We must be ready

The Word of God must be our main book, which we must study hard to know God more and more, and in the Bible we find stories for each situation and in addition, our Lord Jesus also left us parables that can make us reflect on the days of the end, for example, the parable of the ten virgins.

Matthew 25 tells us about 10 virgins, five wise and five foolish. These ten virgins had something in common, all of them was waiting for the husband, the problem is that only five understood that the husband would really come.

Moving this parable to our days is something very favorable, since these two groups exist within our churches and the big question is: Are we really waiting for the Lord? Many would say yes, but this goes beyond a simple yes, in short, is our lamp full of oil for us to receive the Lord?

We must be prepared, because Jesus ends this parable by saying:

10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Matthew 25:10-13

We must understand that Christianity is something serious. The foolish virgins were supposedly waiting for the husband, but they were not prepared to receive him. In the same way, we must understand that we do not know the day or the hour in which the Son of God is to come, therefore, we must be prepared, seeking God with all our heart, so that His coming does not surprise us.

    Yes so very true, only the believers who keep the faith will be ready to meet with their Savior, l can liken the five foolish virgins as those who are backslidden, because they turned and went to search for oil as their lamps went, don’t lose faith or hope in the Savior Jesus Christ, He is our only help in the time of trouble and need, no matter what our situation is. We can do all things in Christ Jesus who gives us the strength, Amen!
