As there are twenty four hours in a day and each day ends with the night, our lives have been timed by the Almighty. Whether we like it or not, there is a night time for everyone of us. It will surely get dark for all of us. A time will come for you and I when all abilities to work would cease. Little wonder Jesus said in John 9:4, “I must work the works of Him that sent me while it is day, for the night cometh when no man can work.” Your night time will surely come. For some, it is very close while for some it is still far. The difficult thing is nobody knows his or her night time. It may come earlier than you think and it may come later than you think.
Whether it comes earlier or later, the question is ‘Are you prepared?’ Another crucial question is “Whose works are you doing?” The work of Him who sent you or the work the world has given to you? What kind of works are you doing? How will those works speak for you when it finally gets dark for you? Will your works speak well or speak ill of you? What will be said of you when you are gone? Who will stand for you? Can your spouse or children even stand for you after you have gone? The world practically stood still for Nelson Mandela when it got dark for him? Will your immediate neighborhood stand still for you?
Above all, while it is good to strive to make the world stand still for you, it is also important that you do the kind of works that will make heaven stand for you? Heaven is real. Hell is real. Don’t take those two places for granted. Run to Jesus before it gets dark for you. Acts 4:12. After all said and done, it is your work here on earth that will determine where you will spend your eternity. So, just before it gets dark, whose works are you doing?
God bless us all.
Good morning Africa!
Good morning Nigeria!
