“‘Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.'” (John 12:26, NIV)

To serve Jesus is to follow Jesus. To follow Jesus is to be with Jesus. 

It is not possible to truly serve Jesus without also following Him. If our service consists only of isolated acts — even sacrificial isolated acts — without a commitment to also go where He goes; and to do as He directs; such service is deficient.

To be a true servant of Jesus is to voluntarily subordinate our will to the will of the One being served. This type of service cannot be rendered at a distance. It is intimate. It is persistent.  – Luther
