"God's kingdom is like ten young virgins who took oil lamps and went out to greet the bridegroom. Five were silly and five were smart. The silly virgins took lamps, but no extra oil. The smart virgins took jars of oil to feed their lamps. The bridegroom didn't show up when they expected him, and they all fell asleep."In the middle of the night someone yelled out, 'He's here! The bridegroom's here! Go out and greet him!'"The ten virgins got up and got their lamps ready. The silly virgins said to the smart ones, 'Our lamps are going out; lend us some of your oil.'"They answered, 'There might not be enough to go around; go buy your own.'"They did, but while they were out buying oil, the bridegroom arrived. When everyone who was there to greet him had gone into the wedding feast, the door was locked."Much later, the other virgins, the silly ones, showed up and knocked on the door, saying, 'Master, we're here. Let us in.'"He answered, 'Do I know you? I don't think I know you.'"So stay alert. You have no idea when he might arrive.
There is a message in there fam, I pray that you caught it. Scripture tells us that Jesus return is going to be equal to that like a thief in the night...unexpected and quick. We have a lot of things going on these days...and there are plenty of things to keep us busy and distracted from being ready when Jesus returns. Make no mistake fam, there is no amount of religious duty that substitutes "Knowing Him"
I know we spend a lot of time debating over non-essentials, but the truth is that it all boils down to each of us individuals establishing a "personal" relationship with God through His Son Jesus Christ and being led and taught by The Holy Spirit. Our function is to be disciplined and then disciple others...to Know Him and to make Him known to the rest of the World. Don't get caught unprepared. I'm sure some of you have seen the bumper sticker before it says; "Jesus is coming...Look Busy!" Well, He is Coming, so don't just look busy, be busy about the business of cultivating your relationship with Jesus Christ, and helping lead others toward doing the same.
Today's Challenge: It's simple, BLINK! Really I want you to blink your eyes. How fast was that? Now BLINK again, only this time I want you to try and say Lord Forgive me before the BLINK is over. Can't do it can ya! That's how fast His return is gonna be, don't make the dummy move thinking that you are gonna wait until the last minute to get things right...Now is the appointed time. Make things right today and then get busy working on that relationship today.
If you need help with that Holla @me! Let's Get Ready To Go Fam!
