"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." Mark 16:15
I think there is a misconception of Christianity among many believers. That misconception is the idea that Christianity is lived out at church-- in other words, Christianity is lived out when you are in church services only. Christian living is much more than a church gathering or service.
When Jesus said to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature, the words "go ye" translates "as you are going". So as you are going about the task of life, preach the gospel. Your Christianity is to be lived out everywhere you are-- at home, on your job, out in the market place, when gathered with friends, at church.... anywhere life takes you.
We also have had the misconception that this command to preach the gospel means we have to stand in a pulpit or on some platform in front of a group of people. To preach as you are going means just telling others about what the Lord has done in your life be it at the kitchen sink with a friend, or sitting in the doctor's office with someone you are having a conversation with. Preach it by telling others that Jesus loves them. Preach it by taking advantage of opportunities to encourage others in the Lord. Preach it through your lifestyle.
So as you are going through life, live out who you are where you are.
Have a great day. Christianity is not lived out only in church, it is lived out wherever you are.
