SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/03/15- “O LORD You Are My LORD GOD And Perfect In All You Do!” (Isaiah 25:1)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/03/15- “O LORD You Are My LORD GOD And Perfect In All You Do!” (Isaiah 25:1)
Premise Question: Why should we praise The LORD GOD Almighty?
“O LORD, I will honor and praise your name, for you are my God. You do such wonderful things! You planned them long ago, and now you have accomplished them.” (Isaiah 25:1 NLT)
Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, maker of Heaven and earth and everything therein; You, O LORD, The One True GOD, are my LORD GOD! I, Your humble and grateful servant, choose to extol You, with exuberant and extravagant joyful praise and worship. I do this, by lifting my voice and heart up in exaltation of Your Holy Name, which is above every name, to the highest place of honor and recognition; for You, O LORD, are always completely faithful in performing, with extraordinarily perfect precision, every gloriously incredible and wonderful thing that You do, have done and will yet do. All this, You have done, from before the very beginning of time, being divinely purposed, planned and determined, as to what is to happen, according to Your desired will and supreme design, which has already been eternally established, even before the foundations of the world. (Isaiah 25:1 PDCP)
Bottom Line: We, the people of The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, being accepted and sealed members of The Company of The Redeemed, should, without intrepidness, shame or reserve, declare and proclaim to everyone everywhere, that He, The LORD God Almighty, is The One True God, Whom we love, honor and serve; and, that we should also be telling everyone everywhere, of His glorious gracious acts, as well as, tell all of His great love and wonderful deeds. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/02/15- “We Are Papa God’s Masterpiece—Saved By Grace—Created To Do Good Works!” (Ephesians 2:8-10)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/02/15- “We Are Papa God’s Masterpiece—Saved By Grace—Created To Do Good Works!” (Ephesians 2:8-10)
Premise Question: How did you become a legitimate member of The Company of The Redeemed, who are you, as a member of the Company of The Redeemed, and what are you to be doing, as a member of The Company of The Redeemed?
“God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” (Ephesians 2:8-10 NLT)
For it is only because of Papa God’s unmerited favor, kindness and great love shown towards you, that you’ve been rescued and redeemed from certain death, becoming an accepted and recognized member, in right standing, in The Company of The Redeemed; and this, through your personal confession of faith and belief in His Son, Jesus Christ, when you placed your complete trust and reliance on Him. And even then, it’s not based on anything that’s been generated by your good behavior, actions or deeds, for there’s not any sort of effort, work accomplishment or achievement, that you can do or attempt to do, that will ever suffice; as it is indeed, solely based entirely upon His love for you and His free merciful gift of salvation, provided by and through the mighty works of Papa God Himself and His Son. He’s done it in this way, so that there wouldn’t ever be any personal aggrandizement to be claimed by anyone; for there’s no boasting allowed, except in The LORD and what He has done. For we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, are the unique and perfectly designed masterpiece, created by the hands of the Master Himself, our Papa God Almighty in Heaven, brought forth out of darkness and renewed by His Son, Jesus Christ, for the purpose of doing His divine works of righteousness, that Papa God had in His mind, already prepared in waiting, for each of us to do, long before we were even members of The Company of The Redeemed. (Ephesians 2:8-10 PDCP)
Bottom Line: You are saved by grace, through your faith, but not on your own, for it is a gift that comes only from God, The Heavenly Father; which can’t be earned or bought, but should be sought, so that you’ll be caught, to then be taught, in order, to do and accomplish, with The LORD’S help, the work that’s been prepared and is ready in waiting, for you to begin to do. So, get to work! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/01/15- “Time To Buck Up, Soul!” (Psalms 42:11)
Premise Question: Should we really attempt to have a serious conversation with our own soul, when we are down and out, discouraged and disturbed?
“Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again— my Savior and my God!” (Psalms 42:11 NLT)
Why, O my soul, and for what earthly reason could there ever be an occasion, on which I would ever allow you to stay in a state of despondency, spiraling downward, feeling dejected, disheartened and depressed? Why, O my soul, would you perpetually be distressed, disrupted and disturbed deep within the within of my inmost being, in disharmony and in complete disarray? Listen up, here’s what you should immediately do, O my soul, because it’s what I’m going to do whether you want or are even ready for me to do so! I firmly put, I resolutely place, I fasten tightly, my complete hope, faith and trust, in and upon The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty! I determinedly do this right now, by worshiping, with exuberant and joyful praise, The LORD GOD Almighty, my Redeemer and my most merciful, loving and full of gracious favor, Papa God! (Psalms 42:11 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Yes! We need to have a serious conversation with our soul, expressing to our soul, that no matter what is going on in our life, there is nothing in this world that we should fear or be worried about; for He, The LORD Himself, will quiet and put us at perfect peace, deep within the within of the inmost part of our being. And, He, and He alone, is able to truly satisfy the hunger, quench the thirst and fulfill the deepest yearnings, longings and desires of our souls. It’s time to tell our souls to buck up! Blessings…
