(Ecclesiastes 2:1-11) The "Preacher" of Ecclesiastes continues his quest for the meaning of life in a predictable place: the unrestrained pursuit of pleasure. While he succeeds in tasting the best life has to offer, it still comes up short in the end. In this sermon from Ecclesiastes 2:1-11, we explore several reasons why pleasure fails to satisfy, and how the cross of Jesus delivers us from this vain pursuit “under the sun” while also redeeming the genuine pleasures of life before the face of God.
“How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”” (Romans 10:14–15)
