280 Peter’s Expressions of Love for God

1

Anything in Peter’s life that did not satisfy God’s desire

made him feel uneasy.

If it did not please God, he would feel remorse,

looking for a way to strive and satisfy God’s heart.

Even in the smallest things in Peter’s life,

he required himself to satisfy God’s desire,

no leniency with his old disposition,

demanding himself to go deeper into truth.

Be it chastisement, judgment, or tribulation,

you can achieve obedience unto death.

And this should be achieved by a creature of God.

This is the purity of the love of God.

This is the purity of the love of God.

Peter loved God to a point required by God.

Only such people can have testimony.

In his belief, Peter sought to satisfy God in everything,

obeying all that came from God,

without complaint, accepting chastisement and judgment,

refinement, lack in life and tribulation,

none of which could shake his love for God.

Is this not the ultimate love of God?

Does this not fulfill the duty of a creature of God?

Be it chastisement, judgment, or tribulation,

you can achieve obedience unto death.

And this should be achieved

by a creature of God.

This is the purity of the love of God.

This is the purity of the love of God.

This is the purity of the love of God.
