‘‘And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.’’ Matthew 25:10 (KJV).

Readiness for a journey is determined, but soaring to the world unknown is not planned for. When you are fully set or prepared for an event, nothing takes you by surprise. The coming of the Lord Jesus would be for those who live ready and are fully kitted awaiting His imminent return.

Our Bible passage where we took our text from in the book of Matthew 25:10 (KJV), the people who went to buy were the five foolish virgins. They went to buy oil for their lamps to enable them to get ready for the arrival of the bridegroom. That means they left their duty post. The other five virgins who were wise and ready remained in their duty post. When the bridegroom came, those who lived ready made it with the bridegroom, while those who went to buy oil for their lamps in order to get ready missed the arrival of the bridegroom. When the bridegroom came, the door was shut against those who went to get ready.

God Almighty is a God of readiness who is always on point at all times. He wants us to learn from the parable of the five wise virgins who live ready and that we should always watch out for the unexpected. He does not condone laziness and He wants us to be proactive and be serious-minded at all times and be conscious of the present times we are in.

Do you desire a strategy to live ready from God? Then hook up to this free takeaway package in the book of Matthew 24:1-END and Jesus will grant you divine help to live ready and not get ready.


Dear Lord Jesus Christ, help me to be wise in this present world by living in holiness and righteousness and to always be ready for your return. Amen.


  Living ready is a ticket that earns one a place of honour in destiny with Jesus Christ.
