SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/07/15- “Leave An Example, A Legacy To Be Followed And Emulated By Others, Of Working Hard, Always Endeavoring, To Give Relief And Remedy To Those In Need!” (Acts 20:35 PDCP)
Premise Question: What will be said and remembered about the example that we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, leave as a legacy for others to see and follow, with regards to our diligence, devotion and earnest effort, of working hard, to make sure that we’ve met the needs of others, with the needed provision, teaching/mentoring, nurturing and the appropriate help that will enable them to successfully overcome the challenges of life?
And I have been a constant example of how you can help those in need by working hard. You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ” (Acts of the Apostles 20:35 NLT)
As I, Paul, have not ever wavered in my effort and great exertion, always striving and endeavoring to be completely reliable, persistent and perpetually consistent, in setting the perfect example, which should be followed by everyone, of how to serve and contribute, in order to bring relief and remedy to those who are in great peril and need; I also exhort you to be wise and really prudent, which will be extremely pleasing to Papa God, for all of us to recall the strong word of exhortation and the perfect example left, by The LORD Jesus, when He declared: “It is much more blissful, being full of supreme joy and great favor, to provide for and facilitate the needs of others, rather than, having your own needs furnished and provided by others; for the greatest blessing is in the giving, not the receiving!” (Acts 20:35 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The answer to the Premise Question is quite simple: Love and serve Papa God and love and serve people! (Matthew 22:37-40, 1 John 4:11) Treat others as you would prefer others to treat you! (Matthew 7:12, “The Golden Rule”) Accept what Papa God says is good and what He requires and expects from us, which is: Do what is just and right, with integrity; constantly show lovingkindness and mercy towards others; and last but not least, clothe yourself with humility, by walking in devoted obedience and in sweet fellowship, with Papa God! (Micah 6:8) Do these things faithfully and with consistence, and you will leave a wonderful example and legacy for others to emulate and follow! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 03/17/15- “Don’t Stop Now, Don’t Ever Stop!” (Philippians 4:9)
Premise Question: What are some of the highlighted things, that we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, have learned, received and heard about, from the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Philippians, and now, subsequently, also see modeled in others, that we ought to perpetually put into practice, in our everyday lives, in order to experience Papa God’s comforting presence and His perfect peace?
Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you. (Philippians 4:9 NLT)
Safeguard, by holding securely in your grasp and refusing to ever let go of, all that you’ve received, been taught and caught, as well as, been shown by me and my example, of what I’m doing and have done. Do this, by perpetually putting it into practice, in your daily walk, with the blessed result of becoming well versed in everything. Then, you can fully expect to experience the comforting presence and perfect peace of Papa God. (Philippians 4:9 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Here are just a few highlighted things we ought to perpetually put into practice, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, in order to fully experience Papa God’s comforting presence and perfect peace: Stay true to The LORD, settle your disagreements, seek peace, tell others about the Good News and supply the needs of those who have devoted their lives to sharing the Good News of The Gospel with others. Be considerate and joyful, no matter what, don’t worry about anything, pray about everything. Tell Papa God what you need and thank Him for all that He’s done. Stay focussed upon The LORD and the work He’s called you to. Watch out for those who would do evil and follow those who set a good example, by choosing to do good. Depend on your faith in The LORD, for your righteousness, not yourself or the law. Forget the past and look forward to what The LORD has in store for you, and finally, don’t ever stop learning, don’t ever stop doing good! Practice, Practice, Practice! Learn by doing and follow closely the righteous example of others! (Philippians 3-4) Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 03/15/15- “Teach Me!” (Psalms 143:10)
Premise Question: When we ask Papa God to teach us and to keep our feet on firm footing, does that necessarily mean that our path will always be smooth, without any ruts, cracks, bumps, or one that’s fraught with danger, peril and difficult challenges?
Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing. (Psalms 143:10 NLT)
Instruct me, your humble and reliant servant, to always desire to do your bidding, in order to fulfill Your will and purpose for my life, by putting You, O LORD, first and foremost in everything in my life’s journey. For You and You alone are my Almighty Sovereign Papa God, there is no other! I ask that Your loving and most merciful, being full of gracious favor, Holy Spirit would always direct and guide every step I take, upon the path forward, of my sojourn in this life. No matter what I may encounter upon the path You’ve chosen for me, I humbly request that You keep my feet from stumbling off or straying from, Your path. (Psalm 143:10 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Quick answer to the Premise Question: NOPE! But Papa God has given us many assurances that we should not be frightened, concerned or overwhelmed, with what we may face or encounter, while traveling upon our path in life. After all, He has clearly told us that we would have trouble, trial and tribulation in this life, but He also said not to worry about any of that, because He has overcome all of it for us! (John 14:1,16:33) For even in the midst of all of it, He is faithful to give us His joy, peace and comfort.
(1 Thessalonians 3:3-8) For He promises to never abandon or forsake us. (Deuteronomy 31:6, Hebrews 13:5) We are told not, at any time or any occasion or circumstance, to fear evil or what may happen to us, for He, The LORD, will always be there beside us! (Psalm 23) And finally: We should start every day, with Psalm 40:8, as our opening salvo, in our daily prayers. The message of this verse is: That it should be our utmost desire to do His will, above all else, each and every moment, of each and every day! “Teach Me!”
