—Matt.25:1-13 Parable of the Ten Virgins

Obviously, this parable is about the return of Christ. There are several thoughts about which return it is referring too, but I’m just going to focus on the lesson for me! J

Jesus IS coming back. If He came today, would I be ready? Am I a wise or foolish follower? What does that even look like—to be a wise follower of Jesus?

The wise virgins were ready because:

  1. They had their lamps
  2. They had enough oil

They ALL fell asleep and had to trim their lamps, but the difference is that the wise virgins had enough oil to keep burning for the bridegroom’s arrival. For me, that really speaks of being prepared to meet my Master at any time by keeping my eye on the eternal.

What if Jesus came today? How would I feel? Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the daily grind that we forget the Master.

APPLICATION: Keep looking up! 🙂

I've been blogging for several years now, and continue to be thankful for the opportunity to share my heart, as well as hone my writing skills. When I was urged to write about my passion, three things came to mind: my God, my family, and music. I am a born-again believer of Jesus Christ. My doctrine is Baptist, my stand is fundamental. I love the Word of God and want to share how it has changed my life. It is my primary passion; however, my family is the close second! God has blessed me with a wonderful godly husband who has led me and discipled me in my walk with Christ. God also gave us three wonderful children who, along with their spouses, all love the Lord and are passionate soldiers in God's army as well. Add seven grandchildren, and my heart is overflowing with praise to my God! Music comes in third and is a great burden on my heart. We all need to find what is acceptable and pleasing to God in this area. Like every area of the Christian life, we cannot just choose music because we like it.
