Matthew 28:19-20 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: (20) Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
The first thing that Jesus said to the remaining eleven disciples was go. Go and share the message of his Father, God. Go means get up and move. We are lazy by nature. We as a society like to pass it on to someone else. Most of us would like to stay out of sight. Hide in the background. We think to ourselves that our opinions don't matter, so we keep our mouths closed. We would rather turn and run the other way much like Jonah tried to do. Like Jonah, God puts obstacles in our way. Much like the disciples God is telling us to go.
We come in contact with people everyday, whether it is at Walmart or at the gas pump. We are to get up and go tell them about Jesus. Where ever our Christian walk takes us there is only one thing we have got to do. Get up and go.
