God has answers to life's questions

POSTED: May 3, 2010 2:42 p.m.
Man, it seems, has always had questions about something since the beginning of time. Some have sailed the oceans to search for new lands just to answer the question, “What is out there?” Others have searched the world over to find the answer to the questions of life.
Today, men still seek for answers to questions of life, questions of death and questions of purpose. The Bible tells of one who searched for answers to his inquiries. The man was Solomon. As one reads the writings of Solomon in Ecclesiastes and in Proverbs, it is readily seen that he did what he set out to do. When he had finished his experiments he realized something, something that he knew before he ever started his trek. “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man” (Ecclesiastes 12:13).
The same is true today, no matter how far advance man has come in technology or education. God holds the answer to all man’s questions. If one has questions about this life and how to be successful in this life, God’s book the Bible has the answer. If man wonders about death and what is beyond the grave, God’s book has the answer to those questions also.
How can a person be successful in this life? Notice this passage: “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Mat.6:33).
How then can man be successful in the next life? By doing what it takes to be truly successful in this life, put your trust in God and obey Him. If a person follows God’s word, not adding to it nor subtracting from it he will be prepared for eternity.
The answers to man’s questions are; God created life, He desires man to love and worship Him. He provides for man here, and He has provided a place for man to spend eternity. Man must do what he can here, as to labour, (he just can’t sit back and expect God to do everything for him, it was not that way even in the Garden of Eden i.e. Gen. 2:15) and man must obey God in order to spend eternity in heaven (Heb. 5:8, 9).
Remember the words of the wise man Solomon, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man” (Ecclesiastes 12:13).
