Psalm 145:4 says "Each generation will announce to the next your wonderful and powerful deed". There is much to tell to the next generation - how Jesus powerfully saves and transforms lives, how He still heals and delivers and brings us out of our old lives and makes us new.

Summer Sunday Sermon Series:
'YOU... and YOUR IDENTITY in Christ'
10:00 AM... Sunday mornings through July
Follow the Instructions
Read Ecclesiastes 8:1 through 12:14
When it comes to assembling an item, people appreciate uncomplicated instructions that walk them through five easy steps—not at all like instructions that come in booklet form with Steps 1 to 85.
When leaders give clear and concise directions, their workers usually do the job more efficiently. Short and to the point is more effective than a labyrinth of confusing instructions.
After trying all kinds of things to bring happiness—things that proved meaningless—the author of Ecclesiastes finally discovered what God knew would bring him the greatest joy. And the two easy steps are really quite simple:
Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind (Ecclesiastes 12:13).
These instructions are given so we can enjoy the life God offers those who put their faith in Him—clear and concise directions for how He expects us to live.
Thought for Today: How could God’s simple instructions to fear Him and keep His commandments change me?
Quicklook: Ecclesiastes 12:9–14
