“But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.”
The verdict above was to the five foolish virgins who were denied eternal rest with Jesus because they were found unworthy and unknown to Him. This verdict landed them in tragic end of eternal weeping and gnashing of teeth.

The greatest tragedy is to think you know and serve Jesus but only to be found unknown and unworthy because of your sins.
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Matt.7:21-23
To celebrate Christmas in your sins makes you unknown and a tragedy to Jesus now and in eternity.
O Lord let me live a life well pleasing to you so as to be worthy of your acknowledgement and eternity with you in Jesus name.
