"...Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path..." - Psalm 119:105

April 16 – ECCLESIASTES 12

BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE: “Remember also your creator in the days of your youth, before the evil days come and the years draw near of which you will say, I have no pleasure in them …” (v.1) Remembering God does not mean merely thinking about Him occasionally. It means to relate to Him, walk with Him, discover Him, learn to know Him while you are young. A life without God can produce bitterness, loneliness, and hopelessness in old age. A life centered around God is fulfilling and can be richer and more bearable than one without Him if we are faced with disabilities, sickness or handicaps. Being young is exciting. But the excitement of youth can become a barrier to closeness with God if it makes young people focus on passing pleasures instead of eternal values. Make your strength available to God when it is still yours—during your youthful days. Seek God now! THE CONCLUSION OF THE WHOLE MATTER: “Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of mam.” (12:13) Everything depends upon that word fear. It’s not a term of abject terror, of running from God, or of seeing Him as a threat. Fear means that we have complete faith in His existence and His work in our lives. Fear begins with faith in God. (Hebrews 11:6) Fear means that we experience His grace. You never can properly fear God until you have learned what kind of a God He is. He is a God of mercy, of grace, of forgiveness. Until you have stood before Him and felt your guilt, acknowledged it, and heard Him say to your heart, “Neither do I condemn you… Go now and leave your life of sin” (John 8:11), you will never be able to properly fear God. One element of fear is the experience of the wonder of forgiveness, that God forgives and sends you out with a whole new purpose and future. Fear of God mean that we stand in awe at the majesty, the wisdom, and the wonder of God. What a mighty God we serve! He created all things and holds all things together by the power of His own hand. Fear of God means that we resolve to do what He says, to keep His commandments, as the Solomon puts it. There are only two commandments; Jesus Himself said that. All the law and the prophets hang on two things: First, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” (Matthew 22:37) That is in response to His love already shown to you; love Him because He first loved you. Second, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
