Thought For Today - October 9

Are We Ready?

     “Then shall the  kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their  lamps, and went forth  to meet the bridegroom, and five of them were wise, and five were foolish.  They that were foolish took their lamps, and  took no oil in their vessels with their lamps.  While the bridegroom tarried,  they all slumbered and slept.   And at midnight there was a cry made, behold, the bridegroom  cometh; go ye out to meet him.Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.  And the foolish said unto the wise, give us of your  oil, for our lamps are gone out.  But the wise answered saying, not so, lest there be not enough for us and you.  But go ye rather to them that sell , and buy for yourselves.  And when they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and they that were ready went in with him to the  marriage and the door was shut.  Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.  But he answered and said, verily I say unto you, I know you not.  Watch therefore, for ye  know neither the day nor the hour wherein  the son of man cometh.” Matthew 25: 1-13.
     Fellow Christians, if Jesus should return suddenly, or we should be called home without warning, would we find no oil in our lamps?  Has the fire of enthusiasm for the Lord gone out?  Are we so wrapped up in the things of the world that we fail to  keep our lamps trimmed and the spiritial fire burning and a light shinning in the window for the Lord?
     The time will come when any further service for the Lord and preparation for his coming will be too late.  The door will be shut, and those who beg to come in will be told, “I know you not” Therefore, we must not let a day go by  that we do not spend quality time in fellowship with  the Lord by reading and studying his word and praying, etc. Let us keep our lamp trimmed and oil in our lamps lest he come at an hour when we think not, and we be found not  to be ready and the door closed upon us.
