Sunday 05.07.17 (looking for joy)

This Sunday, we’ll continue our journey through Ecclesiastes and consider the right and wrong places to look for joy in life, as Solomon tested pleasure, wisdom, and work and found them each meaningless without God. Then on Sunday night, we’ll make up last week’s Attributes of God lesson with a look at God’s omnipotence. We hope to see you there!

Schedule
@945 Small Groups / Sunday School for all ages

Sermon Notes
Looking for Joy in All the Wrong Places ~ Ecclesiastes 2:1-26

Solomon tested the limits of pleasure, wisdom, and work to see if they would bring him joy and meaning in life, yet found each lacking. Instead, to find joy, we should:

  • Delight in God more than you delight in the pleasures of the world (2:1-11)
  • Seek to be wise in eternal ways and not merely temporary ways (2:12-17)
  • Work for the glory of God more than for personal gain (2:18-26)
