The source of our service must be God, and the basis of our work must be the fire from the altar. In serving God we need to have not only the proper source (which is God Himself) but also the proper basis, the basic principle of our work.
If we don’t have the proper basis, even though we may have the right source we may work for God by our zeal or knowledge.
According to Leviticus, the basis of our service has to be the fire from the altar of burnt offering; until the fire comes, there’s no service. We serve God because there’s a fire burning in us. The God who sends us for His service and who is the source of our service is the fire burning in us!
