Welcome to Eastern Hills Baptist Church
We are so glad that you decided to join us in worship today. Here at Eastern Hills we realize that we are all in different places on our journey with Christ, and that's okay. Whether you are a seeker, looking for answers, or a long-time follower of Christ, you are welcome here.
"What in the world can bring meaning to life?"
Today's Points:

1) The Conclusion: "Futility!" (v. 2)

2) The Basic Question: "What can we gain?" (v. 3)

3) The Evidence: The seemingly endless cycle of life (vv. 4-8)

4) The Escape: The hope of something new (v 9-11)

Promised Newness in Messiah:

A new name (Isa. 62:2)
New heavens and a new earth (Isa. 66:22)
A new covenant (Jer. 31:31)
A new spirit (Eze. 11:19)
A new heart (and a new spirit) (Eze. 36:26)
This passage is not a contradiction to the gospel but a call for it. The world is in bondage; and humanity is unable to explain, find satisfaction in, or alter it. Only the Word, who came into the world from above, can open the way of understanding and escape. He has done a new thing: he has created a new covenant, given the new birth, new life, and a new commandment. He gives a new name that will last forever. Everything else is old and passing away.

—Duane A. Garrett; Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs (NAC)
For discussion this week:

-- What is one thing that you enjoy doing that is completely meaningless?
-- What is one thing that you DON'T enjoy doing that you feel is completely meaningless, but you HAVE to do it anyway?
-- How would you respond to the question, "What in the world can bring meaning to life?"
