God wants us to be active, fruit-bearing, zealous and radical Christians. You must redeem the time because the night is coming when no one can work (John 9:4).
Ways in Which the Night May Come
1) Sometimes night comes in the form of pregnancy and childbirth in which a very active Christian may be relegated to the mothers’ corner of spiritual inactivity for ten to fifteen years.
2) Sometimes, the night comes in the form of marriage to a person who opposes and prevents the Christian activities you have loved during the years before you got married.
3) Sometimes the night comes in the form of old age in which the energy and life needed for the work of God is simply not there.
