On Your Mark, Set, Go!
We hear these words at the start of the race. The word "go" signifies it is time for action, time to do something and time to move. When Jesus gave the great commission, he echoed the call given to Abraham to leave his familiar surroundings to go outward. As a church determined to fuse with God's mission in the neighborhood, we need to step out of comfort, out of familiarity, out of the building and out into the neighborhood.
- Matthew 28:16-20
