Lost and Found
*We’ve got to be willing to give up the things of this life to take on the things of God.
*Grace has been given unto us for mercy, but it was never given to be abused and mistreated.
*We need to gather as much oil for ourselves as we can here and now, so that at the coming of the Lord our lamps will be shining bright and we will have an abundance stored up in our vessels.
*We can make all the plans we want, but it is God that will direct our steps where He wants them to go. How important must it be then for us to pray the will of our Father in all things.
*We do not want to live our lives apart from Christ and find out in the end how much we wasted that He blessed us with and entrusted us with.
*There are many out there who need to do as the prodigal son and come to their senses and see that they need to return back to their Father, and He will receive them with open arms and rejoicing in heaven with all of His angels.
*Just as the father ran to his lost son before he even got to the gates, so too did Christ suffer for us and die outside of the gates of the great city, that He might sanctify the people with His own blood and they would be reconciled back to their Father.
