SERIES TITLE: What About Eternity?

PART ONE:  Everness

TEXT:  Ecclesiastes 3:10-11

INTRODUCTION.

This five part series explores some of what the Bible reveals is ahead for those whose trust is in Christ. Jesus spoke frequently of this future existence. Through his words and other portions of Scripture we see why we long for eternity, what it will be like, and how we need to live until then.

DISCUSSION

When Americans today hear the word “heaven”, how do you think they would describe it and why?

EXAMINATION.

V.10 What is the “burden” God has laid on men?

Do you think the “burden” refers to what is said in vv.1-9 or in v.11? Why? 

V.11 In what way has God made everything beautiful in its time?

The Hebrew word “eternity” is olam, which means “forever”, “unending future.” How has God put this into human hearts?

Vv.12-13 The writer draws this conclusion. What do you think of it and how can it be misunderstood?

APPLICATION.

  • When have you experienced a longing for more than this world can provide and what was it like?
  • How and why would God have that longing satisfied in heaven? (Consider 2 Corinthians 5:1-2 and Romans 8:22-23)
  • How do you guard against living a dissatisfied, unfulfilled, or unproductive life on this earth, if full satisfaction won’t be found until eternity?
  • Jesus offers abundant, full, complete life (John 10:10). What does that look like?
  • Fact: What is a key truth that you understood from this passage?
  • React: What did you feel?
  • Act: What are you going to do?
