John 9:4 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "I must work the works of him that sent me," (humas dei ergagesthai tou pempsantos me) "It behooves us to work the works of the one who sent me," the miraculous works that demonstrate I have power to save, Mar 2:10-11; Joh 4:34; Joh 5:19; Joh 5:36; Joh 11:9; Joh 12:35; Joh 17:4.

2) "While it is day:” (heos hemera estin) ''While it is day," while day yet exists, while opportunity of doing good in witnessing is yet at hand, Joh 11:9-10. There is an urgency to do good every day of life, lest some die in darkness, Rom 13:11-12.

3) "The night cometh, when no man can work." (erchetai nuks hote oudeis dunatai ergazesthai) "Night comes (approaches), of its own nature, when no one is able to work;- The night of death comes when opportunity to do good is gone forever, when the cries of torments of the damned go up, without rest, forever and ever, Luk 16:24; Luk 16:26; Luk 16:31, Rev 14:11. So let us "work for the night is coming when man's work is done." And may we be able to say, as our Lord did to His Father, "I have finished the work thou gavest me to do," Joh 17:4-5; Rom 13:12; Eph 5:11-17.
