SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/02- “We Are Papa God’s Masterpiece—Saved By Grace—Created To Do Good Works!” (Ephesians 2:8-10)
Premise Question: How did you become a legitimate member of The Company of The Redeemed, who are you, as a member of the Company of The Redeemed, and what are you to be doing, as a member of The Company of The Redeemed?
“God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” (Ephesians 2:8-10 NLT)
For it is only because of Papa God’s unmerited favor, kindness and great love shown towards you, that you’ve been rescued and redeemed from certain death, becoming an accepted and recognized member, in right standing, in The Company of The Redeemed; and this, through your personal confession of faith and belief in His Son, Jesus Christ, when you placed your complete trust and reliance on Him. And even then, it’s not based on anything that’s been generated by your good behavior, actions or deeds, for there’s not any sort of effort, work accomplishment or achievement, that you can do or attempt to do, that will ever suffice; as it is indeed, solely based entirely upon His love for you and His free merciful gift of salvation, provided by and through the mighty works of Papa God Himself and His Son. He’s done it in this way, so that there wouldn’t ever be any personal aggrandizement to be claimed by anyone; for there’s no boasting allowed, except in The LORD and what He has done. For we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, are the unique and perfectly designed masterpiece, created by the hands of the Master Himself, our Papa God Almighty in Heaven, brought forth out of darkness and renewed by His Son—Jesus Christ, for the purpose of doing His divine works of righteousness; that Papa God had in His mind, already prepared in waiting, for each of us to do, long before we were even members of The Company of The Redeemed. (Ephesians 2:8-10 PDCP)
Bottom Line: You are saved by grace, through your faith, but not on your own, for it is a gift that comes only from Papa God—The Heavenly Father; which can’t be earned or bought, but should be sought, so that you’ll be caught, to then be taught, in order, to do and accomplish, with The LORD’s help, the divine work, will and purpose, that’s been prepared and is ready in waiting, for you to begin to do. So, without delay, let’s get busy, and begin, with great diligence and devotion get to work! Blessings… http://www.theshipministry.com papadoncox.wordpress.com #savedbygracethroughfaithtodogoodworks
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/24- “Recognizing Papa God’s Incredible Workmanship!” (Psalms 139:13-14)
Premise Question: Do we, all of humankind, truly realize how we were divinely designed and came to be, and do we honor, recognize, acknowledge and accept, with appropriate laudation, that we are the most incredibly precise and intricately complex, harmoniously perfect workmanship (handiwork) of a wonderful loving, most merciful and gracious Papa God, who is The One and Only True Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty—The Creator of the heavens and the earth, and everything therein?
“You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.” (Psalms 139:13-14 NLT)
From Your unmatched creative imagination, You, The Sovereign LORD GOD Almighty, who is the creator of the heavens and the earth and everything therein, meticulously designed me, by weaving together the most delicate parts of my innermost being inside my mother’s womb. I honor and give You, Almighty Papa God, my highest praise, because You alone, O LORD, are worthy to be venerated, honored and worshiped above everyone and everything else. Therefore, I am full of reverential awe, being absolutely astonished, at just how amazingly intricate, and marvelously wonderful, that I am put and held together, with precise precision and in harmonious perfection. Your wonderful workmanship, O LORD, is spectacularly glorious and beyond measure or compare! I am fully aware, in every part of my incredible being, of the magnificence of who You are and what You have done! (Psalms 139:13-14 PDCP)
Bottom Line: In order to fully realize, with a complete understanding and comprehension, that we are fearfully and wonderfully made, we must first consider and then fully accept, the truth contained within Papa God’s Holy Writ—The Scriptures.
Which, by the way, not only convey and reveal to us that He has designed and made each and every delicate and critical part of our bodies, but also, has then, with great care and precision, assembled and put all the different and diverse parts together to function properly; by each part doing what it was designed to do, which is to work in perfect harmony with every other part of our incredibly made bodies.
It is therefore, of the utmost importance that we recognize Papa God for what He has done, by acknowledging Him and lauding Him with the highest of praise, honor and worship; ascribing all the glory and honor that is due Him and Him alone!
Finally, it would be wise, good and extremely prudent to remember, that Papa God also reminds us, in His Word, that He knew us even before we were formed in our mothers womb! He already had a purpose, plan and work for us to do! And, that He sees every moment of our life from the end all the way back to before the beginning!
Let everyone that has breath, recognize and praise The LORD for what He has done! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/01- “Live At The Corner Of Peace And Holiness!” (Hebrews 12:14)
Premise Question: What is your “www” (walk, work, worship) address; where are you living, how are you walking, what are you working on, and, who are you worshiping?
“Work at living in peace with everyone, and work at living a holy life, for those who are not holy will not see the Lord.” (Hebrews 12:14 NLT)
See to it that you always strive to thrive, in establishing a lifestyle that produces peace and tranquility, without duress, between you and everyone; whether it be a friend, neighbor or even a foe, and earnestly determine to live an honorable, upright holy life, declared righteous by The LORD GOD Almighty. Therefore, pursue, with a dogged determination, your divine purpose of living a life of holiness, because without it, there’s no way around it, and no one will be able to circumvent it by taking a circuitous route, in order to be able to see and reach The LORD GOD Almighty, as there is no other way! (Hebrews 12:14 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Nowadays, everyone that has something to say, show or sell, can get and utilize a “www” (World Wide Web) address to effectively reach, teach, preach or even present themselves as a desirable peach; in order to accomplish their goal, aim, ambition or mission in life.
For each of us though, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, there is also a “www” (our walk, our work, our worship) address that we should all be well aware of, and with diligence, devotion and sincere earnestness, be living our daily lives, at that address, and in such a way and fashion that we make it our goal, aim, ambition and mission in life, to always be pleasing to Papa God, in every area of our lives; how we are walking, what we are working on and who we are worshiping, so that, one day, when we see Him face to face, we shall hear His voice say to us: “Well done, my good and faithful servant, now enter into all that I’ve prepared for you, and that, for all of eternity!”
So, our walk should be one that is upright and pleasing to Papa God. Our work should be a work that brings glory and honor to His Name. We will accomplish this if we’ll make every effort to work at being at peace, as much as it is up to us, with everyone, and to also work diligently at living a pure and holy life, with the help of The LORD’S Spirit living inside us. Otherwise, we won’t ever see Papa God or hear His wonderful compliment and invitation.
And finally, we should abandon ourselves in worship to The Most High, holding nothing back in reserve, but giving Him all the honor, glory and praise that is due only Him!
Where do you live, what’s your address? Hopefully, it’s at the corner of Peace and Holiness Boulevard! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 05/09- “Papa God’s Masterpiece!” (Ephesians 2:10)
Premise Question: Who of us has never struggled or been somewhat in a quandary or perhaps even have become frustrated, with the questions of; “does my individual life have significant meaning and for what specific purpose am I here and alive at this particular moment in time?”
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. (Ephesians 2:10 NLT)
The art and skill it took to make us what we are, a unique, one of a kind creation, is beyond our comprehension, for we are wonderfully shaped, by the work of Papa God’s hands, brought into being out of His own imaginative design, made new in Christ, in order to perform honorable, virtuous, worthy of excellence, righteous good works; which by the way, was already in Papa God’s mind and divinely designed, prepared plan for us, as believers, well in advance and even before we were saved or yet even born into this world, so as, to carry out and do, by bringing to fruition, His ultimate purpose and perfect plan of reconciliation for all of humankind! (Ephesians 2:10 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Papa God knew us before we were ever formed in our mother’s womb, and therefore, has created each one of us to live purposeful, and meaningful lives, filled with doing honorable, virtuous, worthy of excellence, righteous good works, that will fulfill His divine purpose and will for our lives, and in the process, bring glory and honor to His Name.
Our lives must have purpose and meaning, in order to truly enjoy and experience the fullness of all this life has to offer. And, if your still here, that means you’ve still got something to do and be, so, as long as you’re still here, no matter your age or circumstances, there’s still time to fulfill your life’s calling and purpose; and that, with significant and incredibly impactive meaning, for this life and the life to come!
We can only accomplish this, with the help of The LORD, the guidance of The Holy Spirit, and of course, by doing the will of Papa God. Then, when we do this, it will create and leave a legacy for all those who come after us, to follow and emulate.
The greatest thing that we will ever accomplish in this life is to do the will of Papa God, by allowing Him to fulfill His divine purpose in and for our lives.
Choose to be Papa God’s blessing of refreshing, by cherishing and nourishing others, then you shall always experience the flourishing of The LORD!
Allow the Plan of The LORD to be accomplished in your life, so that, at the end of your life, you will hear Papa God say to you: “Well done my greatly beloved child and most faithful servant, enter now into all that I’ve prepared and have waiting for you!”
And remember, greatly beloved child and faithful servant of Papa God, you are His Masterpiece! Blessings…

Premise Question: What is Papa God’s perfectly designed plan and divine purpose and will for all of humankind?
“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” (Ephesians 2:10 NLT)
The art and skill it took to make us what we are, a unique, one of a kind creation, is beyond our comprehension, for we are wonderfully shaped, by the work of Papa God’s hands, brought into being out of His own imaginative design, made new in Christ, in order to perform honorable, virtuous, worthy of excellence, righteous good works; which by the way, was already in Papa God’s prepared plan for us, as believers, well in advance and even before we were saved or perhaps yet even born into this world, so as, to carry out and do, by bringing to fruition, His ultimate divine purpose and plan of reconciliation for all of humankind! (Ephesians 2:10 PDCP)
Bottom Line: To ultimately bring all of humankind, whosoever will, back into right standing and intimate fellowship, in an honorable and beautiful relationship, with Him, Papa God and His Son Jesus Christ, The Creator of Heaven and earth, humankind and everything therein, and to also do His good work and will, by fulfilling His divinely designed, perfect will, holy purpose and ultimate plan!
