Oil lamp

A week before His crucifixion, Jesus told His disciples the parable of the 10 virgins who went out to meet the bridegroom. Five were wise and brought extra oil for their lamps, while five were foolish and did not.

When the bridegroom finally came, five of the virgins were prepared, and five were not. The door of the wedding feast was shut, and five of the virgins were shut out.

In this video devotional, Christian author and Pastor Jamie Buckingham says Jesus told this story to teach His followers that “it’s not enough to belong to His church or simply to pray. It’s not enough to simply be a member of the wedding party, a member of His church. We need reserve oil, to be filled with the Holy Spirit. If you are down a quart or on empty, now is a good time to ask the Holy Spirit to come into your life and fill you with His power.”
