Making the Most of Each Moment

“We must work the works of Him who sent me as long as it is day; night is coming when no one can work.” (John 9:4)

The life that we now live in the flesh is our day. Let us work out our salvation with fear and trembling, while it is called today. There is no work nor labor in the grave, toward which we are all fast hastening. Let us pray, and read, and keep our Sabbath’s holy, and hear God’s Word, and do good in our generation, like men who never forget that, ‘the night is at hand.’ Our time is very short. Our daylight will soon be gone. Opportunities once lost can never be retrieved. A second lease of life is granted to no man. Then let us resist procrastination as we would resist the devil. Whatever our hand finds to do, let us do it with our might. ‘The night comes, when no man can work.’ (J.C. Ryle, John)
