Ecclesiastes – Week 5

The wise know death is coming

Chapters 9 and 10

  1. Everything is Meaningless!
  2. Obey God!
  3. Death is Coming!

These are three of the major themes of the book of Ecclesiastes.  How then should we respond?  Consider these two quotes.

 


“If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world.”

~ C.S Lewis

 

“The world is in trouble, and it needs your help.  The church is in trouble, and it needs your help.  Christ cared deeply for the world and His church, and indeed for every single soul withing creation.  He did not give any of His believers a pass on the work of the world; He called them into it.

Some people have the talent to change the direction of the world.  Some people have the talent to change the direction of the church.  All of us have the abilities to change the directions of individual lives.

And we are accountable to do so.”

~ Hugh Hewitt

 

Lewis’ conclusion is timeless. Look forward to Heaven! Death is coming!

Hewitt’s admonition timely. Start changing the world now! Death is coming!
