Finding Hope 3 - Living Like It Counts (Ecc 3:1-13)

18 February, 2024 Rev Ken Graham

How can we live our lives so they really count?

1. Realise that God has a Purpose for both the Good and the Bad Times of my Life.

Scripture tells us if God is the Centre of our lives, then even the

Mundane and Routine parts of life are Important.

2. When I Embrace Faith in the Confusing Times of my life.

Only when we learn to Trust God when we don’t understand everything that’s Happening can begin to live life like it Counts.

3. When I Use the Present Time to do Good.

God’s desire is for us to make Proper Use of this life.

4. Cherish all my Time as God’s Gift.

The Time we have is a Gift from the hand of God.

Cherish your time as a Gift from God.

5. When we Recognise we will have to Account for our Time.

We are Responsible for what we do with our time and our life.

Time is a most Precious commodity, more Important than Money.

There are 4 questions we can ask ourselves every day to help us:

1. What can I Learn from this moment?

2. What Good can I Do in this moment?

3. How can I Enjoy this moment?

4. How can I Trust God in this moment?


Finding Hope 2 - Accept God's Gift

11 February, 2024 Rev Ken Graham

There is just one, basic message, that needs to be proclaimed:

It is in 4 simple words: You Matter To God.

God so Loved the World that he Gave.

1. Let me encourage you to Unwrap God’s Gift of Joy.

Don’t be Afraid.

There is Good News and Great Joy.

2. Let me encourage you to Unwrap God’s Gift of Hope.

Our greatest need as human beings is to be Forgiven.

That’s why God sent us a Saviour and Lord.

We need both in our lives:

A Saviour - Someone who can deal with our Guilt.

A Lord - Someone who can give us Direction.

There are 3 reasons we need a Saviour:

a. We need Forgiveness from the Past.

b. We need Freedom from our personal Problems and Struggles that mess up the Present.

c. We need Fulfillment in Eternity.

3. Let me encourage you to Unwrap God’s Gift of Peace.

Peace with God, gives us the Peace of God, which allows us to have Peace in our Relationships with others.
