Ecclesiastes – Searching for the Meaning of Life

Ecclesiastes – Searching for the Meaning of Life

Today we start a brand new sermon series learning from the book of Ecclesiastes. What is the purpose of life? Why are we here? Is there more to this life than just going through the same routine day after day? In Ecclesiastes, we learn that life is like a vapor and that ultimately, our lives are about eternity. Since God is the one who gives ultimate meaning in life, we find our meaning in Him. Today, we study Ecclesiastes chapter 1, and we learn about how we all are on a search for meaning in life.
