I’m Not a Physicist But I Know What Matter(s)

There is this exhibit you can go and see called the Titanic voyage (https://www.msichicago.org/scrapbook/scrapbook_exhibits/titanic/t_voyage.html).

So there’s this pretty sick tour of a titanic replica where visitors are all given a replica ticket with the name of an actual passenger or crew member who, decades earlier, embarked on the trip of a lifetime. After the tour group walked through the exhibit using their sleeping quarters, eating the same meals as the actual passengers decades before them, after they had done this and seen other artifacts, the tour ended with an unforeseen twist.

SPOILER ALERT — A large board listed the names of all the passengers, including their status—first class, second class, crew. As you look for the name of the person whose ticket you are holding, you will see a line across the board dividing the names. Above the line were the names of those who were “saved” and below the line all those who were “lost.”

The parallel of this tour when compared to our life here on earth is amazingly profound.When it comes down to it — it  DOES NOT MATTER NOR DOES IT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE HOW THE WORLD RANKS YOUR STATUS OR SITUATION IN LIFE.

The only thing that ultimately matters is whether you are “saved” or “lost.”

As Jesus said in Matthew 16:26, “What profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?”.

CHRISTIANS: Perhaps you’ve already trusted in Christ for your salvation. But what about your fellow passengers (neighbors, friends, family members etc…)? Instead of sizing each other up by what we have or don’t have, what we look like or don’t look like, we should talk to others about their ultimate destination and demonstrate God’s great love in our life by loving them as Christ loved us.

Ultimately a mature Christian will know that it’s not what they achieve that qualifies them (it does not matters if I gain wealth or fame) The only thing I must be certain of Is “Have I put my trust in Jesus’ name?” 
In light of eternity, what one believes is far more important than what one achieves.
