It really will not matter

At the end of the day,

Whether we believed in what we did

But whether God was obeyed.

It really will not matter

If we wore the finest clothes,

Because unless we were clothed in humility

Our nakedness was exposed.

It really will not matter 

If we had expensive cars,

Because unless we were driven towards holiness

We could not travel very far.

It really will not matter

Whether our home was furnished well,

Because unless Christ was our covering

God’s judgement this has spelled.

It really will not matter

Whether we dined with the best,

Because unless we consumed and digested God’s word

There couldn’t be true rest.

It really will not matter

Whether externals were correct,

Because God looks at the heart

And knows which idols we did erect.

It really will not matter

Whether all arguments were won,

Because when we were on our deathbed

They were all vanity – one by one.

And it really will not matter

If we professed to follow indeed,

Because true humility and holiness

Was found when on our knees.

God’s word is pure and blameless

And unless we honoured same,

All the millions and the finest things

Were all worshipped in much vain.

It really will not matter

Whether we were god inside our heart,

Because the day has surely come

Where our delusions fell apart.

And it really will not matter

Whether Goliaths became our strength,

Because it’s our pebbles that made mountains fall

When His Spirit dwelled inside our tent.

But what will really matter

Is whether Jesus had set us free,

By being our Lord and Savior

For all of eternity.
