I’m preaching through the book of Ecclesiastes. Well, I’m preaching the 12 chapters of the book in 8 weeks. Thus, we are not hitting every verse in worship – but we are digesting what “the preacher” has to tell us.
I’m currently preparing to preach the fourth installment of the series over Ecclesiastes 5:8-20. I love Ecclesiastes because it provides an honest outlook on life. No filter.
The preacher provides an honest outlook on life but it’s a life apart from Christ. Which brings me to the point of this post …
As I read the headlines, everything from ISIS to mid-term elections, I wonder how many of the conclusions we come to are conclusions apart from Christ? I wonder how many of the statements we make have nothing to do with the things of Christ? I wonder how much of our lives are built on a foundation apart from Christ?
Jesus said, “Apart from me you can do nothing (John 15:5).”
