Your daily goal:
Philippians 3:14 “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
(Monday-Friday, from my morning quiet time, I will write a short thought for that day which I pray God will use to motivate you to ‘GO’ for that day. Your objective is simple…to GO…to GO OUT and share the love of Christ with someone in that day….to GO and bear fruit …to be light to the world.)
Today’s Daily Light
Has, Have, and Had (remember all the past, present, future..and simple and perfect jargon related to proper use of grammar?… ugghh!)
English Grammar 101 (dialogue from a popular English Grammar online ‘help’ site.. Diana the grammar expert responding to Nick…)
I always have problems thinking about the use of has, have, had in a sentence. Could you please help me with this? Thanks – Nick
Hi Nick. The difference is in terms of tense and subject.
First, you have to make sure that you understand the tense that you are using. For example; If you use has alone it is referring to the “third person” and saying that that person possesses something.
(She has a beautiful car.)
When we use have we are either talking about ourselves or the general idea of possessing something
(I have a great husband. It would be nice to have a bigger house).
Had on the other hand is referring to something that was possessed in the past…but not now.
(I had a good job…but now I don’t).
Generally speaking the only difference is the time frame or tense that you need to use and also who is being referred to.
Now…move to: Eternal Theological Truth 101
1 John 5:11-12 The Apostle John wrote “And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who hasthe Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.”
say it with me… he who HAS the SON HAS life…..he who HAS the Son HAS life. Got it? YOU/WE the third person…we possess somebody…not some ‘thing’. We possess the Son of God…and more wonderfully…He HAS/possesses us.
So..in this fine day..another day….’Go’ out and tell those who do not possess the Son and thus do not have eternal life…go tell them how they can possess the Son 😊 Amen
