As indicated by the scriptures there were ten virgins, five wise and five foolish. They all had the same desire to meet the bridegroom. They all launched to meet him. They understood that the bridegroom was coming. Each one had good intent, but the difference was found in their preparation. Apostle asked the question, “How many are committed to the journey of meeting the bridegroom? We can launch, but not be fully prepared for the journey. When you are committed, it shows up in your preparation.
Apostle asked, “How many of us prepared this morning? How many took time to pray and listen for what God had to say? Apostle asked, “Can we last through the night if the bridegroom tarries? If he does not come today or tonight, have we prepared to endure the delay.” Let us truly count the cost of what it means to be saved, and maintain our grip on the word of the Lord.
