SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/29/15- “All Glory Belongs To Him!” (Romans 15:7)
Premise Question: In practice, what does it actually mean for us, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, to welcome and receive each other, by being completely accepting and approving of one another, just in the same way and manner that Christ has welcomed, received, accepted and approved each one of us?
Therefore, accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that God will be given glory. (Romans 15:7 NLT)
Receive and welcome one another with open arms and hearts full of gracious approval and favor, undertaking, with great joy, the responsibilities and duties required for full acceptance, therein; just in the same way and manner that Christ, who endured The Cross and all of its shame and suffering, in order to provide everyone an encouraging blessed hope, accepts you. Consequently then, as a direct result of doing this, it establishes a mandate of conveying all glory, with one mind and voice, an offering of tribute, with great laudation, spoken and sung, from grateful hearts, filled with thanksgiving and exalted praise, unto The Most High and Glorious, Papa God! (Romans 15:7 PDCP)
Bottom Line: In practice, Jesus Christ actually welcomed, accepted, received and approved each one of us, when we were at our very worst. He was and still is, full of favor and compassion, grace and mercy, all because of His great and unfailing love that He has for all of humankind. Now, it is our turn to reciprocate the unfailing love Jesus Christ has shown toward us, by having the same welcoming love and acceptance, with compassion, mercy, gracious favor, long suffering and forbearance, as well as, a heart that is always ready to forgive and walk in release towards one another; even when it’s most difficult to do so, because of our patience and kindness being severely tested, which may make it not easy or the most pleasant thing to endure and accomplish. We must learn to do it, though, with joy, just as The LORD did!
If we are living our lives, in order to please ourselves, rather than living our lives to, first and foremost, please Papa God and then also to help each other grow and be built up in Him, we won’t succeed in what The LORD has purposed and planned for our lives. But, when we choose to accept one another, as Jesus Christ has already accepted each one of us, it will always result in bringing all honor, praise and glory to Papa God! Blessings…
