Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. (Matthew 25:1-12)
Today's Morsel: Probably, one of the worst feelings I have ever had is when I missed my airline flight. I don't know, but there was this sinking feeling inside of me. Even though I knew the airlines would get me on another flight, there was just that feeling about missing the flight I was scheduled to be on. I think it may be because I was planning to get to my destination, or I had plan to do something when we arrived and now it may not happen. The five foolish virgins missed their flight because they ran out of oil and didn't get to the gate in time. Been there. Didn't get back in time. The man in Acts 3 sat at the gate daily, just waiting. What about you? Are you ready to board that train for heaven? One day, there will be a call for all to get on board. Will you be at the gate or running late?
Sing: This train is bound for glory, this train. This train, is bound for glory, this train. This train is bound for glory, don't carry nothing but the righteous and the holy, this train is bound for glory, this train.
