Does Christ Matter?

        


Does Christ Matter?


Why should Christ matter when the world seems to be falling apart? One, this world is not forever and the life we live here is not forever. Our life is just a small tip of a very small part of eternity. We all know we will all one day die. Some people do not like to hear about this, but we are faced with it more so as we hear each day of another death from the dreadful coronavirus.

The reason Christ should matter is, that the devil likes to keep this world preoccupied with problems. There are many issues that people argue about day after day. They are being preoccupied and frightened. They have been pulled from churches and life seems unstable. This may leave many young people without the light of the Lord. Christ needs to outshine every problem, every obstacle. Why! because life is not forever.

Though there are many important issues in life that need to be addressed. We can not forget Christ as the center of our being. We do not want to communicate to our children that problems and worldly issues should govern and demand our full attention. Christ is to be given the preeminence. All lives matter and they should be important enough for us to give the Good News of Christ. It is interesting to think about what is happening. The devil must be the happiest fellow. He sees churches closing their doors, people living in fear, and withdrawing from one another. He likes all the ruckus and trouble stirring. He likes all the hate and worry. The truth is, when death comes knocking at your door, you then will know what really mattered, but It will be too late. He knows how to keep you right where He wants you. Mad at somebody. Mad at the world, mad at politics, mad at God. Scared to death. He's happy you're making your kids mad at people, because when your mad it makes them mad too. Whatever it is, whether it's not liking the pastor or over color or race. He knows how to keep them in His grip. Whether it be outrage or whether it be deception. Whether it be pleasures of life or ever sorrowing depression. Anything just to keep them away from
Christ. That's what the devil likes. He wants to takes as many to hell with him as he can.

I remember an old Pastor I had, He's in heaven now. He read a line from a poem. "Only one life soon past, only what's done for Christ will last." We will face death, we are not promised tomorrow. Our bodies will die and our soul will live forever. This world will vanish to us. There will be a new existence.
Those that trusted Christ for salvation will live forever in heavenly places, ever to be with the Lord.
Those that forsook the Way of The Lord, those who rejected the Christ of our salvation, their eyes will be opened to understand, Christ mattered most of all.

Then will be too late to tell your children that Christ matters most of all. They've been taught He's not as important as other issues of life. They've learned a different way. They may never hear about THE WAY. This world is changing and it has darkened the hearts of many. There are many worthy things to fight for, and many are not. We need to be careful to give Christ first place in importance. We need to live in the fear of the Lord our God. He has power over death and hell.

We are facing death more than ever. Corona Virus has been used by the devil to take people before their time. I know one thing - they are aware of where they are right now. Some are thinking I want to go back and warn my kids. - but it will be too late. They are in hell and they are living in a torturous existence. Only God knows where they are. While we are alive there is hope.

This life matters but what matters most is what happens after we die. Our Bible teaches us we can know 100% sure when we die if we will go to heaven.

In 1 John 5:11-13 - Its words teach us that without Christ
(The Son Of God) we cannot have life. This is talking of eternal life. This only comes to those who believe upon the
Son of God. He's the only WAY of salvation. Not of works we have done, It is what He has done for us. In these verses, it tells us that we can know if we have eternal life. Eternal Life means we will go to heaven when we die.  All this happens through belief and acceptance of His truth.
Christ lived a perfect life. Was crucified and died for us taking upon himself our punishment. He resurrected from the dead.
He has power over life and death. He came to this earth for the purpose of making a way.  Making a way for you and me to become his child. If we do not accept Christ we do not have life and we are not his child. He has made salvation available to all but He wants you to call upon His name and ask for His gift of forgiveness to the saving of your soul.

Does Christ, matter? Forever Matters, knowing you and your family are safe in the arms of Christ Jesus - matters.

God does not discriminate or look at color - He wants you to believe upon the Son of God and repent from the things of this world. The Bible tells us, Our righteousness is as filthy rags, but Christ in us is righteous.

Will you believe upon the Lord Jesus Christ, friends. He loves you that's why He made a way. He doesn't want anyone to go to hell, He wants you to call upon Him and ask for the gift of his forgiveness to be applied to your life. His blood was shed for you. He took your place of punishment.

John 3:15-18
That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Ask the Lord right now. He's Listening.

It is not too late for you.. any color, any age, any person. He saves sinners. Today is the day of salvation.  This may be your last chance.


Christ matters most of all.
