In the end, the pleasures of this life mock us because they are fleeting. The writer of Ecclesiastes knew this and concluded that our relationship with God is what brings true and eternal meaning. Alistair Begg ends his study in Ecclesiastes by showing us that the most significant decision in life is to fear God by believing in Christ. This enables us to obey His commandments so that we can become useful servants of His kingdom.
Chasing The Wind
Trapped in a dark world without God, the writer of Ecclesiastes searches frantically for some light on the path. Indulging in everything this world has to offer leaves him empty and unfulfilled. After climbing high on the ladder of life, he makes the tragic discovery that it was propped against the wrong wall. Growing cynical about life’s achievements, he begins to question the rationale behind everything. These studies touch the pulse of a generation caught between material prosperity and spiritual poverty. Alistair Begg helps us make sense of this relevant book, so that we can live life with purpose and meaning. In order to do this, we must first discover what it means to fear God, which is the beginning of true wisdom.
