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
I drove past a bus stop yesterday. It was not for a city bus, but rather a travel bus. I noticed as I sat at a red light, that all these people were sitting on their suitcases. They just sat there, playing on their phones, and staring off into their thoughts. As I took in the sight, it made me think of how some Christians are doing the same thing.
Many Christians today seem to be sitting on their luggage and wait ing on the bus to Heaven. We hear so many claiming that ‘Jesus is coming,’ and, ‘Time is near.’ Yet a good deal of us have packed it in and are sitting on our suitcases.
Now is not the time for Christians to be sitting on the Samsonite, it is time to get up and get about our Father’s business sharing the Word. Put your luggage up, you have work to do! Jesus is not here yet! There are people dying and going to Hell. They need Jesus and the only way they will hear about Him is if you them.
This world is in trouble, there is corruption, murder and unspeakable things happening all around us. However, you as a Christian have a responsibility to this world.
A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.John 13:34-35
Notice in these two verses that “love one another’ is repeated three times. It was repeated so you would understand the importance. We cannot afford to just quit. Now more than ever, we need to be loving the unlovable. Feeding the hungry. Clothing the naked. Bringing warmth to the cold. Sharing Christ. The night has not come and there is plenty to be done.
It is still day so get up off you Samsonite.
