God’s love overflows, freely bestowed on man and surrounding man; man, innocent and pure and free from cares and anxieties, lives under God’s eyes happily; God is concerned about man, and man lives under the protection and blessing of God, and what man does and man’s every word and deed are all closely related to God and cannot be independent from God.
God loves mankind, takes care of mankind, and shows concern for mankind, and he also unfailingly supplies mankind; in his heart he has never felt that these are extra things or felt that these are things doing great credit to him, nor has he ever felt that he has made a great contribution to mankind because of saving mankind, supplying mankind, and bestowing everything to mankind. He just supplies mankind silently and quietly like this in his own way and with his own substance and with what he has and is. No matter how much supply and help man has received from him, he does not have any thought or action of taking credit from man. This is determined by God’s substance, and this is precisely a true expression of God’s disposition.
