"Living A Prepared Life" (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Matthew 25:1-13)Rev. Dr. Marjorie E. Nunes, November 12, 2017
Part of the Sunday series, preached at a Sunday service
Jesus tells a parable about ten bridesmaids who went out to meet a bridegroom. Five of the maidens neglected to bring extra oil for their lamps; they are called the foolish maidens. Five remembered to bring extra oil; they are the wise maidens. The bridegroom is delayed, and all the bridesmaids fall asleep. When a crier proclaims that the bridegroom has arrived, all ten bridesmaids wake up and rush to their lamps. During the long night the lamps had run out of oil. Some were ready and some were not ready!
