“I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work” (John 9:4).
A popular hymn says: “Work, for the night is coming, Work through the morning hours;
Work while the dew is sparkling, Work ‘mid springing flowers.
Work when the day grows brighter, Work in the glowing sun;
Work, for the night is coming, When man’s work is done.”
It is noteworthy that God worked for six days. Jesus also worked continually, insisting that He was following the footsteps of the Heavenly Father (John 15:17). Though hungry, He preached to the Samaritan woman and others, bringing them to the knowledge of God and salvation (John 4:34, 40-41). He visited Lazarus’ sisters at the risk of being caught by the Jews who had been seeking to kill him (John 11:8). Through this, He taught us not to be daunted by dangers that may confront us while doing our God-given assignments. He encouraged us to work while we still have breath and strength. You are saved to fit into the good works God has pre-planned for you.
The morning hours are the days of our youth. So, if you are still young, embrace Christ now. It will save you from a lifetime of regret. The sparkling dew, springing flowers, bright day and glowing sun, in the hymn, all refer to the years when we are strong and vibrant. A time to reach out to unbelievers
letting them know the free pardon for sin that Jesus gives. Invest your resources in bringing sinners to Christ. When the night time then comes, it will be a season of fulfilment and not of regret.
1. Lord, help me to do the work You saved me for.
2. Help me Lord, to keep on working according to Your will till my night time.
