Our service welcomed two more for baptism and membership this morning. God is at work all the time! We turned to Math. 25:1-13, “Life is Precious, Death is Permanent”. We begin in the story of the ten virgins who were to prepare to meet the bridegroom. You see it was a time for preparing for the call for marriage. Everyone would eventually meet the groom but only those who were ready went with him.
In the call for marriage, the Holy Ghost is seen. The Spirit of God was there but five chose to neglect it, to wait until there was a better time. In doing so, they neglected the Son of God. For it all began in the perception of what was required of them and then in their preparation.
However, five were prepared! When the cry was made, their lamps were full of oil and they meet him. The foolish wanted a loan for they had sleep when work was needed to have been done.
The rapture will take place! Will you be found walking with Him or will you be out still searching for what is needed- Salvation. For once the door is shut, it is shut. Come to Him now. Don’t let pride stop your feet. It is not embarrassing but joyful to go no matter the age. Be found faithful!
