Jesus always says ‘Go!’ Our command, as believers, is to take the love of Jesus out into the world. We are not supposed to stay inside the walls of our church, but the plan is for us to go and meet people where they live. The book of Acts gives us the script to follow, and Pastor Linda Pevey helps us learn our part in God’s great story.
