Ye serve the Lord Christ. Colossians 3.24. Serving God and working for God are vastly different. Many work for God, but they are not serving Him. Faithful worksif they are really for Christare judged by motive and purpose. We must not labor for our own increase, for our own group, or even for our own pet teaching; we ought to work solely for Christ. We rejoice if God can gain something. We are glad whenever He has something to gain even though it does not come from our work. We are not out to save our teaching but to save sinners. Not out to gratify our own heart, simply to satisfy the heart of Christ.
