Following Instructions

today's reading.
Matthew 28:1    Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb...

the blog.
The very last verses of Matthew 28 caught my attention today. The scene is just after Jesus has risen and He is with the eleven disciples. Jesus first tells them to "Go and make disciples of all nations" and then He gives these instructions "Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you." So really a two part command from Jesus--go and tell, and then teach.

So what does your "go and tell" for Jesus look like? What are you doing (or what can you do) to help other Christians grow in their relationship with God? Tami W.

P.S. Happy Easter!
