9:4 The night is coming - Christ is the light. When the light is withdrawn night comes, when no man can work - No man can do any thing toward working out his salvation after this life is ended. Yet Christ can work always. But he was not to work upon earth, only during the day, or season which was appointed for him.
Joh 9:4 The night cometh, when no man can work. The works of God are to be made manifest in the blind man; Christ must work those works while the short day of life lasteth. His night of death was near. Nor is ours far off.

John 9 4 Must here is a command which means it must be done according to how the command is.also weather you like it or not it must be done.this is one of the coincidental works he must do.is means everything you have to do do it with your strength,fast,deligently,wholeheartedly,in wisdom.night here also means sickness,accident,or death can take place.

Day light in terms of every available opportunity to do what God has called you to do as there is a moment of darkness when no opportunity will be available due to various reasons. Say when I am still young and energetic I can do more than when I grow old and eyes dim and I need one to lead me or even when my memory will no longer support what I can do or sickness loss of voice This would be a darkness moment. Do what you can do for God now now now before darkness when you can no longer work
