SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/30-“Papa God Gives Us The Desire And Power To Do What Pleases Him!” (Philippians 2:12-13)
Premise Question: What are each of us, as individual members of The Company of The Redeemed, directly responsible for, with regards to pleasing Papa God, and fulfilling His purpose and will for our lives, and what must we do, in order to fulfill our own part in the process of our own personal sanctification; and then, what is Papa God’s declared and defined role of what He has promised to faithfully do and be personally responsible for, in the process of each of our own individual personal sanctification?
Dear friends, you always followed my instructions when I was with you. And now that I am away, it is even more important. Work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear. For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. (Philippians 2:12-13 NLT)
My beloved and most cherished close friends, I greatly appreciate that whether I’m in your presence or not, you continue to understand the importance of conducting yourselves in a manner worthy of honor and recognition. Therefore, I encourage you to carry on, in your persistent and enduring effort, to bring about, with the help of The LORD, the complete sanctification of your soul. Do this, with much reverential awe and affect, so that, a true and total transformation of your life will take effect. Remembering always, that it is Papa God who acts on your behalf, in you, through His Spirit’s enabling powerful influence, which grants and gives you the tools and desires, making it possible for you to be grounded and established in Him; in order to bring to fruition, finally, the realization of the fulfillment of His morally excellent, intended desired result, which is, His heavenly inspired, divinely designed, perfect will and purpose for your life. (Philippians 2:12-13 PDCP)
Bottom Line: What is our part and our individual responsibility? Love Papa God, love people and love mercy and compassion. Know and follow the instructions and commands we’ve been given in His Word. Understand and accept that no one can do it on their own or in their own strength.
So, learn to rely upon the gracious favor of The LORD and His enabling power, presence and guiding influence of Word and His Holy Spirit.
When The LORD says that He will give you the true desires of your heart, He means that He will fulfill and give you the heavenly inspired, divinely designed, true desires that He has personally placed in your heart, and purposed just for you. But, this only happens when we choose to do our part, which is, doing what is just, right and honorable, in His sight, by coming into complete compliance, with regards to obeying His Word and then, by learning to utterly rely upon the leading and guiding influence of His Holy Spirit!
As for Papa God’s part, His responsibility and role, in the process of sanctification; He has already done and will continue to faithfully do His part, in fulfilling and making sure He satisfies every one of the promises He’s made, with regards to helping each of us, individually, reach full and complete sanctification of our souls, by literally giving us the desires and the power to do it, thus, with the most honorable and righteous result of pleasing Him, by fulfilling His purpose and will for our lives. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/03- “Papa God’s Love, Put On Display, For All To See!” (Romans 5:8)
Premise Question: Why did Papa God put on such a remarkable, spectacular exhibition and display, of His magnanimity, His incomparable gracious favor and His marvelous love, for all to clearly see?
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. (Romans 5:8 NLT)
Even so, Papa God clearly proved and made it known to everyone everywhere, with a spectacularly huge in magnitude, being utterly incomparable, display of His extravagantly magnanimous perfect love for all of humankind, by dispatching from Heaven, His One and only Son, The Agent of righteous redemption, The Anointed One, to hang upon a cruel cross for each and everyone of our sinful transgressions. And, that’s not all, for incredible as it may seem, He actually did this, amazingly enough, even while we were at our very worst and still His enemies; being in a helpless, hapless, hopeless and completely unrepentant and unredeemed deathlike state. (Romans 5:8 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Why? Because of this one great preeminent desire and divine purpose: The salvation and complete redemption of all of humankind; restoring, renewing and healing the breach, spanning the chasm, reconciling and bringing back to life, into a right and loving relationship with Papa God, in order to fully experience satisfying sweet fellowship, with His greatly cherished, being most precious and dearly loved, made in His own image, creation, His heart’s desire, humankind! (John 3:16) Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/06/15- “Note To Self—Then Too Everyone Else!” (James 1:2-3)
Premise Question: Is there ever any good thing that can come, when we, The Company of The Redeemed, choose to complain, mumble, grumble or groan; rather than, looking at it with joy and considering it a privileged opportunity to grow and see the purpose and will of Papa God revealed in us?
“Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.” (James 1:2-3 NLT)
Acknowledge, accept and embrace the difficult times in your life. Recognize them all, as honored and privileged opportunities, to experience the ultimate in pure delight, with great felicity, my dearly beloved fellow members in The Company of The Redeemed. For whenever, whomever and wherever you may encounter these difficult people and times, which will be hardships that are numerous, varied and sundry in kind, don’t ever let any of it, in any way, throttle or disable you, due to the reality of what you should already be aware, “au courant” of and familiar with; that being, the ongoing process, in your sojourn and walk of faith, of the evaluation and verification of your full confidence and complete trust and reliance that you’ve placed upon and in The LORD GOD Almighty. This then, will have the perfect result and effect of bringing into existence into your life, not just a lofty desire, thought or wonderful aspiration, but a valiant tenacious courage, a resolute determination and steady persistence, which will empower you, enabling you to stay on, not stray from, and to walk uprightly upon the path of Papa God’s divine purpose for your life. (James 1:2-3 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Nope! Complaining, mumbling, grumbling and groaning has never brought or bought anything good or righteous into our lives! Therefore, here’s something for everyone of us to seriously consider, then diligently, with devotion and dogged determination, follow! Note to self, then to everyone else: no more giving into moaning and groaning, mumbling and grumbling, bumbling and stumbling, crumbling into a heap of desperation and despair, being depressed and oppressed, completely suppressed, kept under duress. But, choose to joyfully accept, embrace and endure the hardships in your life, as part and partial of the process, for they are only a trace of Papa God’s unique and divine purpose being fully accomplished, in your sojourn of this life. So, choose to always rejoice in the midst of your ordeal and trial, knowing full well, that His perfect purpose is soon to be fulfilled. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/20/15- “A Spiritual Drink In A Dry Land!” (Psalm 63:1)
Premise Question: Where else can a person, who is effected by the common human condition, go or run to but to The LORD; in a land that is scorched and distressed, because it is deprived of and lacks any hunger satisfying or thirst quenching spiritual sustenance and drink?
“O God, you are my God; I earnestly search for you. My soul thirsts for you; my whole body longs for you in this parched and weary land where there is no water.” (Psalms 63:1 NLT)
You, O Sovereign LORD, The Almighty Papa God, Maker of Heaven and earth and everything therein, You are my God, The One who created me to worship, honor and serve You; therefore, it is with the most serious intention, and divinely inspired purpose, that I am on the ultimate quest to find and discover who You are. I have an insatiable craving, along with an unquenchable thirsting for You and Your Manifest Presence; as my entire being, my spirit, soul and body yearns, aches and is in desperate need of You, in this indifferent, lacking any sustenance or moisture, very dry, cracked and parched land, where drought persists, with no spiritual drink to refresh and renew my whole being, spirit, soul and body. (Psalm 63:1 PDCP)
Bottom Line: All of humankind is effected by a common human condition, that of desperately looking to satisfy, and quench a hunger and thirsting deep within their very souls. Every person experiences this extreme craving of a deep urgent hunger, with an unquenchable thirsting, that is buried deep, within the within, of their innermost being. There are, for humankind, no other viable options or alternatives; for it is only, Papa God, The Creator, that can fill the space and void that’s deep within each person, as it was His divine design and purpose that created the cravings, the deep yearning and desire of hungering and thirsting for His Presence, in every person; which when diligently pursued, leads to a hunger satisfying, thirst quenching, life fulfilling, joyful existence, experiencing the very essence of the best that this life has to offer! Remember, wherever the water flows, there is life! So, ask The LORD for a cool, refreshing and renewing spiritual drink, to satisfy and quench your urgent insatiable hunger and unquenchable thirst, in this scorched, dry and extremely parched land! Blessings…
