SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/06- “What He Said He Would Do, He Did! What He Did, Was Done For All!” (Matthew 28:5-6)
Premise Question: What are we, now, The Company of The Redeemed, supposed to be doing today, with the angelic message that was personally spoken and delivered to the two women, Mary and Mary, who had come to stand vigil, but instead, found the empty tomb?
Then the angel spoke to the women. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying. (Matthew 28:5-6 NLT)
The angel, sitting atop the stone that he had just rolled rolled away from the entrance of the tomb, spoke to the two women, Mary and Mary, who had come to stand vigil, at the tomb of Jesus, “be assured and at peace, for there’s not any reason for you to be frightened or afraid, as I am aware of why you are here and who you are seeking—Jesus, the one who was nailed to the cross, but behold, He is no longer here! He is risen from the dead, just as He said! For He is victorious, as He has overcome death, hell and the grave, in the exact manner and way He declared it would come to pass! Come now and see for yourselves, with your own eyes, the place where they laid His body. He is no longer here!”(Matthew 25:5-6 PDCP)
Bottom Line: All of humankind, whether they are fully aware of it or not, are still today, looking for “The One” who can bring freedom from fear, the assurance of peace, the provision of comfort and real hope, into their everyday lives! We, The Company of The Redeemed, have been urgently tasked, as well as empowered, by The Holy Spirit, to quickly share this life giving and life sustaining message of Hope, The Blessed Hope, Jesus Christ, personally, with everyone, everywhere! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/08/15- “Make Sure You Are Ready And Equipped!” (1 Peter 3:14b-15)
Premise Question: Why is it so vitally important, with tremendous significance attached to it, that we, each and every member of The Company of The Redeemed, live our lives before others, without worry or fear, and that we are always, at the ready, equipped and fully prepared, to give a quick and cogent response to anyone who may ask us why we are so joyful and why we have such a hopeful outlook on life, now and even into the distant future?
“So don’t worry or be afraid of their threats. Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it.” (1 Peter 3:14b-15 NLT)
Do not allow the threats being directed towards you, by your enemy, to foment worry and fear to the point of being frightened into a state of paralysis of thought and inactivity. Rather though, continue to trust The LORD for your safety, while acknowledging, with a Holy reverent worship, at the very core and the inmost part of your being, Jesus Christ, as LORD and Savior. On every occasion and circumstance, without exception, make sure you are ready, being properly prepared and thoroughly equipped, to deliver, in a cogent manner, a quick and simple, appropriate response and answer, to anyone, anywhere, anytime, all the time, to absolutely everyone, who may request of you a basis and justification for why you are so obviously filled with joy and such an expectant hope, for not only the here and now, but into the future, as well. Be very careful though, showing extreme consideration, remembering to be polite, gentle and kind, always showing the greatest amount of esteem, honor and respect towards them, while engaging and interacting with them. (1 Peter 3:14b-15 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The LORD has given us clear and concise instructions, commands, exhortations and encouragements, in His Word, to not be fearful, fretful, afraid, troubled, moved by threats, no matter the threat level, but to always stand firm, not wavering, upon our faith and trust that we’ve placed and fully surrendered to The LORD. And, that we are to not ever allow anything to dissuade, dismay or discourage us from doing the work of spreading the Good News, among and with those that we’re given the divine opportunity to do so; being ever ready, prepared and rehearsed, fully equipped, to share our own personal story, in a simple, quick, clear and concise, cogent way. We, as believers, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, should make it our priority to be able to answer cogently and explain quickly and simply, to anyone who may ask us why we are the way we are; which should absolutely be, full of joy, hope, compassion, generosity, patience, encouragement and refreshing to be around! Others should see us openly, unashamedly and unabashedly worshiping The LORD in every area and part of our lives; honoring Him above everything and all others. We should each, therefore, develop and hone our own convincing and believable personal story, (no embellishment needed or necessary, just the wonderful truth) of how we came to know and accept The LORD Jesus Christ into our lives; sharing who we were before we knew Him, explaining how, when and why we accepted Him as LORD and Savior and then, telling them, with enthusiasm, what has happened and transpired in our lives since we first believed and then, as a direct result, began to grow and flourish, maturing in our relationship with The LORD. Make sure you are ready, prepared and equipped, with the Good News and your own personal story, to give everyone, the reason why you are so hopeful and full of joy! Blessings…
