Love this

“Once you have been careful who you submit to, have learned from the beginning what God has commanded of us in the gospels…and we have done all that Christ has asked of us. We have forgiven, we have asked for forgiveness, we have prayed, we have laid it down at the feet of Christ, we have fought off the root of bitterness, we have done all that Christ has asked of us.” He says, “Call your friends, go to dinner, eat, drink, laugh and trust God and go to bed. Because what else can you do?” So, how do you live in a fallen world?…Submit to the truths of God and the gospel of Christ, be obedient to His commands and when you’ve done all that He’s asked, eat, drink and laugh, because the rest is in His hands.

This is from a sermon given by Matt Chandler at the Village Church called “Ecclesiastes, Part 13; Occupied Territory”. He is talking about Ecclesiastes 8 verse 15 onwards.
