SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/01/15- “All That We’ll Ever Have Need Of, Papa God Has Provided!” (1 Corinthians 1:4-5)
Premise Question: What have we, The Company of The Redeemed, been graciously given, by Papa God, that we ought to be extremely grateful and always expressing thanks to Him for?
“I always thank my God for you and for the gracious gifts he has given you, now that you belong to Christ Jesus. Through him, God has enriched your church in every way—with all of your eloquent words and all of your knowledge.” (1 Corinthians 1:4-5 NLT)
I am continually thanking and praising The Almighty Sovereign Papa God, The Creator of Heaven and earth, who is my God, for you and because of His merciful unmerited gracious favor That He has provided for you and everyone else, in the giving of His One and Only Son, Jesus Christ, our LORD and Savior, and I’m thankful you’ve accepted His gracious gift of salvation. For it is only in Jesus Christ and because of Him, that you have been supplied with an ever increasing amount, an over abundance of His glorious riches, in every way, for every part and parcel of your everyday existence, with all manner of grand gestures and expressions of speech, eloquently spoken, as well as, beautifully written down. You will also be enriched with all knowledge, being fully aware, familiar and aquatinted with, everything you’ll need to know for now and into the distant future. (1 Corinthians 1:4-5 PDCP)
Bottom Line: We, The Company of The Redeemed, individually and collectively, should not ever stop being grateful to Papa God for providing us with our Blessed Savior and LORD, Jesus Christ! We ought to always be giving thanks to Him for His gracious favor, and the merciful and lavish gifts that He continually pours out upon us! For it is Papa God who has made it possible for us to no longer be lost, alone and held captive in the darkness of depravity, but has set us free, by redeeming and purchasing us, so that now, we exclusively belong to His Son. It is because we belong to His Son, that we are now made rich in every way, both as an individual member in The Company of The Redeemed and collectively, as in the whole Church! Our union with The LORD has helped and enriched us in ways that is far beyond our natural ability to speak, gain knowledge, have insight, comprehension or understanding. So, because of what Papa God has accomplished and continues to accomplish, through His Son in us, we will always have all that we’ll ever have need of, in every way and in everything! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/11/15- “RPG—ACT, Weapons That We Should Utilize For Good!” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/11/15- “RPG—ACT, Weapons That We Should Utilize For Good!” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
Premise Question: Why is it so important that we choose to express ourselves in the appropriate way and manner when using the spiritual weapons of RPG and ACT; and just what is an RPG and ACT?
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NIV)
Rejoice and be glad, taking and expressing great delight always, on every occasion, without exception, every time, anytime, all the time, pray earnest spiritual prayers, offering up devout supplications, entreaties and petitions continually, without cessation, give, without expecting anything in return, expressing heartfelt thanks in any and all circumstances, regardless of existing conditions, events or situations; for this is Papa God’s desired purpose and will for your life, in His Son, Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 PDCP)
Bottom Line: One of the greatest and most powerfully effective weapons that we, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, have available to us to utilize is gratitude! Gratitude is hope expressed; therefore, being grateful to Papa God will produce the greatest benefits and most desired results in our lives and the lives of others. Gratitude will produce hope in the most difficult of situations and circumstances. But in order to produce a hope that will not disappoint, gratitude will have to be expressed, not depressed or repressed, perhaps though, at times, compressed, as it may be tested and pressured, put in a press, or a grinder, in order to be expressed, squeezed, heated, pressurized or crushed, but the results will extract and produce a wonderful aroma and goodness, transforming it into something that is quite useful, as it becomes a beneficial blessing to many others. Here are just a few examples to consider: the coffee bean is roasted, put in a grinder and brewed, the grape is crushed, the popcorn kernel is pressurized and heated, the orange, lemon and lime are squeezed, all of this must take place before the goodness of each is expressed and extracted out, in order to become useful and a beneficial blessing. So, here’s how we will show and express our gratitude to Papa God: we RPG and ACT…RPG—Rejoice-Pray-Give: Rejoice on every occasion; Pray earnestly and about everything; Give generously at every opportunity. ACT—Always, without exception; Continually, perpetually and without ceasing be; Thankful in every situation and circumstance, regardless the existing conditions. By doing this faithfully, we will utilize these weapons of our warfare most prudently, judiciously and effectively and also fulfill Papa God’s will and purpose for our lives, in Christ Jesus. Blessings…
