Worship is what we were created for. To display the worth and value of His glory. And He created us so that we would see this glory and reflect it by knowing and loving it — with all our heart and soul and mind and strength.
You are most like Jesus when you’re serving others. After washing his disciples’ feet, Jesus said, “If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.” (John 13:14-15).
Following Christ means making disciples. His words echo in the back of our minds, “Go therefore and make disciples.” (Matthew 28:19) That is the command. That is the call. That is the priority of the people of God. Personal discipleship is about moving closer to what Jesus wants for us in every area of our lives.
From Genesis to Revelation, it is clear that God desires all people of all nations to know and worship Him. For Langston, this means that we focus on both our neighbor as well as those around the world. “Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.” (Luke 14:23)
