John 9:4-5, “I must work the works of him that sent Me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.”
I had a wonderful time preaching for our Cham folks last night. Other than a rough ride there and back, it was a tremendous evening. Great crowd, great spirit, and great response to the message (Micah 6:8 Part One). Looking forward to preaching for them again this Sunday morning and evening.
Jesus acknowledged, understood, lived and served, according to this principle: Our life is short, our opportunities are few, and our ability to find, follow, and finish the purpose of God for our life is like a door that swings open for just a moment. Therefore, we must give ourselves wholeheartedly to Christ and His cause for us “while it is day” before the doorway of opportunity closes on us.
Like these two men that Man and I witnessed to on Saturday, there are men, women, and young people all over the world (especially in the 10/40 Window) who live and dwell in darkness. They have been blinded by the god of this world, they are enslaved by a harsh taskmaster, and they are in need of the light, life, and love of Christ to bring them help and hope.
While the Lord Jesus walked the face of this earth, He was the light and He still shines brightly today. But today, here in 2015, you and I have been called to reflect His light, express His life, and demonstrate His love to those who sit in darkness (Matthew 4:16; 5:24-16)!
They are waiting. Will we go? Will we shine? Will we shine brightly? Will we bring the Good News to those who need it? Will we bring the Good News to those who need it most?
Just reflecting on the red letters of Jesus!
