The Christian vocation is essentially a call to be a disciple of Jesus. God wants us to cherish and serve others and contribute to the overall welfare of our faith community. God calls us all to serve as He served – to use the talents that He has given each of us for the benefit of His glory and that of His whole world.
We ask you, brothers, to respect those who are laboring among you and who are over you in the Lord and who admonish you, and to show esteem for them with special love on account of their work. Be at peace among yourselves.
Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”
