CD: Ecclesiastes: Life Under the Sun (6 Part Series)
Solomon had known God but turned away from God in his later years and developed an outlook on life that was Godless and meaningless. You know some people do not finish well. We think our best years are behind us. We begin to take off some of the disciplines and the restraints that have been necessary to wholesome living. And Solomon's downfall was the old traps of sex and greed. You can't get more empty, more depressed than this. Ecclesiastes is a depressing book because it is written by a depressed man.
And the good thing about this book is that as Solomon explores all these avenues, as he writes all these despairing comments about a humanistic view of life, he comes back and at the end he says, this is the whole duty of man: "Fear God and keep his commandments." The question is, "How are you spiritually?". Perhaps looking into this ancient book is like looking into a mirror where you say, "This is me". This shows courage and humility. Ecclesiastes wonderfully gives us the answer too "Remember your Creator".
In this inspiring six part series, Charles Price shares the hope that is the Word of God, and encourages His sheep to get back to God.
