The Christian life is the Spirit of God reproducing the life of the Son of God in the child of God. For this reason, when a Christian does something that others call "good," but it attracts attention to oneself, promotes oneself, persuades others of one's own spirituality, and brings credit to oneself, we have robbed God of His glory. As a believer, we will still be part of the redeemed but there will be no reward....Christ will not be appraising, "what did we do for Him?" but rather, "why did we do it?"
