Why are you still here?

The Lord invigorated me in corporate worship this morning! A large part of that was through an outstanding sermon taking up the end of the Gospel of Matthew.

The title of this post refers to a piercing question from the sermon. If we are saved, then why are we still here?

As pastor pointed out, it can't be primarily for fellowship. That is better had in Heaven. It can't be primarily to further our understanding of God's truth. That, too, would be better done in Heaven. It can't be primarily for worship. Again, Heaven. Therefore, according to the Gospel of Matthew, the reason why we are still here is primarily to make disciples.

The sermon then ripped-up the consciences of the congregation by demanding us to consider, are we living in obedience to the great commission of Jesus Christ?

An audio recording of the sermon should be available here soon.
