Sermons about Ecclesiastes
Solomon, the great preacher and teacher of Ecclesiastes tells us to realize there is absolutely nothing new under the sun... what has been will be again; it may take on different colors, textures or other outward things, but really if people are involved, it is yet one more round of how humans are and will be... Enter Jehovah... He is as constant as we are fickle. Psalm 85 explores His commitment to us from before time to His return as a conquering Messiah King. Verses 1 and 2 just set the stage...
What is the way to heaven? How can we be sure? Where is the proof? What are the options?
As we finish our series in Ecclesiastes, we listen to testimonies from people who have been changed by God's power in light of Solomon's wisdom.
Ecclesiastes is filled with reminders of the struggles of life. But chapters 8 and 9 offer hope and remind us of the simple joys of life.
Psalm 16:2 says, "You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you." We know pursuing righteousness is good, but too often we're actually pursuing righteousness for our own gain.
What is wisdom? Is it just the ability to make good decisions? Maybe it's like cleaning the dirt off your glasses, allowing you to see things for what they really are - tools used by God to sanctify you and deepen your love for Christ.
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases. Even in our darkest times, we find our peace simply from being in the presence of the Lord.
While Ecclesiastes frequently talks about how meaningless life is, Solomon offers the antidote: fear God. But what does that mean? And how does it change our perspective?
It's tempting to read Ecclesiastes and only see despair. Solomon says we are just like the beasts of the earth, "All are from the dust, and to dust all return." So why are we here? God provides our purpose in everything we do. And he didn't intend for us to navigate life alone, but in relationships and community.
Ecclesiastes says plainly that there is a season for everything in life. But instead of this being a cause for pessimism, we see events and seasons in our life as ingredients God is using to create something beautiful, and something eternal.
