SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/05/15- “If We Do Our Part, Papa God Will Absolutely Do His!” (Leviticus 19:18)
Premise Question: What is our part, our duty to perform, our responsibility to fulfill, our attitude, approach and behavior to exhibit and have towards others, no matter what; and, if we are able to do this, with The LORD’S help, what does Papa God say He will definitely do, as His part, if we will do our part?
““Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against a fellow Israelite, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.” (Leviticus 19:18 NLT)
Do not search for ways, by trying to discover or devise a plan to retaliate and repay someone, in order to exact punishment, in a vindictive or vengeful way upon them, nor should you ever, for any reason or justification, continue to tolerate carrying or holding, in yourself, ill will and burdensome feelings of resentment and bitterness towards others; but, choose to walk in release and love towards everyone and treat others as you yourself desire to be treated, and don’t forget to always leave room for Me, Papa God, to act upon your behalf. I Am, The LORD God Almighty, who made you. (Leviticus 19:18 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Our part is a deliberate and perhaps, for some, even an extremely difficult choice; especially if one attempts to do it on their own and in their own strength, without relying upon the enabling help of The LORD. We must choose to walk in release towards others, by forgiving them and then, letting go of the pain and choosing to hold onto the promise given to us in Papa God’s Holy Writ! Our duty and responsibility is to love Papa God, walk in His love and release and then love others in the same way that He loves and forgives us. Our approach should be one of humility, patience and long suffering, and also, that we fully accept and recognize that we can’t do this on our own! Our attitude should be a gentle, meek, kind and forbearing one, without holding or bearing a grudge, being vindictive, bitter, resentful, hateful or seeking a way of exacting revenge and getting even, by retaliating and attempting to settle a score ourselves. We are to bear with one another, but we ought not to be an angry bear, with each other! Be bearable, not unbearable! So, what is our part? “To do what is right, to love mercy and to walk humbly before Papa God!” (Micah 6:8)
Papa God’s part, which He will certainly be faithful to do and accomplish, is to rescue, restore, renew, and redeem His very own, and then, He will surely deliver His vengeance upon any and all those who’ve hurt, attacked or in some way, come against His precious and greatly beloved very own children! The LORD will repay! The LORD will avenge! The LORD will carry out His retribution and perfect judgements, done in a way, fashion and manner that is far beyond any way or thing that we could ever imagine or even ever be capable of carrying out! And besides, we are to forgive, release and ask The LORD to be merciful upon them, not asking Him to go and “get em” and to “get em” real good!
So, if we do our part, Papa God will most definitely and most thoroughly absolutely do His part! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 05/01/15- “It All Boils Down To This ‘One’ Thing!” (Galatians 5:14)
Premise Question: Given the unambiguous edict and direct command given to us, by The LORD, why do some of us, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, have such a difficult time embracing and putting this one specific command into practice, or do we?
For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Galatians 5:14 NLT)
So, in order to completely satisfy the entirety of Papa God’s divine law, that was given to Moses, we must allow ourselves to be arrested and captured by this one supreme and direct command, ordered by Papa God Himself; which is, to love our neighbor, having a strong affinity and affection towards them, not isolating, insulating or alienating ourselves from our fellow humankind, but pursuing, developing and having personal connections and individual ties with them, by extending the same love, grace, mercy, compassion, care and real concern, that we want and do extend to ourselves! (Galatians 5:14 PDCP)
Bottom Line: Are there some of us, members of The Company of The Redeemed, that are, in practice, actually loving our fellow humankind, our neighbors, as much and in the same way and manner as we love ourselves? Now, if so, this could pose or present a real problem or issue on a number of different levels, if in fact, we don’t love and respect ourselves very much! So, we should love, respect, honor and treat our fellow humankind, our neighbors, in the same way and manner that Papa God has shown His love, grace, mercy, compassion, care and real concern for all of humankind, and specifically for all those who’ve taken advantage of His overture and free gift of freedom, through The Redeemer, Savior and LORD, Jesus Christ! Wouldn’t it be great if we were really good at doing this ‘one’ thing? What would that look like? What kind of impact would it have and what would it change or cause to be different and transformed? What would really happen to the world around us, if we were able pull it off, by actually making it our ambition, our focus, goal and aim to, with diligence, devotion and earnest effort, intent, inclination and daily practice, do this ‘one’ thing, by giving it our all? We’ve all been given a sacred trust and responsibility, for no one is exempt, because of some mitigating circumstance, situation or event, to fulfill our obligation and duty, to love and be good neighbors to our fellow humankind, in the same way and manner that Papa God has loved and is our good neighbor. Let’s do for others, what He has done for all of humankind, by reaching across time and space and every barrier, including sin, to love and redeem everyone! GRAB-Grace Reaches Across Barriers! Thank The LORD that He did GRAB us, now let’s GRAB others, in love, for Him and His glory! Because it all boils down to this ‘one’ thing! Blessings…
