Sermon Notes 23 January 2021
Mr Ng Zhiwen/Mr Danny Chua
A Time for Everything
A Time for Every Matter Under Heaven (3:1-8)
Is time really in our hands?
Eternity in Man’s Heart (3:9-15)
What exactly has God done from the beginning to the end?
From Dust to Dust (3:16-22)
Can we really see what comes after us?
Closing Thoughts: So, what then for our present time under the sun?
Questions for Reflection
- How do you view time in your life? How have you tried to ‘control’ time? How does the Preacher challenge your view?
- What does 3:11 mean – why has God set eternity in our hearts so that we can’t find out what He has done from beginning to the end?
- What does God do that endures forever (3:14)? How does God’s enduring work shape our present life under the sun, which eventually returns to dust (3:20)?
- Read James 4:13-17. What does the author say that reminds us of Ecclesiastes 3? Why?
