SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/11- “RPG—ACT, Weapons That We Should Utilize For Good!” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
Premise Question: Why is it so important that we choose to express ourselves in the appropriate way and manner when using the spiritual weapons of RPG and ACT; and just what is an RPG and ACT?
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NIV)
Rejoice and be glad, taking and expressing great delight always, on every occasion, without exception, every time, anytime, all the time, pray earnest spiritual prayers, offering up devout supplications, entreaties and petitions continually, without cessation, give, without expecting anything in return, expressing heartfelt thanks in any and all circumstances, regardless of existing conditions, events or situations; for this is Papa God’s desired purpose and will for your life, in His Son, Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 PDCP)
Bottom Line: One of the greatest and most powerfully effective weapons that we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, have available to us to utilize is gratitude! Gratitude is hope expressed; therefore, being grateful to Papa God will produce the greatest benefits and most desired results in our lives and the lives of others. Gratitude will produce hope in the most difficult of situations and circumstances. But, in order to produce a hope that will not disappoint, gratitude will have to be expressed, not depressed or repressed, perhaps though, at times, compressed, as it may be tested and pressured, put in a press, or a grinder, in order to be expressed, squeezed, heated, pressurized or crushed, but the results will extract and produce a wonderful aroma and goodness, transforming it into something that is quite useful, as it becomes a beneficial blessing to many others.
Here are just a few examples to consider: the coffee bean is roasted, put in a grinder and brewed, the grape is crushed, the popcorn kernel is pressurized and heated, the orange, lemon, lime and grapefruit are squeezed, all of this must take place before the goodness of each is expressed and extracted out, in order to become useful and a beneficial blessing.
So, here’s how we will show and express our gratitude to Papa God: We should RPG and ACT…
RPG—Rejoice-Pray-Give: Rejoice on every occasion; Pray earnestly and about everything; Give generously at every opportunity.
ACT—Always, without exception; Continually, perpetually and without ceasing be: Thankful in every situation and circumstance, regardless the existing conditions. By doing this faithfully, we will utilize these weapons of our warfare most prudently, judiciously and effectively and also fulfill Papa God’s will and purpose for our lives, in Christ Jesus. Blessings…
