The words of Jesus, Matthew 25, beginning in verse one: “Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to 10 virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Now, five of them were wise, and five were foolish. Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them.”
A person would have to be living in willful darkness today to be unaware of the difficult days that we, in this present world, have now entered. Despite how difficult the days will get, Jesus offers an internal strength born of God that will guarantee vision, joy, and the expectation of good in all those who embrace it.
The oil is Him, carrying us through the storm as only God has shown us He can and promised us He will. Come to Him today, and ask Him to fill your heart and your life with His presence.
It’s time to pray.
