Ecclesiastes 11:7-8 (NKJV) 7 Truly the light is sweet, And it is pleasant for the eyes to behold the sun; 8 But if a man lives many years And rejoices in them all, Yet let him remember the days of darkness, For they will be many. All that is coming is vanity.
Each day is precious. Life is worth living because Jesus Christ is alive. To feel the warmth of the sun is rejuvenating. To gaze at the sun is pleasant. The bright and shining days of youth is exciting and vibrant. To be young and full of life is enjoyable. But no matter how great a vivacious life may be, someday old age will come. Life slows down because of the aches and pains that comes with old age. Therefore, the days of youth is fleeting because old age is inevitable. This is why a life without Christ is empty and futile. A life lived only for self is vanity. But a life with Christ is fulfilling and purposeful. “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is man’s all. For God will bring every work into judgment, Including every secret thing, Whether good or evil” (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 NKJV). The wise thing to do is to reverence, worship and obey God. To live a life grounded on faith in Christ. “For God will bring every work into judgment.” This is why we need a Savior. We need Jesus Christ, for He bore our sins on the cross. He died a substitutional sacrificial death for us. Jesus bore our judgment. But if our sins remain on us, then we will face God at the Great White Throne for judgment. And the penalty for sin is death. My friend, are you searching for answers to the problems of life? The answer is not in this world. Rather Jesus is the answer for the world today. A life lived for Christ is fulfilling and purposeful. And it is a life that will never grow old, for it is eternal. We will enjoy God forever. My friend, find fulfillment and purpose in glorifying God. Submit yourself to God, obey His commandments, keep your eyes on Jesus, and get to know Christ and the Father who sent Him. Follow God’s purpose for your life, and you will experience true and lasting joy of the abundant life that God desires for you.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
