Sermon Starter from Ecclesiastes

“Truly the light is sweet, And it is pleasant for the eyes to behold the sun; 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” (Ecclesiastes 11:7-8). 

Introduction:

A. Lay out the purpose of Ecclesiastes.

B. Trace the role of the sun in Ecclesiastes.

Three Points:

1. Christians should value the blessings of walking in the light (John 8:12; 1 John 1:7; Ephesians 1:3).

2. Christians should remember the lessons of the darkness [when we have sinned & come through challenges by God’s grace and mercy] (Romans 12:1-2).

3. Christians should be preparing for the future and be ready for judgment (Revelation 20:11-15).

I will leave the rest to you.
