It is great to serve the King, His Church, His people, but the danger is that we, I, can begin to think that is what is important, that is what pleases Him, it is in my performance for Him that I should take pride and rejoice. But no. He reminds me that it is the work that He has done that is important. It is His work in my life that has caused me to be redeemed, to have my name recorded in His book that is the real reason to rejoice.
Everything else is second.
