WHY ARE WE HERE?
RUSTY (Rusty and Piper enter) Piper, why are we here?
PIPER We’re here to be in church. The Lord wants us to be in church
so we can learn more about Him.
RUSTY I know that, but why did God make people?
PIPER Hmmm . . . That’s a good question, Rusty! I’ve thought about
that, too! I tell you what, let’s ask Grandpa. (Looks towards
audience) Maybe you boys and girls would like to know the
answer to that question, too! On the count of three, let’s all yell
“Grandpa!” One . . . two . . . three . . .
GRANDPA (Enters) Well, well, well, what’s all the commotion about?
PIPER We want to know why God made people.
GRANDPA Hmmm . . . That’s a good question, Piper! I’ve heard people say
that God was lonely, so He made people to keep Him company,
but I believe that God made them to worship Him. Piper, when
Christians go to heaven, do you think that they will be just standing
GRANDPA What will they be doing?
PIPER They will be singing praises to God, worshipping Him and talking
about all the wonderful things that He has done.
GRANDPA Do you believe that they should be doing these things, now?
PIPER Why, yes, Grandpa!
GRANDPA Jesus wants everyone to worship Him. He knocks on their
heart’s door, so He might enter in and be a part of their life. It’s
just sad that so many people ignore it or don’t want to be saved.
Revelation 3:20 says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if
any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him,
and sup with him, and he with Me.” Only people who have trusted
Christ as their Savior can truly worship God!
RUSTY Thanks, Grandpa! I see that if God didn’t make people, then they
wouldn’t be here! Since God did make them, they should be very
GRANDPA I think you understand it very well, Rusty! Well, I better be going
now, see you later! (All say good byes and exit)
