SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/01- “Let The Whole World Know!”
(1 Chronicles 16:8)

Premise Question: What responsibility and obligation has not changed, but remains the same, from The Old Testament all the way through The New Testament and beyond, for the beloved chosen people of Papa God?

Give thanks to the LORD and proclaim his greatness. Let the whole world know what he has done. (‭1 Chronicles‬ ‭16‬:‭8‬ NLT)

Give voluntarily, holding nothing back, with your whole heart, all honor and thanksgiving, with great expressions of heartfelt gratitude, extolling the highest praise that can be given, to The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty—The Maker of Heaven and earth. Joyfully announce and boldly declare His Great and Magnificent Name to everyone everywhere; broadcasting a proclamation that establishes a true and trustworthy testimonial and record of a strong witness, that will not be rejected or refuted, and is gladly received in the very midst of every people group upon the face of the earth. So that, it will bring great notoriety, bringing to light what The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty has accomplished for all of humankind anywhere and everywhere they may be existing, in His splendid and glorious creation. (1 Chronicles 16:8 PDCP)

Bottom Line: We have the obligation of giving thanks to The LORD for His loving, merciful and gracious gift of salvation, which includes experiencing the fullness of His complete joy and strength, as well as, His great comfort and perfect peace, and also provides us with an escape from death, destruction and eternal punishment; setting us free, by delivering us out of darkness and into His glorious light, bestowing and conferring upon us eternal life, to forever live in His presence.

Our responsibility that we’ve been commissioned to fulfill, as our unique mission, is to proclaim and declare, by announcing and shouting it from the rooftops, with boldness and courage, in the market square and literally to everyone everywhere, the Good News of His greatness and the goodness of His unfailing love, His great mercy and wonderfully sufficient grace.

We, the people of Papa God, are strongly encouraged and admonished to not hide the light that is within us, but to allow it to shine bright for all to see. For if we do not fulfill our responsibility of letting our light shine forth and do not shout and proclaim, with boldness, the greatness of The LORD to everyone everywhere, then the very rocks will cry out in our place!

Time to let the whole world know! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 06/03- “A Potent And Persuasive Admonition!” (Romans 12:3)

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: 06/03- “A Potent And Persuasive Admonition!” (Romans 12:3)

Premise Question: Why is it so very important to not think of yourself as being superior to others, and that you be real, authentic and honest in your own appraisal of yourself?

Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us. (‭Romans‬ ‭12‬:‭3‬ NLT)

Because of The LORD’S unmerited favor and jurisdiction, that He personally gave to me, in a spectacular and serendipitous manner, I am compelled to share this instructive and extremely vital exhortation and admonition with you: do not ever consider yourself above or better than someone else, by thinking that you are in some way superior to them in virtue, or significantly more valuable and important than they are. But, rather, exhibit wisdom, humility, propriety, self-control and restraint, by refusing to think of yourself in that way; always choosing to be in alignment and complete agreement with, while conforming to, the very measure of faith that Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty has given to each one of us. (Romans 12:3 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Recognizing, accepting and fully complying with the authority and jurisdiction of the Apostle Paul’s potent and persuasive exhortation and vital admonition to us, will produce many blessings and benefits, along with wonderfully efficacious results in our lives and ministry and is ultimately quite pleasing to Papa God.

Therefore, it is of the greatest importance that we always be genuinely authentic in our faith, in our approach and in our perception of others; refusing to ever believe that we are superior to them.

We should be ethically honorable and completely straightforward, when it comes to how we look at, adjudicate and perceive ourselves; always making sure that we are open and honest, when accessing and appraising ourselves, by calculating and gauging our lives, by how it measures up to and comes into alignment with, the faith that each of us has been personally given by Papa God.

Remember, all of us have been redeemed because of Papa God’s unfailing love, by and through His gracious favor and great and undeserved mercy!

So, let us take this warning to heart and practice, and never be subject to thinking too highly of ourselves, or that we are more deserving and virtuous than that of others. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 06/02- “Our Prime Directive!” (John 13:34-35)

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: 06/02- “Our Prime Directive!” (John 13:34-35)

Premise Question: What is the undeniable, the absolute verifiable proof, that truly shows the world, all of humankind, that we, The Company of The Redeemed, are the true authentic followers of The LORD Jesus Christ?

So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” (‭John‬ ‭13‬:‭34-35‬ NLT)

The prime directive that I’m giving you to implement immediately, as a controlling influence, in your attitude and behavior towards each other, is fresh and brand new. This new command, that you exhibit openly an undying and unfailing love towards each other, should be the overarching authority and influence in your life. In the same manner that I have openly exhibited My undying and unfailing love for each of you, so too, must you openly exhibit this same love towards each other. As a direct result, of you following this new specific directive, everyone, in all of humankind, will clearly see and comprehend, without a scintilla of doubt, for it shall forever establish, that you are My true authentic followers, when you freely choose to openly exhibit an undying and unfailing love towards each other. (John 13:34-35 PDCP)

Bottom Line: It is not our eloquence of speech and soaring rhetoric, nor is it our beautiful edifices, filled with traditional, contemporary, alternative, highbrow, lowbrow or even unibrow forms of worship, that proves we are true authentic followers of Jesus Christ!

It’s not our missions and outreach programs to clothe and feed the poor, although it should be our common practice to do so; nor is it even our higher institutions of learning, training and doctrinal purity, in preparation for ministry and mission, that is the proof!

The prime directive/command, which trumps everything else we may say or do, in regards to what our attitude should be and how we are to approach, treat, honor and comport ourselves towards one another and the world; and that we, The Company of The Redeemed, have been given to completely satisfy and fulfill, is the one that has been clearly put on display, described, delineated and defined, for all to see, by the ultimate example of true authentic love, our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ!

It’s time for all of us to get on board His true authentic love train, in order to be trained by His true authentic love, the love He has shown for us, and which, has been put on display for all the world to see!

We then, must ourselves prove that we have this true authentic love, which is The LORD’S love, that He’s shown towards us, and, that now we should put on display towards one another; showing all of humankind that we are His true authentic followers, by the exhibition of this very same love!

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 05/10- “Let Peace Rule!” (Colossians 3:15)

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: 05/10- “Let Peace Rule!” (Colossians 3:15)

Premise Question: As individual members of one whole body, the august body of Jesus Christ, known as, The Company of The Redeemed, how do we let the peace and harmony of Christ rule in our hearts and everyday lives?

And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful. (‭Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭15‬ NLT)

Allow mutual harmony to govern your hearts—permitting Christ’s peace to strike an accord of agreement that controls your conduct towards one another; since it has now and forevermore been established, through Christ, that we all have been brought together to become individual parts of one whole body, with a divine command to fulfill our holy vocation and calling of being in a perpetual state of tranquillity with each other. And, in that serene peace, we are to cultivate an atmosphere of thankfulness—practicing expressions of gratitude, not just with words, but with our behaviors, attitudes and actions as well! (Colossians 3:15 PDCP)

Bottom Line: First and foremost: we must be willing to diligently walk in love and release, by always extending forgiveness towards others.

We should be extremely patient with each other, in an enduring perseverance, which has been described as passion with patience.

We should be forbearing, long-suffering and always considerate and merciful towards others.

We should always prefer each other before and above ourselves.

We should always be kind and show generosity towards others.

And, we should never stop giving thanks, being thankful and expressing our sincere gratitude towards Papa God and others.

When we actively engage in these things, peace, harmony and love will rule our hearts and lives, and others will readily see and then, want to quickly engage, and also become members of The Company of The Redeemed; which is, The Body of Christ.

As a direct result, then, all of our hearts will be set free to rejoice and praise together, in our worship, honor and glorifying of The One True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty—Jesus Christ, our LORD and The Savior of all of humankind! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 05/01- “It All Boils Down To This ‘One’ Thing!” (Galatians 5:14)

Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 05/01- “It All Boils Down To This ‘One’ Thing!” (Galatians 5:14)

Premise Question: Given the unambiguous edict and direct command given to us, by The LORD, why do some of us, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, have such a difficult time embracing and putting this one specific command into practice, or do we?

For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” (‭Galatians‬ ‭5‬:‭14‬ NLT)

So, in order to completely satisfy the entirety of Papa God’s divine law, that was given to Moses, we must allow ourselves to be arrested and captured by this one supreme and direct command, ordered by Papa God Himself; which is, to love our neighbor, having a strong affinity and affection towards them, not isolating, insulating or alienating ourselves from our fellow humankind, but pursuing, developing and having personal connections and individual ties with them, by extending the same love, grace, mercy, compassion, care and real concern, that we want and do extend to ourselves! (Galatians 5:14 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Are there some of us, members of The Company of The Redeemed, that are, in practice, actually loving our fellow humankind, our neighbors, as much and in the same way and manner as we love ourselves? Now, if so, this could pose or present a real problem or issue on a number of different levels, if in fact, we don’t love and respect ourselves very much! So, we should love, respect, honor and treat our fellow humankind, our neighbors, in the same way and manner that Papa God has shown His love, grace, mercy, compassion, care and real concern for all of humankind, and specifically for all those who’ve taken advantage of His overture and free gift of freedom, through The Redeemer, Savior and LORD, Jesus Christ!

Wouldn’t it be great if we were really good at doing this ‘one’ thing? What would that look like? What kind of impact would it have and what would it change or cause to be different and transformed? What would really happen to the world around us, if we were able pull it off, by actually making it our ambition, our focus, goal and aim to, with diligence, devotion and earnest effort, intent, inclination and daily practice, do this ‘one’ thing, by giving it our all?

We’ve all been given a sacred trust and responsibility. For no one is exempt, because of some mitigating circumstance, situation or event, to fulfill our obligation and duty, to love and be good neighbors to our fellow humankind, in the same way and manner that Papa God has loved and is our good neighbor.

Let’s do for others, what He has done for all of humankind, by reaching across time and space and every barrier, including sin, to love and redeem everyone!

GRAB-Grace Reaches Across Barriers! Thank The LORD that He did GRAB us! Now let’s GRAB others, in love, for Him and His glory! Because it all boils down to this ‘one’ thing! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 01/02- “Nothing Else Matters, If I’m Bereft Of True Authentic Love!” (1 Corinthians 13:2)

Posted on Updated 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: 01/02-“Nothing Else Matters, If I’m Bereft Of True Authentic Love!” (1 Corinthians 13:2)

Premise Question: Is there anything else, in this world, more important than being able to fully experience, first, by receiving and possessing, then, by the giving and expressing of, Papa God’s true, authentic love?

“If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing.” (‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:2‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Let’s assume, that I have the unique ability of being able to make inspired declarations, with absolute accuracy and also, that I’m able to apprehend the comprehension of quite puzzling and absurdly perplexing enigmas, as well as, being fully aware and enlightened, with perfect insight and perception. And, furthermore, let’s also say, that I am in possession of a great and overcoming faith, powerful enough to remove and uproot the mountains from their very foundations, hurling them into the sea; but, all of this tremendous display of extraordinarily and unearthly glorious ability is completely meaningless and amounts to and counts for nothing, for if I do not possess and express Papa God’s true, authentic love, I am a useless nobody. (1 Corinthians 13:2 PDCP)

Bottom Line: In answer to the question of whether there be anything more important, in his life, than possessing and expressing Papa God’s true, authentic love, no there isn’t; for it matters not how talented we may be, or how many unique and splendid abilities we can display, in a spectacular fashion and manner; all of it is for naught, and doesn’t count for or amount to anything, if we haven’t first, personally experienced, by receiving, then, personally given, by expressing Papa God’s true, authentic love, towards others. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 11/07/15- “This Good News Is To Be Shared With Everyone Everywhere!” (1 Timothy 2:5-6)

Posted on

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 11/07/15- “This Good News Is To Be Shared With Everyone Everywhere!” (1 Timothy 2:5-6)

Premise Question: As members of The Company of The Redeemed, what should be our prima facie, unchangeable charge and mission in life, and who, in this world, should garner the greatest attention and our utmost focus?

“For, There is one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time.”
‭‭(1 Timothy‬ ‭2:5-6‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

For there is only one true Papa God, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty. He is the maker of Heaven and earth and everything therein. There is no other God! There is only one Mediator who can intervene on behalf of all of humankind, by making peace, restoring and reconciling them back together in right relationship with The Creator Papa God—The Eternal Word, Jesus Christ, who willingly became flesh, sent by Papa God, His Heavenly Father, to dwell amongst us as a man, for the express purpose of fulfilling Papa God’s perfectly designed, divinely inspired plan, at His appointed perfect time, when He offered up His only begotten Son, upon the cross, as a ransom paid in full, for the redemption of the whole of humankind; meaning all people everywhere in the world. Now, here is The Good News, which was revealed, witnessed and attested as the truth. Papa God, The Creator of humankind, truly desires that all of humankind, His creation, would be saved. (1Timothy 2:5-6 PDCP)

Bottom Line: Our prima facie charge and mission in life, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, is to share the message of great joy and eternal hope; a wonderful and marvelous message of perfect peace and Good News, for all of humankind and the whole earth. The Good News message is timeless, for it is for all time and for everyone, but was delivered to the whole world, by Papa God, just at the right and appointed time; for all those who are orphaned and lost, without hope, helpless or hurting, oppressed or ostracized, harassed or hapless, persecuted or downtrodden; never excluding, ignoring nor overlooking anyone, and leaving no one in a lurch or behind, but reconciling, restoring and renewing, by redeeming and setting free anyone and everyone who accepts The Good News message of hope, by calling on The Name of The LORD Jesus Christ to be saved!

Here is the timeless message of hope: There is only one, true and living, Papa God, who is The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, The Creator of Heaven and earth and everything therein. There is only one Mediator and LORD, who has the qualifications, ability and authority to intervene on behalf of humankind, acting as a Paraclete between Papa God and humankind—Jesus Christ. There is only one mission given to us by Papa God, delivered to us through His Only Son Jesus Christ: that is, to seek out those who are lost, in order to share the life giving message of Good News and hope with them, so that, they may have the opportunity to call out upon The Name of The LORD and be delivered, set free and eternally saved! Remember, “if you’re not ministering to the world, then who in the world are you ministering to!” (quote from Tim Sipes) And, “if you’re not focussed on the lost, then you’ve simply lost your focus!” (quote from yours truly) The Good News is to be shared with everyone everywhere! Papa God is depending on us to do it! Blessings…
