Does it Matter?

By Ron Thomas

    A lot of people are aware of the resurrection of Jesus and they might even accept that it happened a long time ago. Yet, to these same people it does not really matter all that much. They are not intending to be disrespectful, but they have learned through the years, they think, that it does not really matter.
    “Why would anyone think it does not matter?” There are any number of reasons why people think it does not matter. Those reason, top the Lord, mean these same people have made a grave mistake. The apostle Paul preached to a community of people in Athens Greece, The times of ignorance therefore God overlooked; but now he commandeth men that they should all everywhere repent: inasmuch as he hath appointed a day in which he will judge the world in righteousness by the man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead (Acts 17:30-31, ASV).
    We can see that it matters to God very much; He does not want to see a single person fail to be prepared for eternity, so the message of Jesus is preached to any and all who want to know the Lord’s way of righteousness. Jesus said He is the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14:6). Since this is so, we ought to give attention to the Lord.
