As I think about what I can and cannot do, the cannot list is pretty long.
I cannot dunk a basketball, I cannot fly like the little birds in my yard and I cannot do everything that everybody wants me to do. That’s only a sample list, but I suspect you also have one very similar.
But let’s think about what we can do.
Of course, we know that everybody can be saved! Amen! So as Christians let’s consider what things there are that everybody can do. Whether or not you have multiple talents, whether or not you have money and wherever you live, what things should be on the docket for all of us?
1. Everybody can be obedient!
The Lord’s commands are not “grievous” (I John 5:3), which simply means they are reasonable and doable.
2. Everybody can be faithful!
The Bible says, “Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful” (I Cor. 4:2). “Faithful” just means you are an obedient-to-the-Lord Christian day in and day out. If you are faithful, then we know we can count on you no matter what else is going on.
3. Everybody can be a witness!
Remember Jesus said, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men” (Matt. 4:19). Whatever your personality, if you are saved, whether you are young or old, you can be one of the Lord’s ambassadors (II Cor. 5:20) and witness to others.
