Mary of Bethany

The first thing is to love God. God so loved the world that he gave his only son and that son Jesus said to go into the whole world and make disciples. Yes, that's true; but first we love God and then that is what we disciple people in. Jesus said first love God, then love your neighbor.
Mary of Bethany got this. We minister to God first, then minister to people or seek out ministry for ourselves. The more our lives are fully given over to ministry to God first, the more effective we will be in ministering to others. Are you ready to minister to Jesus so much and be so captivated by him that other people give you a hard time? God does not need worship to feel better or something like that , but to give God worship and adoration is to come into proper alignment with what the truth is, and doing so is righteous- it puts you in the right order and then everything else can fall into place: "Turn your eyes upon Jesus, Look full in His wonderful face, And the things of earth will grow strangely dim, In the light of His glory and grace."
