Thesaid, “Not every one that said to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of My Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 7:21).

Christian Song Enze was arrested and imprisoned by the Chinese Communist Party for seven years because he believed in God and preached God’s gospel. After his release, he insisted on continuing to expend for God by spreading the gospel. He feels that by forsaking his home and career, laboring, and working, he is doing God’s will, and that he is certain to gain God’s approval and be brought into the kingdom of heaven by God. Later, Song Enze’s son becomes seriously ill, putting his life in danger, over which Song Enze bears a grudge against God, attempts to argue with God, and even loses his desire to do his duties. Through what is shown to him by the facts of his situation and the revelations in God’s word, Song Enze realizes that his many years of forsaking and expending for God were originally an attempt to barter for God’s grace and blessings, and that he is not someone obedient to God. Finally, through seeking, he finally learns how to pursue to escape his corrupt dispositions, become truly obedient to God, and be saved by God.
