The most important activity that Christians can perform is bringing others to salvation through faith in Christ.

That does not necessarily mean being a full-time minister or evangelist, but always being conscious (as Paul said in Ephesians 5:15-17) of the limited amount of earthly time allotted to us (either in our lives or until Christ returns, and especially in comparison to eternity), and therefore being sure that we are using it in service and witness to God through our conduct in the vocation in which He has placed us, and through the daily contacts with others that result from our station in life, using those contacts to tell others about Christ as the opportunity arises.

We should also be continually growing in the knowledge and practice of God's word through study of it, both individually and in groups with other like-minded people, which will increase our effectiveness in saving as many people as we can.

God has put us onto this earth for a reason. He has prepared certain good deeds, missions if you will, which He wants us to accomplish for Him (Ephesians 2:10). Every day is an opportunity to fulfill the missions God has for us that day. But if we do not do them, they are gone and will never come back again. Studyandobey.com

For example, we can utilize our time wisely by reading, studying God's Word, and memorizing it, as well as sharing it with others, and praying to God. Time with family, if you have one, is invaluable. "Train up a child in the way that he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." (Proverbs 22:6). My wife and I just spent the whole weekend with my married daughter and her son, our one and only grandchild. It is important that my grandson and my daughter (his mother), see me spending time in God’s Word.
