“The Lord is the First and the Last”

Ecclesiastes 11

9 Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment

Rev Friedel Stegen took the service from Eccl 11:9, “You who are young, be happy while you are young, and let your heart give you joy in the days of your youth. Follow the ways of your heart and whatever your eyes see, but know that for all these things God will bring you into judgment.”

The Lord is the First and the Last. He gives us life and is the first in our lives. And one day the Lord will come again and will be the last. He gave life one day and will take my life. God has our lives in His Hand, but He gives us the opportunity to choose the way we want to life. God does not force anybody. But remember, one day you have to give account for the life the Lord gave you. We need to live according to God’s will. All I need to do is that what God wants me to do. If we one day will stand before His throne, He will ask what life we did live. According to that He will judge us. I must choose every day the good or the bad. It is easy because the Lord gave us His 10 commandments and the Holy Spirit who leads us in all the truth. A wise person will live a life that brings one to my Lord and Savior. The devil will work in people’s lives that they choose the bad things. But may our lives bring glory to God. The Lord created us for a purpose. Let Jesus come in your heart. Do not harden your heart.
