Discussion for Matthew 25

  • A disciple
    Maggie (cont.); As long as we continue seeking Jesus and loving Him first and far above all others, and do not let ourselves slip into disobedience, coldness and lethargy; and we don't harden our hearts or grow indifferent and unbelieving; "As long as Jesus is on the throne and our faith in Him is intact; everything's gonna turn out alright!" We don't walk by feelings, but must deal with feelings.
  • A disciple
    Hi Maggie; The Holy Spirit will guide you into all the truth. His chief work is to convict men of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; and so He will certainly FIRST work in those who of the Household of God in Jesus. When we do what is pleasing to God, He answers us with joy in our hearts. When we do evil, He condemns and convicts so that we'll repent and change. God gives us assurance!
  • Maggie Short
    How do I know if I'm being a good and faithful enough? I try to be and want to be, but I can't be sure that I am. It's frightening.
  • A disciple
    "Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps." NO DOUBT but every Christian wants to be loved and received into the kingdom at the last day; Right? All get excited to hear good teaching and expounding of the Word; all want to put that Word into action in their daily lives; Right? But is that really the truth about every Christian? Apparently for many IT IS NOT! How do we get that OIL?
  • A disciple
    "And five of them were wise, and five were foolish." Not necessarily half and half, but to show that its entirely up to YOU to either be wise or be stupid! You have come to Jesus in repentance, and believe in Him: AMEN! Now you have a Bible, and try to learn how to understand it and to become a good Christian. EXCELLENT! Ask the Lord for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and for HIS understanding!
  • A disciple
    "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." While they were running hither and thither to hear the most popular preachers and teachers and show masters in the church world; the Bridegroom is going to come without them being ready! The Lamp won't work without oil in it and without the Holy Spirit no man is His!
