Sermon 19 May 2019

Why are you here? by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  We are here to do the works of God.  To do His works we must know Him, know what is important to Him, and know what He wants for each of us and from each of us.  We are called to do greater works than Jesus did, but that is impossible unless we have the same attitude He did and are under authority as He was.  Faith is not commanding the circumstances of life to line up with our expectations; faith is living every moment of our lives in subjection to the authority of God.  Is that why you are here?
