2 Corinthians 4:16-5:11

You Only Live Once

slide2

Ecclesiastes proves that nothing in this world will ever satisfy

    • Solomon sought satisfaction, meaning & purpose by following YOLO
    • Concluded all this life offers is vanity & grasping for the wind
  • YOLO failed in the pursuit of worldly pursuits (1:3-11)
  • YOLO failed in the pursuit of worldly philosophy(1:12-18)
  • YOLO failed in the pursuit of worldly power (3:1-5:20)
  • YOLO failed in the pursuit of worldly popularity (4:13-16)
  • YOLO failed in the pursuit of worldly piety (5:1-6)
  • YOLO failed in the pursuit of worldly possessions (2:4-9; 5:10)
  • YOLO failed in the pursuit of worldly pleasure (2:1-3, 10-11)

If all there is to life is what man can experience on earth, “All is vanity!”

slide3

The purpose of living by and following YOLO is:

    • To justify selfish desires
    • To justify earthly pursuits
  • The only way to find ultimate fulfillment and satisfaction in this life is to:
    • Purposefully look beyond self: Rather than living for self, live for God (Ecc. 12:1, 13; 2 Cor. 5:9)
    • Purposefully look beyond this world: Rather than living for this life, live for “the next” (Ecc. 12:6-7; 2 Cor. 4:18-5:7)

No matter how you try justify it: sin is still sin, away from God is still away from God, damned is still damned!

slide4

The premise of YOLO is not true!

  • You only live once ON THIS EARTH, but that is not “the end”!
    • Life ON THIS EARTH is only temporary (Ecc. 2:3; 9:9-10; 2 Co 4:18-5:4)
    • “Death” is the end of life ON THIS EARTH (Ecc. 2:16; 3:2; 9:5)
    • “It is appointed for men to die once, but AFTER…” (Heb. 9:27)
  • After life ON THIS EARTH, there is an ETERNITY (2 Cor. 5:1)!
    • How I live ON THIS EARTH will determine WHERE I spend ETERNITY!
    • “God will bring every work into judgment” (Ecc. 12:14; 11:9)
    • “Receive what is due for what he has done in the body” (2 Cor. 5:10)
    • YOLO for SELF  YOLO in Hell! YOLO for GOD YOLO in Heaven!

True satisfaction is only found when we honor God & focus our lives on things above the sun (Matt. 6:33; Col. 3:2)!
