There is one thing that is true for every single one of us, no matter how good or bad a life we live, one day we will die. That is a thought that in our culture we tend to run away from, but it is critical that we acknowledge it because knowing that we will die, says the teacher, ought to shape the way that we live.

How should we respond to authorities? What should our posture be towards those who are in authority? Is there ever a time to rebel against the authorities that God has placed over us? These are some of the questions The Teacher seeks to answer in this section. One thing we can know for certain, no matter who appears to be in charge in this world, God alone rules over all things and even though we may not always be able to see of understand what He is doing, we can trust Him.

It might appear that the teacher in this section is calling people to pursue a life of moderation. One where we try to walk a balance It might appear that the teacher in this section is calling people to pursue a life of moderation. One where we try to walk a balance of being perceived as either a “sinner” or a “saint.” Instead, the warning here is that there are two dangers we can fall into in life, living a life of destructive licentiousness or a life of self-righteous legalism. In truth no amount of sin will satisfy us and no amount of “saintly” behaviour is able to save us from death only the righteousness of Jesus is able to save us.

One thing is certain living in this world, sooner or later life gets hard. No matter how hard we may try to avoid the troubles of this world, sooner or later those troubles will find us. So how do we respond when adversity hits? How should we live when life gets hard? The Teacher has some wisdom to offer us that we won’t find in the world. First, live in denial about your mortality. Second, embrace correction. Third don’t take the easy way out. Even in the difficult times God is in control and you can trust him.

One of the blessings of Ecclesiastes is the Teachers constant reminder that God has given us good gifts to enjoy under the sun. However, those gifts can easily become gods. When gifts become gods not only will we not find the security and satisfaction we are looking for we also won’t be able to enjoy what God gives us to enjoy. When we search for that which can only be found in our creator in what he was created the end result is misery.

March 31 2024 – EASTER SUNDAY | Full Service (C)

On Easter Sunday we celebrate that Christ didn’t stay dead. It isn’t just the meaningfulness of his death that changes everything for us, it’s the fact that because he lives we too will live! As 2 Corinthians 5:15 says since “he died for all . . . those who live should no longer live for themselves but for the one who died for them and was raised.” The fact we serve both a crucified AND resurrected saviour means we can be made new and we have a new purpose in this world, to live out the mission of reconciliation he has passed on to us as his ambassadors.

At the beginning of Chapter 5 the teacher gives instruction about how we ought to worship. The Teacher wants us to know that real worship, meaningful worship, doesn’t start with our mouths but with our ears. More than ritualistic praises, he longs for followers who give Him thoughtful attention and obedience.

Human beings have a hard-wired desire for justice. Yet we live in a world filled with injustice. We live in a world where so often evil seems to go unpunished, where the powerful oppress the weak and there seems to be no consequence. How do we make sense of this? Is this simply the way of the world? As the teacher observe the unjust nature of the world he takes solace in the fact that there is a just and righteous God who will not allow the injustice that takes place under the sun to go unpunished.
