I serve God by living my life the best way I know how. I spend time in the word of God and I spend time in worship daily. I try to live my life in a way that will pleases God. I try not to get into things that will grieve The spirit of God. I rely on God for all because I know I can't do or accomplish anything on my own. it's only b His grace and mercy.

Our purpose in life is to worship God and glorify Him. Live a life characterised by charity, humbleness, loving your neighbours, forgiving your enemies, glorifying His prophets, following his Laws. That is our purpose in life. Life is ohh so short and before you know it..you will be brought before Him to answer for all your deeds on this earth.

There are some who doubt or deny His existence. But think awhile why is it there is an inordinate desire in all civilisations to worship 'something'? So-called experts will dredge up numerous theories...which are just that..theories. No...our souls or essence were already formed long before the universe was expanded..waiting for the day when we are brought to this earth to live our life. Our souls or essence had already made a pledge to God that we would only worship Him when we were each assigned our appointed time on earth. That is why there is this need in us to believe in a Higher form...ie our Creator. Unfortunately, somewhere along the line, Mankind digressed and did not walk the straight path - worshiping idols or trees or rocks or nature itself or worshiping multiple gods or 3 gods and some even doubting His existence etc etc losing their way to the true path of worshiping only 1 God - the God.

Why the 'pledge of allegiance' by our souls/essence before we were brought to earth - all of us though at different times? So that when we are brought to face Him on Judgement Day, we cannot say that we do not know about the His existence when we all had made the pledge. If we cannot remember the pledge during our earthly existence, then too bad for us as God had sent many signs to us...mainly in the forms of propehts and messengers to lead us. If we had not made any pledge then of course God cannot Judge us for to do so would be unjust of Him, and God is never unjust.
