SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 08/05/15- “Serve As A ‘Real Life’ Example Of Papa God’s Love!” (Ephesians 5:1-2)
Premise Question: In actual practice, not just some ethereal premise, that’s described with some wonderful sounding, highfalutin platitudes and soaring rhetoric, that’s uttered sonorously and euphoniously; how are we, The Company of The Redeemed, really supposed to imitate, live out and follow the perfect example of Papa God’s unfailing love, His Son’s sacrificial offering up of His life for us, and then, truly serve The LORD and others, which will produce the desired result of a pleasing aroma from our worship and service, that will ascend into the high and holy place, the very presence of Papa God?
“Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.”
(Ephesians 5:1-2 NLT)
Serve as a “real life” exemplary illustration of Papa God’s great example of His unfailing love, that He has shown towards all of humankind; for He desires that we, The Company of The Redeemed, should emulate and fully implement His example of unfailing love into our own lives. Therefore, as the highly cherished children that we are, we need to choose to conduct ourselves, making it our daily routine habit, to love in the same manner and way that Jesus Christ, our LORD and Savior, loved us, who are members of The Company of The Redeemed, when He voluntarily laid down His own life for us, without expecting anything in return, as the most delightful and pleasing sacrificial offering of obedience, completely surrendering His will to the will and divine purpose of His Father, our most loving, merciful and gracious Papa God, The One True Sovereign Almighty God. (Ephesians 5:1-2 PDCP)
Bottom Line: First of all, let me acknowledge that the premise question is a huge mouthful to chew, swallow and then digest, in just this bottom line. But let me try and distill and simplify it a bit! We have the ability to imitate Papa God because we are His children, created in His image, to do good works; works of kindness, to be long suffering, show favor, be merciful, gracious and to always be motivated and moved to compassion and genuine concern, by His great unfailing love for humankind. We can choose to follow and emulate the perfect sacrificial example of Jesus Christ, by also choosing to lay our lives down for each other, with expressions of encouragement and support, generosity, hospitality, civility, empathy, while exhibiting great patience, as well as, always expressing our heartfelt gratitude, thanksgiving and sincere appreciation for and towards each other. When we are successful in imitating Papa God, following the example of Jesus Christ and living our lives, being influenced, motivated and moved to action by the unfailing love of Papa God, then our worship of Papa God and our service to each other, will become a sacrificial offering, that will produce a pleasing aroma, that will ascend into the heavens and throne room of The Sovereign LORD God Almighty!

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 03/07/15- “Made Right With Papa God!”
(2 Corinthians 5:21)
Premise Question: How and for what divine purpose are we brought back into a right and proper relationship with Papa God?
For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:21 NLT)
For Jesus Christ, Papa God’s own beloved, perfect and without sin, Son. Who was not acquainted in the least little bit, with any kind of sin ever, was treated, by His Papa, as if He were the worst of all sinners; when He became the sacrificial proxy, a stand-in, for every transgression and sin of the whole of humankind. So that, they could be brought back into a justly approved, right and acceptable relationship with Papa God, through Jesus Christ, acting as their Intermediary. (2 Corinthians 5:21 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The how is: Papa God’s gift to humankind, in the person of Jesus Christ, who was the Great Facilitator, when He took upon Himself all of humankind sins, standing in our place, for the just judgment of our sin, by becoming the perfect sacrificial offering upon The Cross, thereby, satisfying the righteous requirements of Papa God’s Holy Law, which through, we then, are returned back to Papa God, in right relationship, approved and acceptable unto Him. The for what divine purpose is: So that we can make a personal appeal to others; “Come back to Papa God!” We do this, through the powerful persuasion of The Word of Papa God, the example of the love of Jesus Christ, our love for others, and through the power and the anointing of The Holy Spirit, which empowers the believer with unction to witness, compelling and persuading others to be reconciled back to Papa God! Let’s do this! Let’s allow The Holy Spirit to accomplish Papa God’s divine purpose through us! Blessings…
