Do What You Can 2
We are not saved by good works. We are saved to do good works. There is nothing God wants you to do that you cannot do but there are many things YOU want to do that you cannot do. He knows your limitations better than you do. He also knows His power to work in and through you better than you do. And, of course, we must all start with very small things. We might call them baby steps.
