We are called to live holy lives.  To be holy is to be specially prepared for service to God.  Have you taken seriously the need to be set apart from the world in order to fulfill your purpose in God? 

There are professing believers who lack the oil of holiness.  There is no light coming from their attitudes or behaviour.  They prefer to live the same as they always did, without recognizing the importance of the One they are waiting for.

In the parable of Ten Virgins, The five wise ones placed a high priority on being ready for the call.  Are you ready and fuelled up if Christ calls on you to come near to Him?  The foolish virgins followed the crowd, but they were not equipped for their mission.
