This will be a 12 week series through the book of Ecclesiastes. This book is so important even today as it looks at all the pursuits of life (pleasure, wisdom, money, power, work, etc) to find meaning and all of it is meaningless. Solomon, the writer, consistently points to the fact that there is nothing new under the sun, and instead of being weary from worry and vain pursuits we should find our joy in God who has created all things and is sovereign over all things. To the one who fears God, he/she can truly enjoy all God has given us whether good or bad because God alone is enough for us. The aim of this book is to get us beyond the sun. To live for Christ, with hearts satisfied in Him alone. When Christ is central, then we can rightly enjoy the things in life without making them gods or saviors in our lives. The world has gone after these things as ultimate for satisfaction and life. Solomon has had it all, and warns that all these pursuits are vain pursuits. We all die and we all leave as we came — with nothing. To the ones who fear the Lord, they leave the same way, but there is life for them beyond the sun. Our hope is Christ alone!
