What does it mean to serve God?

Dear reader, do you work for peace and justice? Are you devoted to making the planet habitable for future generations? Then you are serving the Creator of life.

In Deuteronomy 30:19, the Creator spells out the situation we are find ourselves in today: This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live"

Well, what about serving Allah? Isn't this a different deity than the one Jews and Christians worship?

Sura 29:46; Dispute not"with people of the Book; And say ye, "We believe in what hath been sent down to us [Qur'an] and what hath been sent down to you. [Old & New Testaments] Our God and your God is one,..."

Sura 2:136; Say ye: "We believe in God, and that which hath been sent down to us [Qur'an], and that which hath been sent down to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes [Joshua], and in that was given to Moses, and to Jesus,

Sura 10:26; And God calleth to the abode of peace; and He guideth whom He will into the right way."

Sura 25:63; And the servants of the God of Mercy are they who walk upon the earth softly; and when the ignorant address them [Muslims], they [Muslims] reply, "Peace!" "

Sura 33:48;...obey not the infidels and hypocrites--yet abstain from injuring them:

Sura 8:61; And if they lean to peace, lean thou also to it;""
