She was rushing home to prepare supper for her sweet husband.  It was Difference 1their first day at home after their honeymoon and she wanted to show him what a good cook she was!  It didn’t make any difference.  He was excited. This was his first day on a new job.  He had recently graduated from a prestigious university and landed this prize position with this nationally recognized company!  It didn’t make any difference.  She had been voted the homecoming queen and was looking forward to the excitement of the event!  It didn’t make any difference.  He had just passed his driving test. He had received his license.  He had a date and was beside himself with joy as he drove to pick up the young lady himself!  It didn’t make any difference.  Someone didn’t look both ways before pulling out.  Someone didn’t see the other who thought he could make the light, but didn’t.  Someone, because of inexperience, took a curve too fast.  Someone thought she could make it before the crossing gate closed off the traffic.  Whatever plans each had, it didn’t make any difference.

If there is no God and the Bible is a fairytale, then it doesn’t make any difference. If skepticism, agnosticism, or atheism is the faith one dies with, then it doesn’t make any difference.  If there are no absolutes, then it doesn’t make any difference.  If at death one ceases to exist and all consciousness is lost, then it doesn’t make any difference.

It makes no difference whether you were the youngest, middle, or oldest child.
It makes no difference whether you were a genius or mentally challenged.
It makes no difference whether you were gifted with multiple talents or absent of all.
It makes no difference whether you were rich or poor.
It makes no difference whether you were an introvert or extrovert.
It makes no difference whether you were famous or forgotten.
It makes no difference whether you were healthy or sickly.
It makes no difference whether you were born on one side of the globe or the other.
It makes no difference whether you were fashionably dressed or wore a loin cloth.
It makes no difference whether you lived one year or one hundred.
It makes no difference, regardless of your genes, your health insurance, or the best medical doctors and medicines money can buy, you are going to die!

What will you do if Jehovah God does exist, the Bible is inspired, truth is absolute, faith and obedience is required, and life does not cease when the body gives up its spirit?

Each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment” (Hebrews 9:27 (NLT).

What will God say to you?

Well done” (Matthew 25:21, 23) or “Depart from me” (Matthew 25:41)?
