Sermons on Ecclesiastes
Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 King James Version (KJV) 13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. 14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
This sermon takes a look at what the Fear of God means when we apply it to our lives.
Ecclesiastes 12:10–14 (NASB95) 10The Preacher sought to find delightful words and to write words of truth correctly. 11The words of wise men are like goads, and masters of these collections are like well-driven nails; they are given by one Shepherd. 12But beyond this, my son, be warned: the writing of many books is endless, and excessive devotion to books is wearying to the body. 13The conclusion, when all has been heard, is: fear God and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person. 14For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil.
At some point in our lives, all of us wrestle with the following questions: What makes life matter? How do I make my life count? How do I make 2013 better than 2012? What do I do when I get bored with my life, my career or my marriage? How do I find meaning so it's worth getting out of bed and doing something? As we kick off 2013 at Revolution Church, we are starting a brand new series called Meaning where we will tackle these questions and many more like them.
