    One said to him,“ Lord, are they few who are saved?” He said to them,“ Strive to enter in by the narrow door, for many, I tell you, will seek to enter in and will not be able.When once the master of the house has risen up, and has shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and to knock at the door, saying,‘ Lord, Lord, open to us!’ then he will answer and tell you,‘ I don’t know you or where you come from.’Then you will begin to say,‘ We ate and drank in your presence, and you taught in our streets.’He will say,‘ I tell you, I don’t know where you come from. Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity.’There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth when you see Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and all the prophets in God’s Kingdom, and yourselves being thrown outside.They will come from the east, west, north, and south, and will sit down in God’s Kingdom.Behold, there are some who are last who will be first, and there are some who are first who will be last.”

Come out to meet him!’Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.The foolish said to the wise,‘ Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’But the wise answered, saying,‘ What if there isn’t enough for us and you? You go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’While they went away to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast, and the door was shut.Afterward the other virgins also came, saying,‘ Lord, Lord, open to us.’But he answered,‘ Most certainly I tell you, I don’t know you.’

    and sent Timothy, our brother and God’s servant in the Good News of Christ, to establish you, and to comfort you concerning your faith,that no one would be moved by these afflictions. For you know that we are appointed to this task.For most certainly, when we were with you, we told you beforehand that we are to suffer affliction, even as it happened, and you know.For this cause I also, when I couldn’t stand it any longer, sent that I might know your faith, for fear that by any means the tempter had tempted you, and our labor would have been in vain.
