scripture 2 Timothy 2:7-10
topics Christian Thinking, Jesus Christ, Suffering
type Sermon
id 3036

Some things are easy to understand. Other things require some thinking on our part before we grasp what we’re reading or hearing.

The final chapter of Ecclesiastes calls us to fear God and commit ourselves to Him. As Alistair Begg demonstrates, this chapter details for the audience the opportunity of youth, the frailty of life, the reality of death, and the certainty of judgment. Into a culture of abject meaninglessness that is not unlike our own, Ecclesiastes also gives us something to live for.

Each person is constantly interpreting their world through a grid, through a specific lens. Kevin DeYoung contrasts viewing life through the lens of fairness contra the glasses of grace. Taking us to the Parable of the Vineyard Laborers in Matthew 20, Kevin takes the three questions at the end of Jesus' famous parable to help expose how often the pastor's heart can give into viewing life through the lens of fairness rather than the glasses of grace.

In an increasingly unsettled world, it benefits us to heed the words of the Psalmist and trust wholly in his God. Man is mortal and unable to save himself; it is foolish to trust in anyone or anything but God. Alistair Begg encourages us to entrust everything to the Maker of heaven and earth.
