The Third Sunday after Pentecost (C)
“What Are You Doing Here?”
June 30, 2019
Sermon Text: 1 Kings 19:9b-21, Luke 9:51-62
Grace, mercy and peace be unto you from God our Father and from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Dearly Beloved of the Lord,
It is the age-old question which man has… in one form or another… always been asking himself … “What am I doing here?”
And one could be more specific, completing the question by asking…
“What am I doing here in this occupation or vocation?”
“What am I doing here in this relationship?”
“What am I doing here in this place, at this time?”
And then there is the grand-daddy of all introspective questions…
“What am I doing here on earth?”
And behind all of these questions is really a person (and let’s be honest with ourselves, that includes you and me) who is searching… hungering… desiring for PURPOSE in their life… some validating REASON for their existence.
