In John 9:4, Jesus said, “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.” Here, Jesus tells us that there is a window of opportunity during which we must work to advance His kingdom. Recent events have shown us that this window is quickly closing.
Just as Jesus was sent by God to a hurting, sin sick planet, we are sent on a divine mission into our communities. As healthcare professionals God gives us opportunities every day to minister to people’s physical, mental, and spiritual needs. Jesus never separated physical healing from spiritual wholeness. He was focused on the eternal and not simply physical healing. Christ worked with a sense of urgency.
The time is now – While It Is Day. The mission is clear and the divine mandate echoes in our ears, “[we] must work the works of Him who sent [us] while it is [yet] day; the night is coming when no one can work.”
