It is true that we are important for God, but another very certain thing is that we must understand our position as a useless servant, we can not have the mentality that what we have things because we deserve it, but that all that God allows us to have is pure grace. There are some words that the book of Psalms says about how great God is and how tiny we are and yet the Most High visits us:
What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
A great example of how God being so great can be interested in us is to think that an elephant is friend of an ant, certainly the ant is almost invisible compared to an elephant and it seems crazy to think of a friendship like that, however, of the same way, God being so great, being so powerful and holy has chosen us and has decided to put His gaze on us.
Now dear brothers, let us imagine that we are like an ant before God, this means that the whole scenario is for God, that all the glory is for Him and not for us.
Jesus spoke to His disciples saying those things they could do if they had faith, but later He reminded them that glory is only for God:
9 Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I trow not.
10 So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.
My brothers, let us not believe that doing the work of God, such as evangelizing, going to the temple early, etc. they make us be the main character, but when we do all that we only have to say: What I should have done, I am useless servant.
All glory, honor and majesty be given to God and not to ourselves.
