And indeed God is my Lord and your Lord. So worship Him (read [the introductory particle] as anna, with an implicit [preceding] udhkur, `mention'; or read [it] as inna, with an implicit [preceding] qul, `say', [a reading] indicated by [the fact that God says elsewhere] `I only said to them that which You commanded me; "Worship God, my Lord and your Lord" ' [Q. 5;117]).

And verily, Allah is my Lord and your Lord. So worship Him. That is the straight path.

Among those things which `Isa said to his people while he was in his cradle is that Allah was his Lord and their Lord, and he commanded them to worship Him alone. He said,
فَاعْبُدُوهُ هَذَا صِرَاطٌ مُّسْتَقِيمٌ
(So worship Him. That is the straight path).

Meaning, "That which I have come to you with from Allah is the straight path."

This means that the path is correct; whoever follows it will be rightly guided and whoever opposes it will deviate and go astray.
