Reformed Churches Guilty of Neglecting the Imperative

"Indeed, if the liberal church has been guilty of emphasizing the imperative at the expense of the indicative, the Reformed church has, to some extent, been guilty of emphasizing the indicative at the expense of the imperative." - Carrick, IP, p107.

Jesus, Paul, and the apostles, all were masters of taking the truth of God's Word and then applying it to the men and women they were speaking or writing to.  They had no problem working with application in their sermons - things to be believed, new ways to see the world and one's circumstances, and actions that needed to be taken.
