“I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.”

John 9:4


In today’s scripture, we see Jesus speaking to His disciples about how limited the opportunity before Him was. These same opportunities God has placed before us, too. If we delay or hesitate too long, the opportunities God gives us will pass us by. It is urgent that we — like Jesus — make the decision to esteem every God-given opportunity as a special gift that cannot be wastefully squandered.

Time is a precious gift, and opportunities for the Kingdom are open doors provided by God Himself. Therefore, if God has given you a space of time when you can freely work without hindrance, you need to embrace it as a God-given gift and fervently seek to fulfill what He has called you to do.

Souls are precious to God — so precious that He sent His only Son to the earth to redeem people with His blood. Since people are that precious to God, they must be precious to us as well. Therefore, let’s use the God-given opportunities we have, regardless of our nationality, to warn people that a life lived apart from Jesus will result in serious eternal consequences.

Let’s do all we can to bring them into the safe harbor we have all found in Jesus Christ!
