Through my study of the book of Ecclesiastes, the LORD reminded me of fundamental truths that have shaped my view of daily life, ministry, personal growth, and success. In this set of post I will tell you all about it.
I needed this. Because of the way I am wired, I needed to be reminded of certain truths and realities. While studying Ecclesiastes, God the Holy Spirit retooled me, He sharpened my rough edges, and fine-tuned my vision.
No, I am not perfect now.
And yes, I am still fighting my own sin and the realities of this life.
But I am better prepared to find the meaning of my delights and sorrows within the context of life, eternity, redemption.
This – His work of reconciliation in me – does not make the pain to go away. And, very often, it doesn’t make it easier to handle it, either. But it gives me the right way to see it. This vision has three main components:
- God is LORD over all and over everything.
- For the things that really matter, I am deadly limited.
- The things that really matter are eternal.
- And eternity is coming sooner that expected
- My engagement in this life honors the Triune God of the Universe
This ancient intelligence has been beneficial for me, and I hope it may do the same for you.
