Go

Go? No! Wait…go where?

Go ye

Ye who? Haha, I crack me up. Ye who is like a cross between Ye-haw and Yahoo. But still, go who?

Go ye therefore

Wherefore? What’s a therefore anyway?

Go ye therefore and

You mean there’s more?

Go ye therefore and teach

Now I know you are pulling my leg. I’m a nurse not a teacher.

Go ye therefore and teach all

All who? All is a lot of people. You know?

Go ye therefore and teach all nations

Huh? I don’t even like going downtown to be around the homeless. How can you expect me to go international?

Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them

You mean really baptizing, dunking, sprinkling, et cetera?

Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name

In my name? Who am I? Who am I to even go, teach, baptize, let alone in my name.

Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father

Okay. I get it. You want me to go tell people about God.

Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son

Not just about God but about His Son and the salvation He brings. Okay.

Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost

That’s how I can do it, huh? That’s how I can go and witness, whenever, wherever. I can do it with the power of the Holy Ghost living in me.

There’s more but the part you need to remember is “Lo, I am with you always”

Thank you for reassuring me.

Thank you for obeying me.

Sometimes we have to "break it down" to realize that he is talking to us. Simple, yet elegant. :)
