152. “As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me” (John 9:4).
Difficult “night” times will come to Jesus and His ministry. But these are the moments of day and they deserve determined effort. So it is for us. The windows won’t stay open forever. Night will come. Our opportunities will remain only for a time and then we will face our own great trial of death. We, too, must be aware that our time is limited. We only have so many days to give to God’s purposes in our lives, and when we stand before Him, we will rejoice in the diligence we gave in revealing Him to our generation. Currently, it’s day so there’s work we must do.
