“I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.”
Jesus passed by and saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked why he was born blind, and Jesus explained the purpose behind his aliment.
“Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.”
Blindness is all around us.
Every human being born into this world has inherited the same disease.
2 Corinthians 4:4
“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”
We Must Work
The only other option is disobedience and dishonor.
If we choose to sit idle while there is work to be still be done, we not only do Him a disservice for all that He has done for us, but we are sure to miss out on many blessings He has in store.
“Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.”
It is not our works that matter, but rather His work that He does in and through us.
We cannot heal blinded eyes, but He can.
It is simply our responsibility to tell the blind Who can make them see.
“…while it is day…”
The night is coming when we can no longer work for Him.
The sun is setting on the days remaining.
We must walk toward them that are without the Truth.
“Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.”
How will we use the time we have now?
Peter and John were faced with the same decision we have before us, and they chose to refuse to be silenced.
“For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.”
1 Kings 13-14 | 2 Corinthians 9
