If you don’t repent from your sins, confess that Jesus is The Lord and keep his commandments living a holy life, you won’t be saved.
Matthew 25:5 “While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.”
The 10 virgins represent the church in this parable
Christians, wake up! Get ready to receive The Lord. Nowadays, everything points at his second coming.
Some of us are taking it too easy. So easy that very often, there is no difference between Christians and those that do not see themselves as Christians.
Stay away from sin and purify yourself.
Love is the Key
Love your God, over everything. Love him more than your TV. Love him more than your new home, your bank account. Love him more than your own family. Love him more than your sport team. Be willing to give up and leave everything but your relationship with Him.
But, since we can’t see God, let’s show our love to him by loving those that are close to us.
Love those who are close to you. Love you partner, children, mother in love, your co-workers, your boss, your neighbors, your family in love, the friends of your husband or wife. Love even your enemies.
How do you love?
Be happy when anything good happens to them. Share their sorrows. Be moved by compassion. Give to anyone who needs. Share what you have. Smile to everyone specially to those who don’t know how. Be supportive. But over everything, learn to forgive.
“So will my heavenly Father do to you, unless each of you forgive your brother from your heart.”
Do not be part of someone else sin.
When someone commit a sin against you, forgive him(her). This is the only way to stop his sin from continuing affecting you. Other people’s bad actions, could even destroy us, when we don’t learn to forgive them.
Resentment, lock of love and hate is what really keep us away from God.
Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. 1 Peter 1:16
Holy means, pure, totally clean, separated, away from evil, not the people who carry evil, but the evil itself which is reflected in bad actions and bad thoughts.
