Then God seeks to warm the hearts of men by the trouble of fellowmen, so that they fulfil their earth life purpose, to increase their soul maturity through serving neighbourly love, because only love redeems them, only love makes free and gives light and power to the soul, only love draws the soul out of the deep upwards, only love leads it out of the darkness of night to the light and to freedom.

Earth life purpose: Serving in love in free will.

13. August 1950. B.D. NR. 4950.

This is your earth life purpose that you men serve each other in love, because only serving love is true love for the neighbour. Man is not allowed to believe that he himself can get by without the help of fellowman. He needs the neighbour, as also he is to assist him helpingly. Because love is to ignite in the heart of man, fellowman must sometimes be dependent on help, otherwise no opportunity would be offered to him, to bring his love to development. What can be proved in the whole material creation, is, that everything has its purpose; that therefore every work of creation serves, by it fulfilling its purpose in the mandatory state, to contribute to the preservation and enlivening of other works of creation. That is also the task of man, to serve, however in free will, therefore out of love for God and for the neighbour. And this serving love alone redeems man, because by this means he abolishes the old sin, the defection of the spiritual from God in arrogance and thirst for power. But who does not subordinate himself to this command of love for God and for the neighbour, his spirit is still full of arrogance; he does not recognize his earth life purpose and consequently remains unredeemed he cannot move in freedom after laying down of the body; he has not utilized earth life; he has lived it in vain even so it has brought him earthly advantage and at the end he can look back on a life full of hard work. It is about the soul of man, not about his body. The body was given to him, so that the soul could mature in it; the body was just the means for the purpose, because the soul is immortal, but the body dies, and the soul takes nothing of that what was acquired on earth over to the spiritual kingdom. As long as therefore man only cares for himself and goes along next to fellowman indifferently, as long as he has no open heart and eye for the need of his fellowman, he is ruled by self-love, which is a great obstacle for the ascent development of the soul. Because this self-love pulls down; self-love is a wrongly directed love, which never has a redeeming effect, but binds man still more, which descends like a fetter around his spirit, which can never be brought to awakening through self-love. Who loves himself, he will always look down on fellowman, and a serving in unselfish neighbourly love is impossible for him, because the principle to rule is still in him and keeps him back from every act of love. The deeper now mankind is in self-love, the greater will also be the earthly need, which God himself applies as means to light the flame of love for the neighbour in the hearts. Whose heart is touched by the need of fellowman, he is not yet hardened and his redemption is not questioned. Earthly trouble must be, when the spiritual trouble has become so great that love in the heart of men has cooled. Then God seeks to warm the hearts of men by the trouble of fellowmen, so that they fulfil their earth life purpose, to increase their soul maturity through serving neighbourly love, because only love redeems them, only love makes free and gives light and power to the soul, only love draws the soul out of the deep upwards, only love leads it out of the darkness of night to the light and to freedom. Amen. B.D. NR. 4950.
