The End of the Matter

Jan 11, 2015 By: Pastor Joseph LoSardo Series: Under the Sun Scripture: Ecclesiastes 12:8-14
Ecclesiastes ends here; however, with the full light of the New Testament shining on it, the book does have a gracious purpose in pointing us to the gospel. While the Old Testament leaves us with a curse in light of the law and its ensuing judgment, the New Testament reveals to us the purpose of law and judgment is ultimately to lead us to Christ who can alone save us from the wrath of God. Because the Son of God took on human flesh and dwelled in this vain world, living the perfect life that was man’s failed duty, and taking upon Himself the judgment that our failure incurred, today we can be assured that His victory will save us from the vanity of death and the grave. And for the Christian, that is the end of the matter.
