    Fear God (Ecclesiastes 12:9-14)
    This is the final message in the 36 part series on Ecclesiastes & Philippians. We reach our final destination this morning which is to "fear God and keep His commands." In this message we identify the various ways in which fear of God is manifested (both unhealthy fear and healthy fear) and close by looking at ways to cultivate a healthy fear of God.

    Dying Well (Ecclesiastes 12:1-8)
    In this penultimate message in Ecclesiastes, we are at the other end of the spectrum from last week. At the end of chapter 11 we heard about the hope and inspiration that young people have to live for the Lord and pursue His glory. The Teacher offers a sobering warning this week that aging and death will soon take away their youth. Just as we are called to not waste our lives, this week we learn that we shouldn't waste our death either.

    Trust God (Philippians 4:10-20)
    We jump to our companion study in Philippians this week to follow up our message on taking faith-filled risks. We learn this week that God will supply our needs so that we can endure all things through Christ. So regardless of the outcome of your risk (be it success or "failure") you can find that Jesus is enough for you. This becomes a motivation for us to take risks for the glory of Christ.

    Live Life (Ecclesiastes 9:1-10)
    We return to our study in Ecclesiastes entering into the final destination. In this section of the book the Teacher offers practical points to help you arrive safely at the end of the quest. Practical Point #1 is simply to enjoy this life God has given us. Too often we allow ourselves to grumble, whine and complain about the good and the bad in our lives. The Teacher says life is too short for that. Instead enjoy life as the gift it is and do everything you do with all of your strength.
