Rapid is a mixture of feelings, thoughts and processes I’ve had to go through this year. Staying in motion – constant movement. In the Kingdom you’re either doing or you ain’t and it all depends on you. Let no one slow you down, rise – believe in what God says you are.H3SRISEN
If there is anything we don’t have the guarantee of, it is more time. At times we find ourselves slacking, as the track mentions, but the more we dwell on it the less we get to do for the Kingdom. The artist gives us a perfect example of what to do if you have found yourself stagnant in your walk with Christ, ask for forgiveness, get up and get in motion.
There is no better example for us than the one that Jesus set for us in the gospels. In John 9, just before He is about to recover the sight of a man who had been blind from birth, He makes a significant statement.
“I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day, the night is coming when no one can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.” – John 9:4-5
Surgeon says it best, that ‘Jesus is the worker, the chief worker and the example to all workers’. He did not get distracted by the world, He knew what the Father had sent to Him to do and He eagerly and continuously pursued that service during His earthly ministry.
Today, this verse means the same for us. Jesus knew that the opportunity for us to serve and do good would not always be there. Eventually the night will come, our lives will pass away and Jesus will return to reward each of us according to our works whether good or evil.
We have opportunity while it is still day to move rapidly, to give generously, to assist compassionately, to love magnificently. Jesus has given Christians the privilege to bear the very name that He gave Himself as the light of the world. We get to be the light of the world today through Christ who lives in us.
