SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/24- “There Is No End In Sight, To Papa God’s Great Love For Us!” (1 Chronicles 16:34)

Premise Question: Why ought and do we give thanks to The LORD?

“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.”
(‭‭1 Chronicles‬ ‭16:34‬ ‭NLT‬)

Heap upon, by continuously piling high lavishly, sacrificial offerings of appreciation, thanksgiving and gratefulness, for He, The LORD GOD Almighty, is the epitome of goodness, the One true pure source of all that is good, right and holy, as He is the exact representation of what it is to be morally excellent. His great love, which never fails, is always full of grace, mercy and loving kindness, and shall never give out, run out, give up or quit on us, as it is everlasting to everlasting: Eternal and without an expiration date, as it is without end, and with the end of His great love, mercy and grace not ever being in sight. (1 Chronicles 16:34 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Because there is no end in sight to His great love, mercy and grace for us, there should not ever be a cessation of our expressions of thanks to Him for His goodness and loving kindness!

And, futhermore, because no matter how much thanks we lavishly heap upon Him, for what He has done for us, He, The LORD, would deserve so much more and would therefore, never ever be sufficient! In another words, we can’t ever thank or praise Him enough, so don’t stop now, don’t ever stop continually offering up thanksgiving and praise to Him! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/11- “Salvation Is Our Ultimate Reward!” (1 Peter 1:8-9)

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: 11/11- “Salvation Is Our Ultimate Reward!” (1 Peter 1:8-9)

Premise Question: What is our sure and certain reward, how do we qualify for it, and what kind of affect/effect does it have on us, and produce in us, now, as well as into our eternal future and beyond?

“You love him even though you have never seen him. Though you do not see him now, you trust him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy. The reward for trusting him will be the salvation of your souls.” (‭1 Peter‬ ‭1:8-9‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Even given the fact that you’ve never actually seen The LORD Jesus Christ in person, you still love, honor and worship Him, with everything that is within you. And though you presently are not able to see Him in the flesh, your belief, trust and unshakable faith in Him causes an explosion of joy to go off inside of you, deep within the within, of the innermost part of your being, that fills you to overflowing, with His fountain of living water, His wonderful glorious presence, which there are no words that can be uttered that will even begin to adequately express what you are receiving and experiencing from The LORD. For this is what comes forth in your life, as a consequence of yielding and surrendering to Him when you’ve placed your complete trust and faith in Him; even your redemption, the eternal salvation of your entire being—spirit, soul and body. (1 Peter 1:8-9 PDCP)

Bottom Line: All glory honor and praise belongs to The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, maker of heaven and earth and everything therein and even beyond, and who has provided a way of escape from death, hell and the grave, deliverance from all sin, darkness, captivity and bondage, for all those who will call upon The Name of The LORD, by placing their complete trust, hope, faith and reliance in and on The Name of The LORD—Jesus Christ!

Our sure and certain reward is eternal salvation—the total and complete redemption of our spirit soul and body! We are saved…regeneration of our spirit…we are being saved…sanctification of our soul…we will be saved, glorification of our body.

We are pre-qualified for our reward, as long as we simply put our complete reliance, faith, trust and hope in Him, by calling upon His Name—Jesus Christ, confessing our sin and believing in our heart that Jesus is The LORD.

The affect/effect that this decision to trust The LORD Jesus Christ with our eternal soul, is one of total exultation, outrageous celebration, completely enjoyable, being so full of joy that it is impossible to describe with mere words; for it is so wonderfully glorious that no amount of words or any type or kind of words expressed would do it justice, as it is far beyond our capability to do so! Our decision to trust in The LORD produces in us an assurance and peace that surpasses all comprehension and understanding!

Therefore, rejoice, celebrate, take delight, for our resplendent, being more than marvelous, magnificently brilliant, redemptive salvation, our ultimate reward, is drawing nigh! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/08- “Love And Embrace The LORD’s Discipline!” (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: 11/08- “Love And Embrace The LORD’s Discipline!” (Proverbs 3:11-12)

Premise Question: Why, and for what specific purpose, does The LORD discipline those He cherishes and loves, and how should one respond to The LORD’s discipline, when on the receiving end?

“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 most beloved and precious child, do not regard with contempt, disdain or disgust, The LORD’s faithful instruction and training in righteousness; for it is for your greatest good and benefit, as it produces godliness in you. Rather, welcome and embrace it! Don’t try to hide from it, escape or avoid it, but always relish and revel in it. Be ever thankful for it and take it as a wonderful sign, an indication and beautiful expression, of His great love for you. Furthermore, don’t ever try to circumvent, obfuscate, finagle or manipulate it, but always quickly accept and yield to it, with a grateful heart, for you’ll be better off, in so doing. And, whatever you do, refuse to take offense or be annoyed, irritated, irked or indignant, when The LORD decides to reprimand you because of His disapproval of your ungodly behaviors, actions and attitudes. For He only ever brings His directed correction into the lives of those He truly cherishes and dearly loves. Even as a loving and caring earthly parent will administer carefully crafted correction to their own precious child, whom they take the greatest of pleasure, enjoyment and contentment in, knowing that the discipline they administer will bring much benefit to the child, so too, it is for this very reason, that The LORD faithfully administers, with great care, His loving discipline to His own beloved and cherished children. (Proverbs 3:11-12 PDCP)

Bottom Line: The simple and most obvious reason why The LORD disciplines those He loves is, because His greatest desire is to have a holy, honorable, right, good, satisfying, flourishing and completely fulfilling relationship, with a strong unbreakable connection, that will not ever be disconnected, discontinued or broken, with them.

The LORD derives His greatest pleasure and delight from interacting, protecting, providing for and seeing His very own unique creation, revel, rejoice and succeed in life.

He, The LORD GOD—The Creator, absolutely adores us, as He has placed His great love and strong affinity for us above all others and everything else in His creation; whether they be in Heaven or on earth.

The LORD GOD’s allegiance and unfailing love for all of humankind, is clearly shown towards and put on display, for all to see and personally experience, by not holding His best back from them, but freely offering the very best of Himself, in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ and the power and personal presence of His Holy Spirit, to redeem, lead, guide, direct and help them in their daily lives. In all of this, He proves His undying love, care and concern for His very own chosen and unique people.

Now, for the specific purposes, that He disciplines His own, I’ve already touched on, but here is the central core of what His purpose is. He does it for our own good and greatest benefit, as well as, the benefit of others and so that, we will not only be completely fit, in spirit, soul and body, but also that we will be fit for The Kingdom, flourish in The Kingdom and enabled to effectively do the work of The Kingdom.

The LORD will be ever faithful and diligent to make sure that we will become, achieve and do, all that we were intentionally designed and created to do.

This, because we are His greatest masterpiece and workmanship, in the whole of His creation.

Finally, our response to The LORD’s discipline being administered to us in our daily lives, should be one of gratitude, thankfulness, great appreciation, and also, accept and realize that it is such a huge honor to be so fortunate to be loved and cherished in this manner and fashion, by our creator—The LORD GOD Almighty.

So, love and embrace The LORD’s discipline in your life. You can’t go wrong by doing it; and it really is in your best interest and for your greatest good! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 10/06- “Papa God’s Love—Christ’s Patient Perseverance—Our Understanding Expressive Hearts!” (2 Thessalonians 3:5)

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: 10/06- “Papa God’s Love—Christ’s Patient Perseverance—Our Understanding Expressive Hearts!”
(2 Thessalonians 3:5)

Premise Question: What is it that really matters, in the overall grand scheme of things, when all is said and done, and each one of us get to the very end of our time and individual existence here on earth, what is the most significant thing we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, ought to have done, in order to fulfill Papa God’s divine will and purpose for our lives?

“May the Lord lead your hearts into a full understanding and expression of the love of God and the patient endurance that comes from Christ.” (‭‭2 Thessalonians‬ ‭3:5‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

May The LORD Jesus Christ be permitted, (because you’ve given Him authorization to do so, through the surrendering of your will to His divine will, for your life) to unequivocally direct and regulate the condition of your hearts; therefore, the consequential effect will be you being led into the fullness of Papa God’s unconditional, unfailing, as well as, undying, profoundly tender and affectionate love, to not only experience and understand it fully on a personal basis and level, but to then have the ability and desire to express His love towards all of humankind. Therefore, as a direct result of your hearts being lead and directed by The LORD Jesus Christ, this will empower and enable you to be persistently steady and patiently enduring, even unto the very end, not ever giving up, but relentlessly pursuing and accomplishing Papa God’s divine will and purpose for your life. (2 Thessalonians 3:5 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We must first grant The LORD permission—authorization, to lead us into a full understanding of His love, and then, a sincere willingness to express His love towards others, by guiding and directing our thoughts and actions, our very hearts, in the way that will be pleasing and honoring to Him, and in a manner that will have us reaching out to others; extending ourselves towards them with His love, with His understanding and compassion, through our personally daily lived out commitment and strong faith in Him.

We should always be expressing our faith in love towards everyone!

We need to always humbly be asking Him to be in charge, by continuing to daily take control of our hearts and lives.

We must be willing to lay our lives down, in the same way Christ laid His life down for us, for the proliferation and spreading of The Gospel, for each other, and for those that are lost; the ones that we are diligently loving and sharing The Good News with, while waiting patiently and enduring all things, all for the sake of Christ and the mission of rescuing and offering salvation to those that are perishing.

Finally, Papa God’s love, we must have and experience personally!

Christ’s patient perseverance, we need to ask for and grow into!

Our understanding and expressive hearts will only truly be effective when we completely yield them to be transformed by the power and personal presence of Papa God’s Holy Spirit—The Spirit of Christ; which needs to live and dwell, by faith and confession, within the within, of the innermost part of our beings—our hearts.

So, please remember this: the only thing that really does matter, and truly counts for something, in this life, is our faith in Christ being expressed towards others, through His love! 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- 09/26- “Pure Love Is—Pure Love Is Not!” (1 Corinthians 13:4-5)

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: 09/26- “Pure Love Is—Pure Love Is Not!”
(1 Corinthians 13:4-5)

Premise Question: Does authentic pure love really exist, or is it just some high ideal and lofty concept, an unrealistic hope, that is far removed from anyone ever being able to actually experience it in a real and meaningful way?

“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged.” ‭‭(1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:4-5‬ ‭NLT‬)

There is nothing in this world that is more patient, having the greatest capacity for being long-suffering, persistent, persevering, enduring hardship, pain, forbearing and forgiving, at all times, than Papa God’s pure love. There is not another love that is more propitious, obliging, considerate, indulgent, showing benevolent kindness at every turn to everyone on all occasions and in every situation and circumstance. Pure love never allows feelings of discontent, resentfulness or covetousness to turn into jealous envy; influencing love’s thoughts and behavior towards others. Pure love refuses to ever exaggerate, by boasting about itself in a braggadocios manner, nor will it ever exhibit a haughty spirit of vain pride. Pure love does not treat others with disdain or contempt, by shamefully and disgracefully dishonoring them in an inappropriate or rude way. Pure love does not pursue self-gratification, nor does it selfishly only look after its own interests to the exclusion of all others. Pure love is not cantankerous or irritable, having a “short fuse” that quickly explodes into fits of malicious anger and rage. And furthermore, pure love never, ever, without any exception, equivocation, mitigating circumstances or justification, shall ever keep track, for any reason, of a record of wrongs done. (1 Corinthians 13:4-5 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Authentic pure love really does exist! Pure authentic love is real! Pure love can and should be seen, exhibited and put on display, for all to see, everyday of our lives.

Pure love can truly be experienced personally, as a couple, a family, a group of friends, a crowd, a community, a people group and even amongst all people groups, reaching and extending throughout the entire world.

Pure love is not just some high ideal or lofty concept that we put high upon a pedestal, far beyond anyone being able to reach or attain!

Pure love is truly what we should all be aiming for and aspiring to attain personally, and to fully experience, on all levels, in every area of our life; and furthermore, as much as it is up to us, with all people everywhere.

When authentic pure love is seen, experienced and fully expressed, there’s not anything that is impossible; for all things are absolutely possible whenever and wherever pure love is present!

This particular Scripture is a wonderful and great way to evaluate and test whether or not Papa God’s authentic pure love is operating in our own lives, the lives around us and in those that are in the rest of the world.

Take the authentic pure love checkup today, right now, for it’s always going to initially begin with each of us, on an individual and personal basis, of truly experiencing Papa God’s authentic pure love. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/21- “The LORD GOD Almighty—Your Papa God, Sings Songs Of Joy Over You!” (Zephaniah 3:17)

Posted on Updated on

1 DAY LATE POST:

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: 09/21- “The LORD GOD Almighty—Your Papa God, Sings Songs Of Joy Over You!” (Zephaniah 3:17)

Premise Question: The conspicuously obvious question to ask is: Why would and does Papa God take great delight in you with extravagant expressions of mirth and gladness, and sing songs of exultation and joy over you?

“For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” (‭‭Zephaniah‬ ‭3:17‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

The LORD GOD Almighty—your Papa God, is mighty in battle; for there is none that can stand against Him. He has no peers, as a Mighty Warrior, for He is the overwhelming Victor in every skirmish, fight or combat encounter. He is ever present, close by your side, at all times, on every occasion, in support of you; no matter the situation or circumstance, every moment of every hour of each and every day of your life’s sojourn. He is always there to bring release, to save and rescue, and then ultimately to take great delight in redeeming you, as His very own. It is because of His great unfailing love for you, He will never again mention or bring to His remembrance, by reminding you of your past and the times or occasions where you faltered, failed and flopped. On the contrary, He will celebrate and rejoice, with jubilant festive songs of exultation, by singing Heavenly Melodies of joy and elation over you. (Zephaniah 3:17 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Papa God’s unfailing and absolutely immeasurable love that He has for us, His unique, made in His own image creation, is truly way beyond our perception, comprehension or understanding. But, we can accept the truth of His infallible Word, that He has chosen to live and reside amongst us, as our Mighty Warrior, Comforting Counselor and Redeeming Savior!

We can also accept that He is a lavishing loving and delightfully doting Papa God, who takes an extremely high degree of pleasure and enjoyment in singing songs of exultation and joy over us; making us glad, filling us with cheer and joy, calming all of our tortuous thoughts and worrisome fears, relieving us of apprehension and angst, dread and distress and causing us to fully experience a serene rest and tranquil peace.

Why would and does He do this? Because of His great love for His very own chosen children, of which we, The Company of The Redeemed, are most assuredly are! Blessings…
