The Steadfast Engine

The Steadfast Engine Sermon Audio Here


Ecclesiastes 12:9-14
To Deal With Despair, Remember

The Point to Our Purpose
Ecc. 12:9-14 After all is said and done, WHY?

  • v9/10 gather wisdom to give it away
  • v11 given wisdom is from the Shepherd
  • v13 “the whole of man” not duty, but purpose
  • – to love God is why we’re here!

The Steadfastness of the Shepherd
John 10:11-18 look at who He is; what He does; and what He has

  • who He is: v11,14 He is the good Shepherd (protector, provider, pathfinder)
  • what He does: v14,15 He knows us, He knows the Father, He lays His life down for us
  • what He has: v16,18 He has ONE flock, He has ONE life, He has authority lay it down and take it up (cf. 10:10) ABUNDANT LIFE!

Mars Rover Opportunity was only designed to function for 90 days using solar power. When its solar collectors got covered by dust, it would shut down; whenever a strong wind would blow the dust off, it could once again receive energy from the sun. It’s now been going almost 11 years past its expected duration.

Our lesson: no matter how tough life gets, let the wind blow, and stay in the Son!
