SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/01/15- “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…

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.
(1 Chronicles 16:34 NLT)
Show and express to The LORD your full gratitude, by offering up to Him, from a thankful heart, true spiritual praise and worship, honoring Him with reverential awe, for He is beneficently virtuous and righteous!

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 05/16/15- “No Matter What You Say Or Do!” (Colossians 3:17)
Premise Question: Is there ever a time or an occasion, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, where we take some time off, a vacation break, personal days or sick days, from being a representative of The LORD and offering thanks to Papa God?
And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father. (Colossians 3:17 NLT)
And whatever, anything or everything, no matter whatsoever and without any specification you do, whether it be in the words you offer or in the deeds you perform, regardless the circumstances or situation, always do it as if you were doing it unto The Lord, in His Name, not yours, never neglecting to freely give thanks to Papa God, The Father, with a heart full of appreciation, gratitude and thanksgiving, offering it first and foremost to Him, through Jesus our LORD! (Colossians 3:17 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Whatever, whenever, wherever! Anything and everything, anywhere and everywhere! We are to be ready, at all times, on all occasions, in all situations and circumstances, to be The LORD’S representative, and to be prepared to give a response to anyone we come in contact with, no matter the time or occasion or where it’s at or who it’s with. Whether or not it’s convenient, easy or comfortable or not very convenient, extremely difficult and way out of our comfort zone. We are always His representatives and should always endure every hardship, be joyful, give thanks, praise and pray continually always depending and relying on the strength, wisdom and peace of The LORD to guide and sustain us. Here are a few scripture references to consider and be encouraged by: (Ephesians 5:20, 1 Timothy 2:8, 2 Timothy 2:12, 4:2-3, 5, 2 Corinthians 6:4, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
And here is a true story that illustrates the message of this scripture: A person had been violently ill for seven days, not able to eat any food nor keep any fluids down and therefore, had become dehydrated. This person thought they had a bad case of the flu, was actually convinced that this was the case and therefore, pressing into, with much prayer, agony and faith, was trusting The LORD for relief and deliverance. When relief was not forthcoming, it was decided, for this person, that a trip to the emergency room was in order. Upon arriving, it was quickly determined that the problem was a bad appendix that needed to be removed immediately. During the procedure, there were complications that necessitated a longer than usual hospital stay and care. So the individual with the recently removed bad appendix was put in a room with another individual who was also in for a extended stay in the hospital, due to their issue. It was not a pleasant, easy or convenient time for either individual, but one of the individuals was a representative of The LORD, while the other individual was not, and in fact, was not only suffering because of their physical issue, but was going through a very difficult time in their marriage, as their spouse had just left them for another, during the hospital stay and ordeal! Long story short: The LORD’S representative was at the exact place and at the exact moment in time, that they were supposed to be, all for the divine appointment, set up by Papa God, because of the love and compassion that He had for the individual who was not yet a representative of The LORD, but because of this “chance” encounter, received great encouragement and refreshing and ended up being a very thankful, full of gratitude and joyful representative of The LORD! We all need to be willing to not only be used by The LORD, but also be willing to be used up, by The LORD, if that’s what it takes to reach another. His will be done, regardless, not our will be done. Paul said that he became everything to everyone, so that perhaps they would be rescued. Blessings…

I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. (Psalm 9:1 NIV)
It is my great privilege, pleasure and honor to choose, of my own volition, with a purposeful determination and strong conviction, to make it my daily practice and disposition, of always expressing thanks and exuberant praise, with a heart full of gratitude and appreciation to You, my LORD and my God; holding nothing back or in reserve, I am fully devoted to declaring to everyone everywhere, with much enthusiasm, all about Your miraculous mighty acts, Your wonderful works, Your glorious exploits and gracious deeds. (Psalm 9:1 PDCP)
Bottom Line: we, as believers and the people of God, should make it our aim in life, to always, without holding anything back in reserve, choose to give all thanks to The LORD God Almighty and too, as we have opportunity, always choose to tell others of His glorious, filled with grace, goodness. Blessings…
Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name. (1 Chronicles 29:13 NIV)
Without any delay or procrastination, at this present moment in time and on this exact occasion, as well as, into the immediate future and beyond, at all times and on every occasion, we, Your very own chosen ones, all ascribe to You, the creator of Heaven and earth, our LORD God Almighty, thanks, from the very depths of our hearts; and, we also give to You our highest, most joyful, exuberant praise and worship, with the greatest of honor, unto Your wonderful, matchless, marvelously gloriously filled Name, which of course, is above every name. (1 Chronicles 29:13 PDCP)
Bottom Line: There is not ever a time, occasion, situation or circumstance, whereby, we should not always be found giving thanks and praise unto The LORD God Almighty, our God and redeemer. Blessings…
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. (1 Chronicles 16:34 NIV)
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 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 or up on us, as it is everlasting to everlasting, eternal, with the end of His love not ever being in sight. (1 Chronicles 16:34 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Because there is no end in sight to His great love for us, there should not ever be a cessation of our expressions of thanks to Him for His goodness and loving kindness! And 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 it would never be sufficient; in another words, we can’t thank or praise Him enough, so don’t stop now, don’t ever stop! Blessings…
