If I Really Wanted To

I am thinking today of what I could do if I really wanted to.

If I wanted to, I could help make this church the most wide awake and working church in the world.

If I wanted to, I could visit members who are sick or homebound and find other ways of helping them.

If I wanted to, I could attend Bible classes regularly and encourage others to do the same.

If I wanted to, I could show more devotion in worship and receive much more good from the services myself.

If I wanted to, I could profit more from the sermon by not resenting the truth when it reveals some of my weaknesses.

If I wanted to, I could tell others about Christ and His church and lead them to him.

Of course, this all depends on what I want to do. I could be an honored servant of the greatest of all kings. I have the ability--if I really want to.
