And they that were ready went in with him to the marriage feast ... Watch therefore, for ye know not the day nor the hour. Matthew 25.10, 13.

To be “ready” means that there is no unfinished business, and one is therefore ready to be reckoned with daily. To “watch” means to so live as to be always ready for the coming of the Lord. We believers should daily be prepared for reckoning. The Lord may come at any time. The five foolish virgins were ready and watching at the beginning, but alas, they did not continue on.

To be ready and watchful and waiting, we need the fullness of the Holy Spirit. It will not do if we depend on ourselves, for very soon we will be weakened and become foolish. But if we are filled with the Holy Spirit, we will spontaneously bear fruit to the glory of God. He who is truly watchful often feels he is not yet entirely ready. He does not trust in his own self. This is true humility.
