REMOVE THE RUST!

John 9:4-5 – Devotional

John 9:4-5

“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.”

I once received a photo of a can of rust remover that was coated with rust. That photo belied what it should have accomplished. It was a vivid reminder that it is what that is on the inside that truly matters!

As I am reminded of that picture I recall the saying; “It is better to burn out than to rust out.” As I think about it, I cannot recall knowing anyone who worked to death in serving the Lord in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Sadly I must confess that I have known many who became rusty in the work for the Lord. The fire they once had in service began to flicker and the oil in their lamp ran dry. Instead of returning to the Lord for a fresh supply, they pressed on in their own strength. Sadly, it wasn’t long before spiritual rust began to eat away their luster.

How do we insure that we will not fall into the same rusty rut? I think the answer is in staying close to the Lord in all that we are doing. Rather than doing things to please people, we need to always be focused on pleasing the Lord. That means we need to start each day with prayer and the Word. It is the oil that will lubricate and preserve us for each day, but we need that fresh supply on a daily basis.

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!
