SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/29- “Living A Life Worthy Of Our High Calling!” (Ephesians 4:1-3)

Premise Question: Is it possible to fulfill Papa God’s calling upon our lives, by living and serving The LORD honorably and faithfully, and in the process, to achieve worthwhile success and the favor of The LORD, without the presence of His Godly characteristics, values and qualities of humility, gentleness, meekness, being forbearing, tolerant and long suffering with others, as well as, showing consideration towards them, with a constant effort, on our part, of striving and aiming for harmony and tranquility?

Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God. Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭4‬:‭1-3‬ NLT)

I Paul, am presently being held captive, as a prisoner, because of the ministry and high calling of Papa God upon my life. It is therefore, for this reason and at this very moment, that I urgently plead with you to live your life in such a way, that it will be seen and recognized by Papa God, as being honorable and worthy of the high calling He has placed upon your life. I exhort you to always show deferential respect towards others, being amiable, agreeable, gentle and kind. Also, choose to be calm and composed, ever forbearing and tolerant with others, as you make it a common practice of overlooking the faults in others. And, in all of this, do it because of your great undying and unfailing love for Papa God and others. Finally, with due diligence and effort, earnestly strive to keep a perpetual state of harmonious tranquil comfort and peace amongst you. (Ephesians 4:1-3 PDCP)

Bottom Line: In a word, NOPE! For without the presence of Godly characteristics, qualities and values, in our lives, it is entirely impossible to live, in such a way, manner or fashion, that would be counted worthy and recognized favorably, by The LORD, as achieving success in fulfilling the high calling that He has placed placed upon each one of us, in this life. (Ephesians 2:10) The calling of Papa God, on our lives, should never be looked upon, as being a great career move, wonderful occupation, an exciting vocation, or desirable profession or a great and wonderful job to pursue. But, should always be approached with great gravity and should never be entered into lightly, as it must be accepted, as being from The LORD, with humility and gratitude, and as being your life’s work, your mission and ultimate pursuit and ambition in and for this life. The calling of The LORD comes with a personal TAG from Him, that with His help, we are to develop and grow up into, by fully maturing. The TAG is: Talents, Abilities and Gifts, conferred upon us, by Him, that enables and empowers us to accomplish all that our calling may entail. One more thing, it should never be our aim, ambition or intention, to climb the proverbial “corporate ladder,” while serving and carrying out the high calling that Papa God has placed upon our lives! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 07/02/15- “We Are What We Think!” (Philippians 4:8)

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/02/15- “We Are What We Think!” (Philippians 4:8)

Premise Question: Is what we think about and how we think, really that important, and does it have any effect or make a difference in our lives?

And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. (‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭8‬ NLT)

One last thing, my dearly beloved friends. Papa God ultimately desires that we all have a laser focus on being absolutely authentic, genuinely sincere and honorable, only involving ourselves in noteworthy, ethically proper and sound, free from all contamination, being completely chaste, in all our activities and dealings, appearing delightful and pleasing, not only to the eye, but as well, to the heart and mind, inspiring reverence and affection, with great approval. So, anything that’s worthwhile or superior, deserving extraordinary laudable commendation and praise, these are the things that should consume and influence our thoughts, behavior and actions. (Philippians 4:8 PDCP)

Bottom Line: I love the encouraging message and instructions given in Philippians chapter four! For after the Apostle Paul tells his brothers and sisters to stay true to The LORD, he then expresses his great love for all the people of Papa God, and how he longs to see them again, by telling them that them staying true to The LORD is all the encouragement and eternal reward that he’ll ever need or desire to receive for his efforts and work amongst them. He instructs and encourages them to settle their disagreements, to always be joyful and to rejoice continually, to always be considerate of others, to never forget that The LORD is returning, and to never worry about anything, but instead, always pray about everything, telling The LORD what they need and then thanking Him for all that He’s done for them. For then, His peace beyond belief will be experienced, by them, as He will guard and keep safe, their hearts and minds. After all that, though, Paul leaves them with one last thing, which is perhaps the thing that is most significantly important, as it has a tremendous bearing and affect upon a person’s outlook in life, in the way it influences and effects their perception about everything that happens to them, in the process of life and also how they interact and perceive everyone they encounter in life. It is critically imperative, as it is vital to everything in life, that we fix our thoughts, the way we think and what we think about and focus on! And the only way to fix that, is to take Paul’s encouraging admonition of focusing on the good, the right, the pure, the honorable, the true, the admirably beautiful things in life, and to only think on the things that are excellent and worthy of high praise and honor. If you try and not think about something by, with great effort and determination, focusing on trying not to think of it, you’ll have a really difficult time not thinking about what you’re trying not to think about! But, if you’ll think only about and focus only on the things you ought to be thinking about, the good and positive, righteous and true, then you’ll be able to fix your thoughts, and have a whole new outlook in life! For we truly are greatly influenced and effected by what we think about and how we think! We Are What We Think! Blessings…
