Bible Reading for OCT11: Matthew 25-26

The Olivet Discourse is continued in chapter 25. We
see pictures here of the wise and the foolish virgins. The
wise virgins portray separation from the world, and
expectation of the Lord’s return. This is a real picture of
what the world should be doing today. We should watch with
great anticipation for our Lord’s return; and while
laboring for Him we should be careful to remain completely
separate from the world and the sin that is related to the
world.

We are given a great picture of the profitable and
unprofitable servants in this same chapter. We find that
the first two servants were faithful and multiplied their
talents. There are two valuable lessons to be learned here.
One is that the Christian who is faithful in his service,
no matter how small it may be, will get the same reward as
the Christian who seems to have a great ministry. God may
have blessed you with only one talent, but if you will
faithfully use that talent, your reward will be just as
great as the person who has five talents and is using all
of them for the Lord. God never expects more out of you
than He gives you. His expectation is that you faithfully
use what He has given you. He will then reward you
accordingly. Another lesson here is that if we fail to use
what God gives us, He will very likely take it away and
give it to another.

In verse 13 we read these words, “Watch therefore,
for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of
man cometh.” This verse should be applied to the hearts of
every Christian. We should watch the things we do and say,
and be careful and faithful in our service to the Lord;
because we truly do not know the hour when the Lord will
return.

Christian, I wonder what you are doing today in
your service to the Lord. Are you serving as if He might
come today? Do you wake up each morning thinking that this
might be the day of His appearing? The thought should
challenge and encourage us to do more for Him so that, as
we stand before Him, we will hear Him say, “Well done, thou
good and faithful servant.”

For those of you who are reading these comments and
are not certain of your salvation, then today is the day of
salvation for you. If Christ should come today, are you
ready to meet Him? Do you know that you would spend
eternity with Him? The most important thing in your life is
your relationship with Jesus Christ. What have you done
with Jesus?
MEMORY VERSE FOR TODAY:
Man now can be:
Reconciled.
Colossians 1:20
And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by
him to reconcile all things unto himself, by him, I say,
whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
