Death Comes to Us All (Ecclesiastes 8:16-9:6)

“This is how the Christian life works: it is not just about what we get at the end, but also what we become along the way. Discipleship is a journey, and not merely a destination.” —Philip Ryken

  1. We will not get all our questions answered in this life.
  2. God has the whole world in his hands.

“Each one of us, without regard for what we’ve done in life, or whom we know, or what place we might occupy in our society—each one is in the hand of God, and he decides for each of us just what will be for us throughout our lives.” —T.M. Moore

  1. Generally speaking, God seems to treat everyone the same.
  2. It’s better to be alive than dead.
