Open the door

Matthew 25:11

…they stood outside, calling, Lord! Lord! Open the door for us!" But he called back, "Believe me, I don't know you!"

Do you ever remember growing up and you wanted to go into a place that required membership and they wouldn't let you in. You didn't have the right card or you didn't look right? Well, this is much worse….The Lord doesn't recognize us, so we aren't allowed inside.

The ladies are standing outside "kurie" begging please affirm us Messiah, please call us by name and His reply is I don't know anything about you. Original word was oida ~ he doesn't know anything about us.

We need to Know our Savior! Right now! We don't need to wait until we older, or we have more time, or just when we wise up…the time is now! We don't know when He will return to us, so we need to be prepared, but not only that we can have a relationship right now! We don't have to wait till we are in heaven. Continually in His Word, He assures us that He is with us and that He wants to know us.

How do you build a new friendship? You spend time with the person, getting to know them ~ Right? Well, start the same right now…Get to know your Savior, Let Him hold your hand where He will never answer back …I don't know you!

Loving Our Savior,

Debbie, we can't sugarcoat this passage of Scripture. We have to be ready(accept Jesus as our Savior) for Christ's(the bridegoom's) return. I was struck by verse 10, "Then those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was locked."

Jesus said in verse 13, "...keep watch? For you do not know the day or hour of my return." Do you know Him?
