They say that the original language that the New Testament was written in was the perfect language to use for all time to get the clear meaning across to the readers. God is so perfect in everything He does. For Jesus to come in to this world at the perfect time when the Greek language was being used so that His story would be told accurately is a wonderful thought. It is always great to see how God is so in control of everything. You can learn a lot of important things by going back to the Greek. For instance, take a look at Philippians 4:12-13.
12 I know both how to have a little, and I know how to have a lot. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret [of being content]—whether well-fed or hungry, whether in abundance or in need. 13 I am able to do all things through Him who strengthens me.
There are so many of us that can quote Philippians 4:13 from memory. It is one of those verses that encourages us when we are about to take on something beyond our normal means. In the Greek language the most important words are first in the sentence. In this particular verse the first words are “all things”. In other words “All things I can do.” What an encouragement to know that I can do all things. Not some, but all. If Christ gives us an assignment, there is no doubt that we can do it. Let’s say that He wants you to tell your neighbor about Him. You have never witnessed before. You have never attended a training class on how to share the gospel, etc. Well, now you know there is no doubt that you will have the ability to share the gospel with your neighbor. This verse also contains the words “Him who strengthens me”. The reason we can do all things is due to the fact that Christ strengthens me. What a great encouragement this verse is. Memorize it. Take it to heart and apply it to all that Christ calls you to do.
