I believe the reference is to Philippians 3:7-9

7But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.

8Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,

9And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

Now I'm confused. Where did this com from?:

It's to us to do the Good, and make the world worthy of it's maker.

Isn’t aKempis trying to say that no matter what we have to suffer and go through, it will be sweet in the end for us, if we abandon the current secular world with all its magnets and instead serve God above all things?

Or am I misreading this — or maybe not understanding what you want to say?
