Why does it matter? It matters because you are very important to your Creator. God tells us that there’s a day coming when each of us will stand before Him and give an account for our lives. He will judge all wrong-doing, including those who worshiped His creation rather than the Creator. It matters because God loves us, wants to save us from this judgment, and live in peace with Him. It matters because, according to what God has said, apart from Jesus Christ, there is no other way to be forgiven of our offenses, restored back to right relationship with God, and to be saved from His righteous, eternal judgment. It matters because there’s no one else who can set us free from the power of the spirits, addictions, fear, and the shame of our past.
