SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/03/15- “A Potent And Persuasive Admonition!” (Romans 12:3)
Premise Question: Why is it so very important to not think of yourself as being superior to others, and that you be real, authentic and honest in your own appraisal of yourself?
Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us. (Romans 12:3 NLT)
Because of The LORD’S unmerited favor and jurisdiction, that He personally gave to me, in a spectacular and serendipitous manner, I am compelled to share this instructive and extremely vital exhortation and admonition with you: do not ever consider yourself above or better than someone else, by thinking that you are in some way superior to them in virtue, or significantly more valuable and important than they are. But rather, exhibit wisdom, humility, propriety, self-control and restraint, by refusing to think of yourself in that way; always choosing to be in alignment and complete agreement with, while conforming to, the very measure of faith that Papa God, The Sovereign LORD God Almighty has given to each one of us. (Romans 12:3 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Recognizing, accepting and fully complying with the authority and jurisdiction of the Apostle Paul’s potent and persuasive exhortation and vital admonition to us; will produce many blessings and benefits, along with wonderfully efficacious results in our lives and ministry and is ultimately quite pleasing to Papa God. Therefore, it is of the greatest importance that we always be genuinely authentic in our faith, in our approach and in our perception of others, refusing to ever believe that we are superior to them. We should be ethically honorable and completely straightforward when it comes to how we look at, adjudicate and perceive ourselves, always making sure that we are open and honest, when accessing and appraising ourselves, by calculating and gauging our lives, by how it measures up to and comes into alignment with, the faith that each of us has been personally given by Papa God. Remember, all of us have been redeemed because of Papa God’s unfailing love, by and through His gracious favor and great and undeserved mercy! So, let us take this warning to heart and practice, and never be subject to thinking too highly of ourselves, or that we are more deserving and virtuous than that of others. Blessings…
