Attention Funnel: What Decade Did that Take Place??

 Introduction:

  • The final way that God is different than us that we are going to look at is that God is eternal.
  • God is not bound by time. He has no beginning and end.
  • This is obviously different then us. We are dominated by time. We have 24 hours, 7 days, 12 months, and perhaps 70-90 years. That’s it.
  • It is impossible to escape time.
    • One year, I decided I was going to try to do it. My goal was to never look at a clock for the entire year. I would just set alarms on my phone telling me when the next thing was there for me to do. I quickly realized how foolish this was, not only because I would have to look at a clock to set my alarms, but also because I would spend so much time trying not to look at what time it was that I would end up wasting a lot of my time.
  • One of the most well-known passages on time is found in Ecclesiastes chapter 3. It’s a passage quoted at funerals, in well-known songs, and by famous movie characters.
  • And it’s a passage that teaches us to learn to live not only under the rule of time, but under the rule of the one who controls all time.

 Passage: Ecclesiastes 3:1-15

 Big Idea: The timeless God orders all of our times.

 Main Points:

  • Our lives are full of good and bad times.
  • Because God is outside time, He orders all our times.
  • We can live as ones who know the ending.
  • We can know the ending because the incomparable God became one of us.
