One servant cannot have multiple masters. For, the masters would start a mega war with each other to show supremacy. See, Jesus was CREATED by God. . . He was a Creation, and hence doesn't deserve worshipping.
Jesus himself worshipped God. If somebody follow Jesus, then what he should do is the worship God, not Jesus. . . Jesus came only to show how to pray! Hope people will understand this and abandon the concept of trinity. . .
May be trinity was invented to take consolation that WE ARE POWER FUL, WE HAVE THREE GODS. Actually there is only one God
The Godhead is one substance, consisting of three discernable persons who work in perfect harmony. Their harmony stems from their concensus decision to work from the foundation of Truth. The condition of Truth is the only one which can successfully build (anything). A creator, by nature a builder, can only conscience Truth as the basis upon which to succeed.
The three persons of the Godhead, existing in Truth, have divided between themselves the responsibilities essential to creation and its consequential maintenance.
The cited passage demonstrates the trinity quality of God's interaction with mankind. It identifies the Son (both True man and True God), the Father (speaking from heaven at the culmination of the Baptism), and Holy Spirit (decending as a dove-like vision)... This passage comes to us from Jewish disciples, teaching not only their brothers in heritage/faith (Jews) but also the Gentiles.
Man cannot reach up to God, nor attain perfection, from an imperfect state. God must reach down to mankind, providing dispensation from the condition (known as Sin) which was brought upon mankind through Satan (an aborrant, creation - a unique and rebellious angel).
God created men , and now God himself must come down to the rank of man for man's benefit. . . Then what was the point of God's creating man?
Nothing more to say to the experts. . . Just-

God created Man, as the pinnacle of His living organisms here on Earth. He knew that with the gift of reason would lead Man to be open to suggestions, which He foresaw Satan would make. God didn't walk into creating this universe as some ignorant clown... All the actions and consequences which would unfold were foreseen, and plans for mitigation were set. God loves His creation. And particularly, He loves the most important character therein. God seeks return of His love, equally (as He loves). Because Man is not on the same level as God, and because Man is limited in his abilities, he can only approximate (poorly) in return what God gives to Man.
When Man decided to deviate from God's plan, Man became sinful (and cannot be in the presence of God without cleansing of the sin). Since Man cannot cleanse himself, only God can cleanse Man. That means that the pure, the Truth, has to take upon Himself the sin which Man has manifested. If Man has no cleasing, his future is death - separation from God (eternally). A perfect sacrifice, one innocent of any crime, is the only way for this sin to be removed. The Son (the eternal, the Jesus personality of the Godhead) subordinated Himself to the Father, and refused to use His power (as part of the Godhead) except only as the Father directed. Jesus became a servant to the Father - an example to Man, to be emulated by him.
God wants Man to be able to be in His presence, and commune with Him - just as Man was in the Garden of Eden. The sacrifice of the perfect, sinless life (for the sinful) will suffer the penalty of the Law - which God had put into place as the consequence to taking one's eyes off of God. [This is as true for the angels, as it is for Man - that's why Satan is no longer permitted in Heaven (or any of the fallen angels - demons)]. Satan is sinful. The only problem that Satan has (differing from Man) is that Satan is already immortal (he has no mortal part which can die and leave the "soul" to live on afterward) - there's no solution for him. We're fortunate. We have a chance to regain what was lost - Satan does not.
Redeemed, Man can renew his relationship with God (as God intended it from the beginning). Since God only has Man's best interests in mind (joy, peace, love - as a Father has for His children), an eternity with these I find most attractive.

Your contention is that Jesus was not God. If Jesus was born of a human father and a human mother, then he would be sinful (as all of mankind is, by the Adamic sin) with no righteousness. What is in question (afterward) is whether a human being (as God designed and made them) can remain sinless. God, Himself, has stated that Man cannot do so. Man is less powerful that Satan, and cannot resist the temptations with 100% ability. Jesus, the human being, was begotten of God and born of a human mother. In being born of a human mother, Jesus was True Man. In being begotten of the Father, Jesus was True God (notice that "begotten" is not the same as inherently human parenthood).
The Adamic sin, under which Jesus was born as a man, was removed by the baptism He received at the hands of John the Baptist. At the point where that occurred, Jesus was now available to do the Father's will (using the Holy Spirit as the messenger) for human redemption - the perfect sacrifice.
Demons, who recognize Him as the Son of God, plead not to be tormented by His commands (which they had rejected at their fall from Heaven). Only God can compel Satan and his demons to do ANYTHING. Demons directed by Satan are not exorcised by him - that would be contradictory to his authority.
