In the 25th chapter of the Gospel of Matthew, the Lord Jesus Christ mentioned many interesting things about the kingdom of heaven. Ten virgins set out to meet the bridegroom in the kingdom of heaven, five of them were wise and five were foolish. Those wise men took Noona with them. The foolish did not take oil with them. Let us meditate on some things from a spiritual perspective.
Those who are prepared are of light. luminaries ie,
1. To live a life dedicated to Christ:
A daughter-in-law is devoted only to the son of that bride. That is, a person or congregation who has accepted Christ as their personal Savior is dedicated to Christ alone. Devotees belong only to the son of the bridegroom. Those devoted to that bridegroom are saved. Our lives must be completely devoted to Christ. If you are not saved and fully devoted, you are not of light, but of darkness. Dark connections are in everything you do. Those who sin, lie, drink, are devoted to everything in the world and are far from Christ. Are you among them? Just look at yourself. How am I doing, am I dedicated to Christ, how is my life? In Hosea 2:19 I will make you chief by faith. If he is faithful to the bridegroom, he will give it to him. I’ll be faithful, I’ve made you my priority. O Israel, you are my daughter-in-law, and you have committed adultery with someone else. You are devoted to me, O Israelites, says the Lord.
2. How to devote to the Lord:
(A) Love and devotion to Christ. Do not love the world and the hopes of the world without loving Christ or the Bridegroom. Love Christ alone. (B) Giving gifts to the son of the bridegroom means dedication. (C) To live for the glory of Christ. For the sake of Christ, no matter how many sufferings, difficulties, hardships or temptations one should live for His glory. (D) Serving Christ. The daughter-in-law and the son-in-law should be ministered to. Living holy for Christ. Purity is light. Light and holiness are two attributes of God.
3. Living Holiness for Christ:
Purity is light. What is light? Living with the saved , the saved. Light means goodness, righteousness, truth. Ephesians 5:9. Light is reality. In every work, life should be lived with authenticity. Many say there is salvation and commit sin. There is protection. God’s money is wasted. No authenticity. If they speak, they will all tell lies. There is no authenticity in them. Live realistically in relation to the light. Light means justice. Live righteously in all things.
4. Preparing for Christ’s Coming:
Revelation 3:18 – I advise you to buy from me gold that has been refined in the fire, that you may increase your wealth, that you may not be ashamed of your tithes, that you may wear white clothes, that you may see, and that you may see. (1) The page should be cast into the fire. Live for Christ even in hardships. (2) To live with purity, righteousness and truthfulness. (3) Light for your eyes – means God’s word is a light for our eyes. Let us move forward with preparation for the coming of Jesus Christ, the Bridegroom, enlightened as the wise virgins prepared for the coming of the Lord . . May God bless you with such grace! Amen!
A life dedicated to Christ
Dear brothers and sisters, a short story for youth
Did I ever leave!
Terrible floods engulfed an area. The overflowing of small canals and rivers accompanied by heavy rains and strong winds turn into storms and make people afraid of nature. At such a time, water can be seen wherever you look, while some bratty boys swim in the water and fetch big sticks and tree stumps that are being washed away by the water flow and keep them nearby. Their hope is to sell later. In addition to this, some people are breaking into houses and stealing. All these boys saw a black tree stump coming in the stream of water. Everyone immediately jumped into the water and started swimming towards the stump of the tree. It is like a black tree stump and shiny. While everyone was swimming towards the stump of the tree, competing for it, Rakesh, just like his name, flew away like a rocket. He was still getting closer. Then saw all his friends! It is not a dead tree. There was a big bear swimming in the water, trying to catch anything he could find, diving from a long distance without finding any clue to catch it. Soon his friends were shouting from behind. Rakesh didn’t notice any of this and went to Amantam in triumph, thinking it was a tree stump – and grabbed it tightly. The friends who noticed it shouted loudly, Orey Rakesh, that tree will not die, that is a terrible bear, let it go! Hurry up! Will it kill you! They say save Baboy Baboy. Rakesh was already gasping for breath and trying to shout loudly with his friends helplessly shouting “Oray! I never left it but it never left me! ” While the bear was killing him without breathing, finally he died a senseless death in the hands of the bear. Dear young people! I think you understand. Although sin may seem inviting at first, it later behaves perversely and leads to death.
Be careful! The wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23) Don’t give in to sin. “Because she hastened him with her words every day, he fainted and died (Judges 16:16) These words were not about anyone, but about Samson the lion. Unable to get out of the intoxication of girls, he could not get release except he wanted to die as a refuge from death. And what about you? If you are already caught in a terrible sin, don’t panic. It is true that you cannot come out on your own, but the God who is able to deliver you, who can protect you and give you peace of mind is looking at you with hope. Cry out and Lord please set me free. Ask Him to give you a little peace and He will immediately set you free and make you an heir to the Kingdom of Heaven.
