Ephesians 6:10: Finally, my bretheren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
There is a brief disciplining in the previous verses about child/parent, master/servant relationships. Then, Paul says to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
Irrespective of the positions or the titles that we possess, we must remember to be strong in the Lord. When we are strong in the Lord, we learn to understand the power of His might. Being strong in the Lord helps us to throw away our old human nature of being oppressive or in the way of how we deal our elders and/or subordinates. Our character should be such that it is strong enough for Christ’s power to be revealed through us. When someone wrongs us or insults us, the way we respond to it is who we really are. How we respond to different situations determines how deep our relationship with Christ is and how strong we are in Him.
When we are strong in the Lord and in the power of His might, we will have strength to love and serve those around us even if they are our subordinates or those of lesser status. Make it a deliberate effort to love people from your heart just like how Jesus did.
