Matthew 25:5-8 NLT
“When the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and fell asleep. “At midnight they were roused by the shout, ‘Look, the bridegroom is coming! Come out and meet him!’ “All the bridesmaids got up and prepared their lamps. Then the five foolish ones asked the others, ‘Please give us some of your oil because our lamps are going out.’”
We don’t know when we only know that He is coming, the five foolish ones weren’t ready and had to leave, Don’t get caught needing because God has given us everything we need. Ask, seek, and knock and we will be ready. Pray, talk with and build up people with truth and we will be ready. Study and apply what you learn so we will be ready, nothing is better than a relationship with Him, He wants to know us and wants us to know Him.
Matthew 25:10-13 NLT
““But while they were gone to buy oil, the bridegroom came. Then those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was locked. Later, when the other five bridesmaids returned, they stood outside, calling, ‘Lord! Lord! Open the door for us!’ “But he called back, ‘Believe me, I don’t know you!’ “So you, too, must keep watch! For you do not know the day or hour of my return.”
Again, the knowledge of who He was was there, they called Lord, Lord, we can’t let our belief be minimized by our love for this world and the feeling that I am good where I am at. Run to win Paul says, it’s worth being ready. Amen
