Work for the Night is Coming
I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.
One of the main purposes of John’s gospel is to bring the reader to faith. He displays Jesus’ power through His miracles including this on ein our text that shows us the bigger picture.
God has given us work to do
18And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
The question is, what are we doing about it
God has given us limited time (Daylight)
We do not know how much time we have left
We have a job to do, but limited time to do it
God has told us Night is coming
It tells us there is a point when we can not work anymore
A time we cannot share Jesus
A time we cannot lead someone to Him
Do we sense the urgency
If we do, what are we doing about it
There is a New Day coming
Recommit yourself to John 9:4
When are we going to “get on the job”
When are we going to tell someone about Jesus
