4 “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work. 5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” (John 9:4–5, NKJV)
As the light of the world, Jesus exposes the world, saves the world and judges the world. Here, Jesus emphasizes the urgency of doing the work of God. Just as darkness extinguishes one’s opportunity to work in the light of day, our opportunity to do the Lord’s work is drawing to a close. While we have breath in our nostrils let us be diligent to work the works of God by following the light of Christ’s word. We “work of works” of God as we live by faith, walking in the light of His word. Jesus, the light of the world, blesses our labor of love as we walk and work by the light of His truth.
