|I read Matthew 25 for my morning devotion, and I have been thinking about the parable of the 10 virgins ever since. These ten virgins were preparing to meet the bridegroom, so they grabbed their lamps and went out. Five of them took oil along for their lamps and the other five didn’t. When the bridegroom came, the five who took some oil along were ready and they went in to the banquet with the bridegroom while the other five ran to buy some oil. Before they got back the door was shut and the wedding had begun.|
Is your lamp still burning? Do you have enough oil to last you until the bridegroom arrives? He is going to come like a thief in the night and is going to wait for no one! Matthew 25:13 says “therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.”
So brethren, I urge you to keep watch and prepare for the arrival of the father. He could come at any time and if you are not ready, you will miss the banquet. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, LIVE EVERDAY AS IF IT WERE YOUR LAST. The smallest thing you overlook may be the thing that keeps your out of the banquet like the 5 foolish virgins. I pray that this is not your portion.
Stay blessed and spread the word.
