SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/29- “Humility Is The Way—And Don’t Ever Worry!” (1 Peter 5:6-7)

Premise Question: Just how important is it for us, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, to humble ourselves under the mighty hand of Papa God, and then, to not worry, be offended or be anxious about anything?

“So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” (‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭5:6-7‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

You will do well, and, do yourself a huge favor, when approaching The LORD, to come before Him with a humble and contrite spirit; serving and putting The LORD and then others, before and above yourself is the key, and that, without pride or arrogance, but with a gentleness, meekness and a respectful submissive attitude. Consequently, by submitting yourself underneath Papa God’s superior ability, skill, power, strength, authority, His unique purpose and specific divine will for your life, in such a manner, He will support and undergird you, by lifting you up and placing you in the perfect position, in order to accomplish His unique purpose and divine will for your life. There is one caveat, though, He will not do this in your time frame, but in His perfect timing, when it is due, on time, and not a moment before or after His appointed time. So, don’t spend any valuable time or resources on expending yourself in worrisome anxious thoughts or activities, trying to please others, but leave all of that anxiety with The LORD, and accept the truth, that He loves and cares for you much more than anyone else ever could or would even have the capacity or ability to do so. (1 Peter 5:6-7 PDCP)

Bottom Line: In humility, love and serve Papa God—The LORD GOD Almighty, first and foremost, with your whole heart, mind and strength, in your life!

Then, love and serve others, as a humble, gracious and most grateful servant of The Most High. Leave the timing of any and all promotions up to The LORD, and definitely don’t waste any time or resources on being anxious or offended about anything, in your life, because He, The LORD, truly loves and cares for you much more than you could ever imagine or even begin to comprehend!

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/16- “A Faith That Pleases Papa God!” (Hebrews 11:6)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/16- “A Faith That Pleases Papa God!” (Hebrews 11:6)

Premise Question: Is your faith pleasing and award worthy to Papa God?

“And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.” (‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭11:6‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

And if it be your great aim and desire, in your life, to please Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, with your life, then, when you humbly, but with boldness, approach His Splendid Magnificence, you must first exhibit an authentic strong belief and certitude in the reality of His existence; for without an authentic faith, it’s quite absurd, as well as a complete exercise in futility, to ever think you’ll have any success in pleasing Him! And, futhermore, there is one other premise to fully understand and accept, for it is a promise that He, Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Himself, shall fulfill, that is: He will always give a just recompense award, to all those who intentionally make it their purpose and life’s quest, to diligently pursue Him and to do His will. (Hebrews 11:6 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Our greatest quest, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, (being our most sincere desire and aim in life) should always be, to please Papa God—The LORD GOD Almighty, by exhibiting a faith that not only believes He exists, but is also diligently devoted to willingly do His bidding, in order to fulfill and accomplish completely, His divine purpose and will for our lives. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/28- “Give All Praise, All Glory, All Thanks And All Worship, Unto The King Eternal!” (Psalms 100:4-5)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/28- “Give All Praise, All Glory, All Thanks And All Worship, Unto The King Eternal!” (Psalms 100:4-5)

Premise Question: What must one do, in order to secure seeing and fully experiencing the unfailing love and faithfulness, the wonderful presence and benevolent goodness of The LORD, who is The King Eternal—ad infinitum, without end or limits?

“Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation.”
(‭‭Psalms‬ ‭100:4-5‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

No one is ever allowed to enter into the presence of The LORD GOD Almighty except, by and through the gate, (the door) which Papa God has offered to and provided for all of humankind to enter into, namely, The Name of The LORD! Therefore, when one enters through this gate, it should be with a heart full of thanksgiving and gratitude. And, once one is inside, in the midst of Papa God’s Kingdom, there in The courts of The King Eternal, exuberant, boisterous and outrageous praise and worship should be continually offered up to Him; with many expressions of thanks being declared, along with multiple proclamations of exulted praise that’s offered up unto The Name that is above every other name. For The Name of The LORD GOD Almighty is full of gracious benevolence and His unfailing, as well as undying love for all of us, shall endure throughout and even beyond every generation; faithfully, forever and ever, without end. (Psalms 100:4-5 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The entire one-hundredth Psalm gives us a succinct and most beautiful picture of what The LORD requires and desires for us to do, in order to fully secure, that we will see and experience His unfailing love and great faithfulness, as well as, being able to enter into His glorious wonderful presence and be the blessed recipient of His benevolent goodness, ad infinitum, without end or limits.

Here it is: Shout for joy, unto The LORD! Worship The LORD, with a glad and free heart!

Always come before Him, with joyful singing, that emanates from a heart full of gratitude and thanksgiving!

Be ever vigilant to continually acknowledge The LORD as being The One and Only True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty!

Make it your daily practice and sincere activity to enter into the entrance of His presence with thanksgiving, and then, go further and deeper into His very courts, praising Him, giving thanks to Him, exalting and extolling His Name above all else; because The LORD is good, and His benevolent mercy and grace extends and endures, ad infinitum, without end or limits, throughout all generations. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/25- “Stand Firm, Stay Fixed And Focussed, Serve Fully, Achieve Success!” (1 Corinthians 15:58)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/25- “Stand Firm, Stay Fixed And Focussed, Serve Fully, Achieve Success!” (1 Corinthians 15:58)

Premise Question: What does it truly mean and entail, to be strong and immovable, and that, whenever, wherever and whatever we are involved in, when doing the work of The LORD, we are to always exhibit great joy and enthusiasm, as a member of The Company of The Redeemed, while doing the work of The LORD?

“So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.” (‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭15:58‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Consequently, my dearly beloved and greatly cherished brothers and sisters, who are all members in good standing, of The Company of The Redeemed; as a direct result of our guaranteed success of ultimate victory being granted to us through Jesus Christ The LORD: Stand firm and upright in your gloriously attained position, not yielding, one iota. Stay fixed and laser focussed, without ever wavering, being impervious to any and all things that may attempt to get you to take a detour or alter your course, change your perspective or leave your post. Serve fully, giving yourselves in complete abandonment, holding nothing back, or in reserve, (“burn the plough”) being ever vigilant, constantly consistent and entirely tireless, in your relentless, persistent pursuit of your spiritual endeavor and vital undertaking, in order to complete every critical assignment, and then, fulfill the divine purpose of The LORD; because you are well aware that your struggle and diligent effort, in doing The LORD’s work, is not done in futility, but will, for you, as well as the multiplied of many others, achieve success, not only for the here and now, but also throughout all of eternity. (1 Corinthians 15:58 PDCP)

Bottom Line: To be strong and immovable means that we are not going to wilt or wane, give up, give in, quit or just throw the proverbial towel in, when challenged or tempted, by the difficult hardships and the everyday typical vicissitudes of life.

It also means and entails, that even when we do falter, fail or succumb, by falling under the weight and giving into the pressures of what we have been assigned and tasked to do, go through or endure, we will be absolutely resilient every time, because we are resolute in our complete reliance and utter dependence upon the renewing, restoring and reconciling power, and total enabling of The One who dwells and lives deep within us—The Spirit of Christ. For it is He that has called and redeemed us out of darkness and into His glorious redemptive light, giving us new life, setting us free to worship and serve Him for all of our days; enthusiastically, with great joy and rejoicing, in all that we do and say, in this life and the life to come!

So, let us all be diligent in our determination to stand firm in our faith, stay fixed and focussed upon the divine task at hand, by abandoning ourselves fully to only worshiping and serving Him, and then, wait patiently for the ultimate result of achieving a smashing success.

Remember, when we do our part, He, The LORD, will definitely do His part! And oh, by the way, The LORD will help and enable us to accomplish our part, through the power and presence of The Holy Spirit working in and through us!

Finally, I leave you with one of my all time favorite D. L. Moody quotes: “No man (person) ever sent by God is a failure!” The point is, if you answer the call to go, even if you don’t see the results and success you were expecting, you were still a smashing success because you did what The LORD asked you to do! Therefore, we must focus on the divinely assigned task, not on the results, and whether or not we think it was a success.

Just don’t ever quit or give up! Always leave the ultimate outcome and result to The LORD! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/17- “The LORD Disciplines His Own—Because He Loves Them!” (Proverbs 3:11-12)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/17- “The LORD Disciplines His Own—Because He Loves Them!” (Proverbs 3:11-12)

Premise Question: Who of us really enjoys being disciplined, corrected, reprimanded and reproved; but, what would be the outcome if everyone that needed an appropriate rebuke, choose to truly, with joy, fully embrace the process, in an attitude of humility and complete submission?

“My child, don’t reject the LORD’s discipline, and don’t be upset when he corrects you. For the LORD corrects those he loves, just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights.” (‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:11-12‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

My dearly beloved precious child, decide right now to never refuse or ever reject The LORD GOD Almighty’s very deliberate and diligent, careful and loving, nurturing chastening of you. And, also choose to not ever become bitter or resentful of His faithful, considerate concern and resolute reproof of you; for it’s truly only done for your greatest good and benefit. Do always remember, that just like an earthly father will administer loving correction to his own children, that he delights in, so too, does Papa God only bring His merciful and loving correction upon those children whom He joyfully delights to lavish His gracious favor and unfailing love upon. (Proverbs 3:11-12 PDCP)

Bottom Line: One of the most difficult lessons, that everyone must learn, is the great value and tremendous blessings that loving, appropriate and consistent discipline brings and adds to a person’s life experience. Although it may seem quite difficult during the time the necessary correction is being administered, as it may be extremely hard to endure, once it has run its course, the wonderful, useful and greatly beneficial fruit that discipline produces in one’s life, is not only a benefit to the individual, but also to those they may come into contact with, and have interaction with, in various forms and different ways.

Remember, that The LORD never wastes anything that may happen to us or that we may go through, due to our own behavioral choices, decisions and actions or as a result of others and what they may do; that ends up having a direct affect upon our own lives.

The LORD will utilize all of it; in shaping, making, maturing and growing the individual, in order to fully accomplish His purpose, will and the unique mission in life that each of us are called to do.

So, child of Papa God, don’t ever reject, disdain or be upset when The LORD disciplines you—who are His greatly beloved and most cherished very own children, whom He joyfully delights in; and therefore will absolutely correct, discipline and appropriately reprimand, as needed, as well as, whenever and wherever it’s necessary! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/11- “Appropriate Versus Inappropriate Boasting!” (2 Corinthians 10:17-18)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/11- “Appropriate Versus Inappropriate Boasting!” (2 Corinthians 10:17-18)

Premise Question: Is it ever appropriate for someone to boast; and, if it is, who and what ought someone to be boasting about?

“As the Scriptures say, “If you want to boast, boast only about the LORD.” When people commend themselves, it doesn’t count for much. The important thing is for the Lord to commend them.” (‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭10:17-18‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Based upon the supreme authority of Papa God’s Holy Writ, nothing good will ever come from heaping praise upon yourself, by bragging about your talents, abilities and gifts, your own exploits, personal accomplishments and accolades; for it’s entirely inappropriate, as it won’t suffice or cut it and will never accomplish the desired and necessary result of being accepted, with official approval and commendation from The LORD GOD Almighty Himself! All bragging, with extravagant praise, honor, reverential worship and boasting, is only appropriate, when it is done and said about The LORD GOD Almighty, whose commendation and approval is the only one that really matters. So, “Let the one who boasts, exuberantly boast only in The LORD GOD Almighty!” (2 Corinthians 10:17-18 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Our clearly delineated, being the absolutely definitive answer to the premise question, as to whether or not it is ever appropriate to boast about something, someone or ourselves, is found within the pages of Papa God’s Holy Writ—The Holy Scriptures! According to them, it is only ever appropriate to brag and boast about The LORD GOD Almighty; His exploits, His accomplishments, His character, His righteousness, His wisdom, and His divine acts of love, mercy, grace and kindness.

Therefore, we are to most definitely, especially, boast about the splendor of His Holiness, and that, it is only through Him we have been set free and also made to be pure, holy and right with Papa God.

Not because of anything we have done or who we are, but entirely because of who He is and what He has done for each one of humankind, that truly believes, repents and confesses Him as LORD! For it is then, that eternal salvation and life is graciously granted to them, as they are instantly delivered from the powers of sin and darkness, into His glorious presence and light.

So, whether we are rich, wise, influential, powerful, full of achievements, accolades, or accomplishments, or have a lovely disposition, or even a winsome personality, any bragging, boasting, special recognition or veneration, should ever only be in and about The LORD! Period!

So yes, boasting in The LORD alone, is completely appropriate, highly encouraged and especially commanded. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/09- “Genuine, Authentic, Without Any Pretense—Real Love!” (Romans 12:9-10)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/09- “Genuine, Authentic, Without Any Pretense—Real Love!” (Romans 12:9-10)

Premise Question: Does it ever portend or bode well for anyone who chooses to act the “big pretender” by putting on airs, feigning authenticity and playing a game of pretense and make believe, and does it or will it ever really end well, by producing a good, right, just, honorable and holy result?

“Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them! Hate what is wrong! Hold tightly to what is good! Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.” (‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:9-10‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

In order for love to be characterized as being genuinely authentic—real, faithful and true, it must be free of all hypocrisy, without any pretense, falsehood or deceit. There should be an utter abhorrence, having an extreme aversion, to all that is morally wrong, detesting every evil practice; always making sure to adhere closely to actual reality, by embracing and holding on tight to all that is morally excellent, genuinely good and reliably righteous. Be strongly attached to one another, by exhibiting a loyal, affectionate and unfailing love towards each other; refusing to let go of one another. One more thing: Always choose to honor one another, with integrity, respect and, in your actions, by joyfully preferring and considering others before yourselves. (Romans 12:9-10 PDCP)

Bottom Line: When we just pretend to love someone, no matter how it looks or sounds, we are not really loving them! Our love must be sincere. And, in the same vein, it’s not enough to say we abhor, detest and despise evil, but our thoughts, actions and behaviors must prove that we hate even the appearance of evil; and therefore, shall and must refuse to participate in anywise, by grasping firmly and then holding onto all that is good, right and holy, without ever letting go of our convictions and devotion, no matter what may come our way!

Our love for each other should always be clearly reflected in the way we honorably treat, provide for and support one another. As a matter of fact, we should be more than happy to serve one another, in whatever capacity is needed, and that, with much joy and delight!

So, there should never be any pretense or faking it, in anything that we do in The Kingdom; whether it be how we approach and treat each other or in the good works of service that The LORD has ordained and purposed for us to do, in His blessed, most holy and righteous Kingdom, that He is establishing and accomplishing through us here on earth and beyond.

Let’s all choose to be genuinely authentic, without any pretense, and allow our faith to be expressed with real love towards each other and the world in which we are presently living. Blessings…
