    “ Lord,” someone asked Him,“ are there few being saved?” He said to them,“ Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because I tell you, many will try to enter and won’t be ableonce the homeowner gets up and shuts the door. Then you will stand outside and knock on the door, saying,‘ Lord, open up for us!’ He will answer you,‘ I don’t know you or where you’re from.’Then you will say,‘ We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets!’But He will say,‘ I tell you, I don’t know you or where you’re from. Get away from Me, all you workers of unrighteousness!’There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth in that place, when you see Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but yourselves thrown out.They will come from east and west, from north and south, and recline at the table in the kingdom of God.Note this: Some are last who will be first, and some are first who will be last.”

Come out to meet him.’“ Then all those virgins got up and trimmed their lamps.But the foolish ones said to the sensible ones,‘ Give us some of your oil, because our lamps are going out.’“ The sensible ones answered,‘ No, there won’t be enough for us and for you. Go instead to those who sell, and buy oil for yourselves.’“ When they had gone to buy some, the groom arrived.

For you yourselves know that we are appointed to this.In fact, when we were with you, we told you previously that we were going to suffer persecution, and as you know, it happened.For this reason, when I could no longer stand it, I also sent him to find out about your faith, fearing that the tempter had tempted you and that our labor might be for nothing.
