SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/11/15- “The Thing That Matters Most!” (Philippians 1:9-10)
Premise Question: What is the thing that really matters the most, for us who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, and should take the preeminence over and above anything and everything else, in our daily walk and sojourn of faith; being recognized and accepted, as having the greatest value, is the most crucial and of the utmost importance?
I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ’s return. (Philippians 1:9-10 NLT)
Here is my supplication, a prayerful petition offered up to Papa God on your behalf: I entreat You O Lord, that Your precious people will increase exponentially, without measure, in their love for seeking and having a greater awareness and insightful perception of Your superior knowledge, as well as, a profound desire to go deeper and deeper in understanding the complexities and intricacies of Your true nature; so that, Your children may have the ability to distinguish clearly, what’s most advantageous for them, and may also be absolutely free from any contamination, being untainted, without guilt or blame, able to stand before Jesus Christ, on the day He judges all things. (Philippians 1:9, 10 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Love is the absolute definitive answer! The unfailing love of Papa God being expressed through our daily lives towards others, in our walk and sojourn of faith, supersedes everything else; for there is nothing, in this life, as important as His love overflowing out of our lives, by us allowing our faith to express itself with the unfailing love that never runs out, comes up short or is ever on empty, but always has an unlimited supply, with more than enough left in reserve, to be drawn upon whenever needed, for whatever occasion, situation or circumstance, to be poured out copiously into the lives of others! We are urgently encouraged to continue to grow deeper and broader in our knowledge and understanding of Papa God’s true nature, which is the greatest and most authentic love that’s ever been known or experienced by humankind. We should not stop growing and increasing exponentially in His pure love, as it will enable us to keep living a life that is pleasing to Him, helpful and refreshing to others, and will also keep us blameless and ready to stand confidently, with full assurance, before The LORD, upon the day of His glorious appearing. Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 05/05/15- “Building A House Of Wisdom For Life!” (Proverbs 9:10)
Premise Question: Where do we begin, what do we do first and then, after we’ve started, how do we proceed in building the structure of the house of wisdom for our life?
Fear of the LORD is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment. (Proverbs 9:10 NLT)
It is extremely wise and prudent, on your part, to honor, with a reverential awe and respect, The Sovereign LORD God Almighty, as it will be the most important and bedrock decision, that you’ll ever need to make in life. And then, when you deliberately pursue and increase your knowledge of The Most High, it will give you strong support, great insight and understanding, as well as, a more excellent and preferred outcome in your life. (Pro. 9:10 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The beginning of being really smart, if you’re going to be a successful, wise and prudent builder; is to have a huge and healthy dose of holy reverential awe and honorable respect for The LORD Most High, who is The Sovereign Papa God Almighty! There is not a better way or place to start, in building your life house right. For it is the very foundation building blocks of all that is virtuous, good, right and holy and is the firm and sure bedrock of a strong and overcoming faith, that’s built into the very structure of the house of wisdom for your life. Papa God’s Word declares that a house that’s built by wisdom, will become strong and stable, with great insight and understanding and will make good sense. And when knowledge of The Most High is diligently pursued and added, it will have a wonderful abounding effect, with desirable results and blessings of a life that’s on the bedrock of wisdom, rather than the disastrous results of building your life on any other foundation, which ultimately becomes nothing, as it is built on sifting sand. Blessings…
(Proverbs 24:3, Matthew 7:24-27)

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/02/15-“Nothing Else Matters, If I’m Bereft Of True Authentic Love!” (1 Corinthians 13:2)
Premise Question: Is there anything else, in this world, more important, than being able to fully experience, first, by receiving and possessing, then, by the giving and expressing of, God’s true, authentic love?
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. (1 Corinthians 13:2 NIV)
Let’s assume, that I have the unique ability of being able to make inspired declarations, with absolute accuracy and also, that I’m able to apprehend the comprehension of quite puzzling and absurdly perplexing enigmas, as well as, being fully aware and enlightened, with perfect perception. And, furthermore, let’s also say, that I am in possession of a great and overcoming faith, powerful enough to remove and uproot the mountains from their very foundations, hurling them into the sea; but, all of this tremendous display of extraordinarily and unearthly glorious ability is completely meaningless and amounts to and counts for nothing, for if I do not possess and express God’s true, authentic love, I am a useless nobody. (1 Corinthians 13:2 PDCP)
Bottom Line: In answer to the question of whether there be anything more important, in his life, than possessing and expressing God’s true, authentic love, no there isn’t; for it matters not how talented we may be, or how many unique and splendid abilities we can display in a spectacular fashion and manner; all of it is for naught, and doesn’t count for or amount to anything, if we haven’t first, personally experienced, by receiving, then, personally given, by expressing God’s true, authentic love towards others. Blessings…
Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but whoever hates correction is stupid. (Proverbs 12:1 NIV)
No matter who you are, if you’ll relish discipline, by embracing and allowing it to thoroughly train you, in order to develop obedience in you and if you’ll be a lover of knowledge, by cherishing the principles of truth, it will increase your insight and understanding, causing an awareness, in you, of the great benefits derived from loving discipline; but, if you are one who dislikes intensely, with an extreme hostility for and a detestable aversion of correction, not allowing a remedy and proposed adjustment to be applied to your wrongful thinking, behavior or actions, then you are simply foolish, without any sense and just plain stupid. (Proverbs 12:1 PDCP)
And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, (Philippians 1:9, 10 NIV)
Here is my supplication, a prayerful petition, offered up to Father God on your behalf: I, Paul, entreat You O Lord, that the people of God will increase exponentially, without measure, in their love for an awareness and perception of Godly knowledge, as well as, a profound desire to go deeper and deeper in understanding the complexities and intricacies of Your true nature, so that they may have the ability to distinguish clearly, what’s most advantageous for them and may they also be absolutely free from any contamination, being untainted, without guilt or blame, able to stand before Christ, on the day He judges all things. (Philippians 1:9, 10 PDCP)
