How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked... For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor.
Psalm 84

What Do You Do While Waiting For Jesus?

Matthew 25:1-13

My Sermon Notes from June 23, 2019 Full Text: Matthew 25:1-13

1「那時,天國好比十個童女拿著燈出去迎接新郎。2 其中有五個是愚拙的,
五個是聰明的。3愚拙的拿著燈,卻不預備油;4 聰明的拿著燈,又預備油在
『請分點油給我們,因為我們的燈要滅了。』9 聰明的回答說:『恐怕不夠
你我用的,不如你們自己到賣油的那裡去買吧。』10 她們去買的時候,新郎
到了,那預備好了的同他進去坐席,門就關了。11 其餘的童女隨後也來了,
說:『主啊,主啊,給我們開門!』12 他卻回答說:『我實在告訴你們:我
不認識你們。』13 所以,你們要警醒,因為那日子、那時辰,你們不知道。
“At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went
out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish and five were wise. 3 The foolish
ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. 4 The wise ones, however, took oil in
jars along with their lamps. 5 The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all
became drowsy and fell asleep.
6 “At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’
7 “Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. 8 The foolish ones said to the wise,
‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’
9 “‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who
sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’
10 “But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who
were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.
11 “Later the others also came. ‘Lord, Lord,’ they said, ‘open the door for us!’
12 “But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I don’t know you.’
13 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.
(馬太福音 Matthew 25:1-13)


Discussion Questions:
1. How are you sure that your hope in Jesus is accurate or true? What is your basis?
2. Why do you think the Bible emphasizes preparation for the coming of Jesus? How does one
prepare for His coming?
