Matthew 25:1-13 (The Ten Virgins)

The cure for FOMO is FOSO.  In other words, the remedy for the fear of missing out is the filling of Spiritual oil.  Being ready for Christ's return at the end requires a posture of preparation to receive him now in the meantime.  More than just the indwelling Holy Spirit, we need a continual experience of the outpouring Holy Spirit...and oftentimes it is through the hard times of waiting on Jesus.  A posture of preparation doesn't quench and doesn't grieve the Holy Spirit, but acknowledges Christ's invitation for us to simply ask to be filled.
