ECCLESIASTES

Anything But Trite:
An Honest Quest for Meaning in Life

Can faith survive honesty? Ecclesiastes was written before Christ, but even after Christ, we who know Him still wrestle with the way the world is. God is sovereign, but life is hard. All creation is subjected to futility: it groans and we groan too (Romans 8:20-22). Things just don't turn out the way they should. For all our sophistication, we still often feel like a child, lost in the fog, searching for meaning. The writer of Ecclesiastes cried out for something new. In the fullness of time, God answered his call and sent Christ. Christ broke the power of reigning sin, and because of His work, soon it will be death that's dying. Christ is the wisdom God gives us that enables us to eat, drink, and enjoy our work until the dawn rises, for we know the dawn will rise. Can faith survive honesty? Yes, because of Christ. We can acknowledge the pain and futility of life in a fallen world. We can also acknowledge hope.
