Jesus came and said to them,
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.
And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
In Utah, the road systems and public transit system are reminders that we have been sent out into the world to bring others into the family and kingdom of God, and to be the "front door" of the church in our communities. When we gather to worship in Christian community, the purpose is to be filled with the Spirit and equipped by God's Word, then to be SENT back out into our world - our circles of influence - to shine as lights for Jesus Christ and invite people from all walks of life to find real life and belonging in the family of God.
