What is the meaning of life? What matters in life? Solomon set out to discover the meaning of life. His quest, is recorded in the book of Ecclesiastes.
He tries pleasure but that doesn’t bring fulfillment. He tries building barns but that doesn’t bring fulfillment. He tries wealth but that doesn’t bring it.
Then, at the conclusion of his quest he says, “Here now is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his commands, for this is everyone’s duty. God will judge us for everything we do, including every secret thing, whether good or bad.”
Fear God & keep His commandments. That’s the conclusion Solomon came to.
What does it mean to fear God? It means to recognize the holiness and power of God. To put God first. When we do that, we will keep God’s commands.
Today, live your life understanding the holiness of God. In order to do that, you must first know Christ as your Savior. Have you trusted Christ as your Savior? If not, I encourage you too and then, live for God.
There is a quote that reads, “Today’s choices will take me down one of two passes; Either I will travel the path of becoming more like Christ or the one of becoming less like Christ.”
Today, join me in becoming more like Christ.
