"For many are called, but few are chosen." - Matthew 22 V14

"Afterward the other virgins came also saying, 'Lord, Lord, open to us!' " - Matthew 25 V11

If we take a poll today asking people if they would like to go to heaven, I am almost certain that almost everyone would like to go there. Now if you look at the genuineness and seriousness of people, you will be surprised that only few are really serious and genuinely want to follow Jesus. People would like to go to heaven because it sounds good and all needs will be met there and definitely it is better than hell. But only few want to go there because they love God and want to serve Him. If one doesn't want to show love for our Saviour on earth, how can God expect the same person will be happy in heaven? God knows the heart of every person and He knows who is genuine and who is not. There were ten virgins who were called to be ready for the Bridegroom but only five were wise and made it and the other five were left behind. For many are called, but few are chosen. Do you love and serve the Lord genuinely? Have you received Him into your heart? Praise the Lord!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
