“And be ye yourselves like unto men looking for their Lord, when he shall return from the marriage feast; that, when he cometh and knocketh, they may immediately open unto him.” Luke 12:36
HOPE FOR TODAY!
“Better late than never?” Obviously there are some things that being late for will just not suffice! Late for dinner? Its Okay! Late for work? It might be Okay! But late letting Jesus into your heart and home, well that will never be Okay! We cannot continue to procrastinate when Jesus is knocking at our door! Immediately we must act be ready to answer and act by following Him. We must always be ready and always be watching for His return. Excuses will not work so if your habit is to avoid by making excuses it is time to change! As we read,
“Then shall the Kingdom of Heaven be likened unto ten virgins, who took their lanps and went forth to meet the Bridegroom, and five of them were foolish, and five were wise. For the foolish, when they took their lamps, took no oil with them: but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. Now while the Bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. But at midnight there was a cry, “Behold the Bridegroom! Come ye forth to meet him.” Then those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are going out. But the wise answered saying, Peradventurethere will not be enough for us and you: go ye rather to them that sell and buy for yourselves. And while they went away to buy, the bridegroom came and they that were ready went in with Him!” Mathew 25:1-10
FRIEND, BE READY AND IMMEDIATELY ANSWER JESUS WHEN HE CALLS!
