Rise And Shine
“As long as it is day, We must do the work of him who sent me.”—John 9:4
If you woke up in this morning and saw the light of day, God has work for you to do.
Perhaps your work is to love and to pray, laboring fervently in prayers, that others "may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God” (Colossians 4:12).
Your work may be to listen quietly and attentively to those that are weary and speak words of comfort to them. Or it may be to endure pain with cheerful endurance, and gratitude for those who serve you. If you've done nothing more than this you’ve done the work of him who sent you.
Do you think you're too old, too sick, too weary to do God's work? "He is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work” (2 Corinthians 9:8).
Years ago I read an introduction to a commentary by Matthew Henry that states well my thoughts as I write: “If I may but be instrumental to make others wise and good, wiser and better and more in love with God and His word, I have all I desire, all I aim at.”
Who could ask for anything more?
