Why Do You Think Jesus Told This Story ? Matthew 25:6-10 6"At midnight the cry rang out: 'Here's the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!' 7"Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. 8The foolish ones said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.' 9" 'No,' they replied, 'there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.' 10"But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut. I think , Jesus told this this story not only for Christians to search their hearts to really know if we are true followers of Him . Many appear to be Christians . They sit in church , carry their Bibles like every one else does and even believe in the soon return of Jesus . But that does not necessarily mean they know Him . If we are truly saved , se will have a walking , talking, relationship with our Lord and Saviour . OUr lives with tuly impact the world around us . So let us not be like the five foolish virgins but always be ready for our soon coming King.
