SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/02- “Our Prime Directive!” (John 13:34-35)

Premise Question: What is the undeniable, the absolute verifiable proof, that truly shows the world, all of humankind, that we, The Company of The Redeemed, are the true authentic followers of The LORD Jesus Christ?

So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” (‭John‬ ‭13‬:‭34-35‬ NLT)

The prime directive that I’m giving you to implement immediately, as a controlling influence, in your attitude and behavior towards each other, is fresh and brand new. This new command, that you exhibit openly an undying and unfailing love towards each other, should be the overarching authority and influence in your life. In the same manner that I have openly exhibited My undying and unfailing love for each of you, so too, must you openly exhibit this same love towards each other. As a direct result, of you following this new specific directive, everyone, in all of humankind, will clearly see and comprehend, without a scintilla of doubt, for it shall forever establish, that you are My true authentic followers, when you freely choose to openly exhibit an undying and unfailing love towards each other. (John 13:34-35 PDCP)

Bottom Line: It is not our eloquence of speech and soaring rhetoric, nor is it our beautiful edifices, filled with traditional, contemporary, alternative, highbrow, lowbrow or even unibrow forms of worship, that proves we are true authentic followers of Jesus Christ!

It’s not our missions and outreach programs to clothe and feed the poor, although it should be our common practice to do so; nor is it even our higher institutions of learning, training and doctrinal purity, in preparation for ministry and mission, that is the proof!

The prime directive/command, which trumps everything else we may say or do, in regards to what our attitude should be and how we are to approach, treat, honor and comport ourselves towards one another and the world; and that we, The Company of The Redeemed, have been given to completely satisfy and fulfill, is the one that has been clearly put on display, described, delineated and defined, for all to see, by the ultimate example of true authentic love, our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ!

It’s time for all of us to get on board His true authentic love train, in order to be trained by His true authentic love, the love He has shown for us, and which, has been put on display for all the world to see!

We then, must ourselves prove that we have this true authentic love, which is The LORD’S love, that He’s shown towards us, and, that now we should put on display towards one another; showing all of humankind that we are His true authentic followers, by the exhibition of this very same love! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 06/01- “The Ordinary Becomes The Extraordinary!” (Acts 4:13)

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/01- “The Ordinary Becomes The Extraordinary!” (Acts 4:13)

Premise Question: Just how does the ordinary transform into the extraordinary; the everyday commonplace become the amazing and remarkably uncommon, thus giving way to a surprising rise of producing the exceptional, the astounding and the wonderful?

The members of the council were amazed when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, for they could see that they were ordinary men with no special training in the Scriptures. They also recognized them as men who had been with Jesus. (‭Acts of the Apostles‬ ‭4‬:‭13‬ NLT)

What the members of the ruling council of men perceived with their own eyes and understanding dumbfounded and flabbergasted them, for what was standing before them were two undistinguished, quite unexceptional common place, run of the mill, with a woeful lack of education, as well as being somewhat inferior, to them, men, Peter and John, full of bold courage, without timidity or fear, and who overwhelmed the council with their presence; causing them to observe and notice that these men exhibited, with distinction, characteristics of speaking and acting with the same authority and power of The One they had interaction with and had been close companions of, so, therefore, they were no longer just ordinary men, but had become extraordinary, because they had been been with Jesus! (Acts 4:13 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Take note: Just as the members of the ruling council took note of the obvious and undeniable dramatic transformation that had taken place in the disciples lives, even though they had not had any formal education or specialized training and instruction in the Holy Scriptures, but they did have, was that they had just spent the last three plus years with Jesus; so too, should we, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, take note and accept as factual reality, that it will make a huge difference in our own effectiveness, and how others will perceive and respond to us, based upon how we spend our time, what we spend our time doing and who we spend our time with!

We are only truly renewed by and through Papa God’s Word! We are only truly effective when we are empowered by His Spirit and we are only truly filled with His joy, peace and wisdom, when we invite the very presence of The LORD to take up residence and make His home in our hearts, within the within, dwelling in our innermost being!

So, in order for this transformation to fully come to fruition, in our individual lives, where the ordinary becomes the extraordinary, and our timidity turns into boldness and courage, and the unimpressive becoming the amazingly impressive and it then truly becomes completely obvious and apparent to everyone just how different we are, it will be directly connected and a direct result of spending our time with The LORD in prayer, His Word and in worship.

Therefore, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, we all must and need to accept and understand that there is great significance in how and what we spend our time doing and who we spend our time with!

Remember, whatever presence you practice, will bear fruit in your life! Blessings…
