2022-12-17 “Let Us Obey God Both Pleasing Him and Fulfilling Our Destiny”(Ecclesiastes 12:13-14)

Let Us Obey God Both Pleasing Him and Fulfilling Our Destiny 讓我們聽從神既討祂喜悦又履行我們的定數“(Ecclesiastes 傳道書 12:13-14)

Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.


This is the only place in Ecclesiastes where God’s commandments are mentioned. Writing from a common but false premise of life lived without consideration of eternity and the eternal God, Solomon carefully thought through (and lived through) it and now came to understand/conclude that it was worth it to obey God and this obedience both pleased God and fulfilled the destiny of mankind. There is, and will be, an eternal accounting for everything we do, including every hidden thing whether it is good or evil, that everything has meaning and importance, both for the present and for eternity.


Prayer: Sovereign God of Wisdom, if you care as much as giving your one and only Son Jesus Christ that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life, nothing can be pointless. Thank you for your love, grace and wisdom that whoever lives by your truth/commandments comes into light so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through you. Amen.

禱告: 至高無上、智慧之神啊,若你關顧到甚至賜下你的獨生子耶穌基督,叫一切信祂的,不至滅亡,反得永生這樣多的程度,沒有東西能是無目的意義的。感謝你的仁愛、恩典和智慧,凡行你真理/誡命的,就來接近光,好顯明他所作的都是靠著你而作的。阿們。
