Would you consider yourself a “procrastinator”? Do you find yourself doing things at the last minute like cramming for a test, putting off household chores until the very last moment, or waiting too long to tell someone something that is time sensitive? If we procrastinate with some things, it may not matter much in the grand scheme of life. But there are some things that we should really do now… while we have time to do them. Jesus says in John chapter 9 verse 4:
"As long as it is day, we must do the works of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work."
In this verse, Jesus was talking about himself, that there was coming a day when he will no longer be in the world, but I think there is a greater implication to this verse for us as well. That we should do the work of the Lord while it is day because night is coming when no one can work. Today we are blessed to be able to share Christ freely - at least in America. But it is becoming less and less popular to do so. So, I encourage you to work while it is day. Spread Jesus’ love and his message of salvation, obey the scriptures, do whatever God is calling you to do - because night is coming, when no one can work.
Jesus said, “As long as it is day, we must do the works of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work.” I pray that you take this warning to heart. Don’t wait until the last minute to do what God is calling you to do. Wherever he is leading you, be about it today. And if you don’t know Jesus as Lord and Savior, don’t wait to come to him. Do it today. If you wait too long, you just might miss your chance. Remember, night is coming when no one can work. So I encourage you to do the work of the Lord now, when you can.
