“Does he thank that slave because he did what was commanded? In the same way, when you have done all that you were commanded, you should say, ‘We are good-for-nothing slaves; we’ve only done our duty.’”
This so blows away our current focus on self image, self confidence, etc. The only good we have is what Christ Himself has done on our behalf and whatever pittance we can return in His Name by His power for His glory. We are worthless slaves and that is totally good news! The worthless slave cares only about how he can please his Master. Give me such a focus Lord Jesus.
