Text: Ecclesiastes 3

 

God’s Rule Over Time is Eternally Comprehensive (3:1-8)

  • The statements in these verses give the full range of the human experience after the Fall in Genesis 3.
  • From birth to death and everything in between, there are no gaps in God’s sovereignty and His plan of redemption.

God’s Rule Over Time is Eternally Providential (3:9-15)

  • God has created everything for His glorious purpose; therefore, He will make all things beautiful according to His time.
  • God has put eternity in our finite hearts; therefore, our toil only makes sense and brings joy when it is God-centered.

God’s Rule Over Time is Eternally Just (3:16-22)

  • God stands as the eternal Judge over all; therefore, He will execute justice according to His will.
  • In the end, death comes to us all; instead of living in denial, we must be prepared for it.
