Introduction

The song featured on today's page ("Everbody Said (But Nobody Did)", written by Keith Lancaster and sung by Acapella, says, "Anybody could do all the good things that nobody did." It is sad but true that many things are are left undone because too many are willing to say, "Somebody ought to..." when they are perfectly capable of doing it themselves. The final stanza of the song says:
Well I'm to busy so I tell everybody
The works got to get done by somebody
It Could be done by anybody
But nobody, nobody did
In this article, we will explore this problem that often handicaps the work of the local church.

"Work Out Your Own Salvation"

We know that each of us is responsible for his own salvation. No one can believe and obey for us. Jesus said, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16). Paul writes in Philippians 2:12, "...work out your own salvation with fear and trembling." Peter said to the Jews assembled on Pentecost, "Save yourselves from this untoward generation" (Acts 2:40).
So, each of us has an individual responsibility to do what he must to be saved.

"Love One Another"

Jesus said in John 13:34, "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another." He repeated this commandment in John 15:12, 17, as did Paul in Romans. 13:8, and 1 Thessalonians 4:9, Peter in 1 Peter 1:22 and John in 1 John 3:11, 23 and 1 John 4:11, 7, 11, 12 and 2 John 1:5.
The Greek word translated, one another, means "One another, reciprocally, mutually," according to Thayer. That means each of us is to love everyone else, including his enemies. Jesus said in Matthew 5:44:
