Acts 5:20 "Go stand and speak to the people in the temple the whole message of this life."
Every wonder why He wanted them to go to the temple? These were the people who were religious. We see them all the time, here on Sunday mornings, never to come back till next Sunday. Fine upstanding people who have their names on a church roll and come to be counted and seen. Yes, Jesus needed his disciples to go to the churches and share with them that there is more to this life than having your name on a church roll. It's having a relationship with Christ, it's about surrendering your life to Him and living for Him. He died on this cross not only to save us, but to have a relationship with us! We take it beyond that and share with others so they too can know who Christ is and why He died for them. God wants more than for us to show up at church, yes He wants to worship with us and speak to us, but when we walk out the doors we are to take Him into the world with us! He is with us every step that we take. Are we showing Christ to those we come in contact with?
