SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/30/15- “We are Papa God’s Incredible Handiwork—His Masterpiece!” (Ephesians 2:10)
Premise Question: What is Papa God’s, perfectly designed, divine plan, 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 incredible 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 before we were born into this world, so as, to carry out and do, by fulfilling and bringing to complete fruition, His ultimate divine purpose and plan of reconciliation for all of humankind! (Ephesians 2:10 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Papa God’s, perfectly designed, divine plan and purpose, was to ultimately bring all of humankind, whosoever will, of His greatly beloved and most cherished part of all of His creation, 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!

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 12/02/15- “We Are Papa God’s Masterpiece—Saved By Grace—Created To Do Good Works!” (Ephesians 2:8-10)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 12/02/15- “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 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 work that’s been prepared and is ready in waiting, for you to begin to do. So, get to work! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 03/16/15- “The Proof, That We Understand Papa God’s Ways!” (James 3:13)
Premise Question: What is the verifying proof that we, all members of The Company of The Redeemed, truly comprehend Papa God’s holy and righteous ways?
If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom.
(James 3:13 NLT)
When you are diligently prudent, being filled with Papa God’s foresight and having a full awareness and comprehension of His methods, manner, His mode and His deliberate approach and practices, with regards to righteousness and humankind; it then becomes incumbent upon you to authenticate, verify and validate it demonstrably, with acts of kindness, a life full of ethical integrity and honor, while living your life circumspectly, with the meekness and lowliness, that comes only from Papa God’s perfect and pure wisdom from above. (James 3:13 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The proof, of course, starts with our love for Papa God, but our love for Papa God is verified only when we are obedient to His commands, (John 14:15) to not only love Him, but to love our fellow brothers and sisters, (1 John 3:11) as well as, others that are also members of humankind. (John 3:16) So, our love for others is authenticated and validated when we show respect and civility, through our expressions towards others, with acts of kindness and being involved in doing good deeds, without expecting anything in return. Our great declarations and proclamations, with glowing and flowing rhetoric, is not sufficient alone, in in itself. For it surely must be followed up, with our diligent actions and efficacious good deeds, and that, with great humility, concern and care. (James 2:14-19, Colossians 3:17) Blessings…
