                                                                        ---by Jerry Pence
                                                   Matthew 25:1-13 is the parable of the ten virgins. The primary purpose of this
                                           parable, like many others, is to provide a lesson on what the kingdom of Heaven is like.
                                            The "just" of this parable is that the kingdom of Heaven will consist of only those who
                                                                          have made proper preparation.
                                                  The parable tells of ten young women of marrying age who took their lamps and
                                           went to meet the bridegroom. Five of the women were wise and took extra oil for their
                                             lamps, but five were foolish and did not. The bridegroom delayed his coming until
                   midnight and the women fell asleep. When the announcement came that the bridegroom was coming, the
                women awoke to lamps without oil. The wise women who had prepared for a long wait and had brought extra oil
                 but the foolish women had not. The foolish women were unprepared and went to buy oil for their lamps at the
               last minute, but it was too late. While they were gone to buy oil, the groom came and the wise women went with
                           him. When the foolish women returned they found the door locked and they could not enter.
                           When we fail to prepare for eternity with God by obeying his commands, we too will be unprepared for
                Christ when he comes again. At that point, it will be too late to prepare and we will locked out of an eternity with
                    Him in Heaven. Like the women in the parable, just wanting to be with God is not enough. We must be
                   prepared. God's plan of salvation calls for belief that the bridegroom is God's son (John 8:24) and that he is
                 coming; but it also calls for other preparation. You can read about those who loved God enough to prepare for
               Jesus' return in your Bible. Some of examples of those who properly prepared can be found in these scriptures: Acts
                 2; Acts 8; Acts 9; Acts 10; Acts 16. Further information about this preparation can be found in these scriptures:
                 Romans 10:17; John 8:4; Luke 13:3; Matthew 10:32-33; Mark 16:15-16; Acts 22:16; Romans 6:3-7; Galatians
                  3:27; Revelation 2:10. Come worship with us this Sunday and learn more about preparing for Jesus' return.
