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…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/09/15-“Wise Speech!” (Colossians 4:5-6)
Premise Question: Why is it so extremely important for members of The Company of The Redeemed to be ardently circumspect in their speech, their personal behavior and deportment towards those who are still unaffiliated; and why should their speech be wonderfully fascinating, filled with intriguing words and concepts that are interesting and pleasantly refreshing to those who are still unacquainted; whenever an opportunity arises to be engaging, with a satisfying and appropriate response for them?
Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone. (Colossians 4:5-6 NLT)
Be prudent, with proper discernment, in regards to the manner of your deportment towards those who presently are not yet a part of The Company of The Redeemed, the family of Papa God; be compelled, with great temerity, taking full advantage on every occasion of each favorable condition presented to you. Let your interactions with others, through the words that are spoken and exchanged, without exception, be abundantly flavored with expressions that preserve and refresh them and are filled with favor, goodwill and kindness; this, so you will properly perceive, with complete comprehension and understanding, coming into the full realization of how to respond correctly, with an appropriate reply, to every person you may engage. (Colossians 4:5,6 PDCP)
Bottom Line: It is of the greatest import, that in our approach towards others, the unaffiliated and unacquainted, that we ourselves always remain approachable! It’s never a good approach or idea, nor is it ever very effective, to passionately prove your point and that you are most definitely right, in order to prove that others are definitely wrong! We all were, at one time, definitely lost and wrong; for it is only because of Papa God’s great love, mercy and gracious favor shown toward us, that we were able to approach Him and be made right! And may we not ever forget, that it was when we were at our worst, that Papa God gave His best, His Son Jesus, up for us! We will not ever reach those that we are commissioned to reach and love, if before we even have an opportunity to engage them, we’ve already cut them up, cut them down and literally cut them off! So, with humility and grace, the gracious favor, mercy and love of The LORD, we should choose to be civil, kind, long suffering, exhibiting a patient endurance, care and great concern for those who are presently unaffiliated, who’ve not yet been captivated by the Good News of The Savior; which is that of being set free, released from darkness and brought into the glorious light and enlightenment of a loving, merciful, full of grace and forgiveness, Almighty Sovereign Papa God. If it be our true intention to fulfill Papa God’s divine purpose and will for our lives, then we must make our true intentions clear, by obeying and fulfilling The Great Commission and His greatest command, which simply is: Love Him, love others and then, go and tell everyone everywhere about His love for all of humankind! Here’s an old saying that speaks volumes: “Claim you are right and you will start a fight!” I’ve shared this acrostic before, but it’s apropos to do it again here. SODA-POP- Seek-Out-Divine-Appointments-Pray-Obey-Persevere! This is something we should be doing on a daily basis! Blessings…
