You may be asking, "What is the application in this?" Learning about the use of passive impera- tive verbs can really help us in difficult situations. It would no longer seem like an empty encourage- ment in the midst of a storm in your life to be told, "Be strong, hang in there, God's got this!" Because now we realize that while that is some- thing I am commanded to do, it is also a reminder of the strength that has been given to me to do it. "You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ lesus." That would no longer solicit the response of "You don't know what I'm going through!" Instead, the response would be, "Thanks for the reminder" Paul was telling Timothy to get back in the game and depend on Christ's strength instead of his own. No matter what you are going through today, regardless of how dif- P' je 7B ficult the cir ces " are, if you h ia+! sonal " relationship Wifl Jesus Christ as yourLord +agd Savior, I can givc]zOU the " encouragement without . knowing anything else about you, to "be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus." I do not have to know anything about your strength, I know about His! It is limitless! Rev. Brian Moore is senior pastor of New Providence Baptist Church, 2560 Hwy. 41 S, Smarr.
