Ecclesiastes – The Illusion of Control

Ecclesiastes – The Illusion of Control

Thanks for joining us online at Cornerstone! Today we continue our 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 3, and we learn that God is truly in control and we are not. We only have an illusion of control in our lifetime.

Sermon Notes:

Control is only an illusion in life

God is the only one who truly sees and understands the events of our life
