Just Like Your Father

June 16, 2024

The Bible teaches us that when we become believers, it’s not about acting like Jesus but rather having Jesus live inside of us. We can allow Him to work in our lives so that someday we can be perfect just as our Heavenly Father is perfect. In order to imitate God like Scripture teaches, we need to know Him by having an intimate relationship with Him.

The lasting affect that our earthly fathers can have on us plays in big role in how we relate to God as our Heavenly Father, as well as how we are able to leave the past behind and walk new. When we are born again, God doesn’t just make us an improved version of our old self but instead makes us brand new. We must learn to leave our old man behind and put on our new self as our identity in Christ.

The story of Ruth in the Bible shows a great example of what it means to trust God and obey. Ruth’s loyalty to Naomi and obedience to what she said led Ruth to marry Boaz, and later in their family line was Joseph, the father of Jesus who saved the world.

Since the beginning of creation the devil has been out to steal, kill and destroy humanity. We must always be on the look out for his schemes, deny the natural pulls of the flesh, take up our cross of suffering and follow Jesus. In our obedience to Him we find abundant life and every difficult thing we encounter on the way is all worth it to be with Him.

History proves over and over that there are consequences for disobedience to God. We must make the decision to do the right thing, and when we fall down to get back up and keep moving. Our choice of obedience will pay off in the end.

Just like the Flinstones would get in their car and use their man power to make it go anywhere, we are too often living our spiritual lives in our own power. The same power that raised Jesus from the dead lives inside of us as believers and we must tap into that power, allowing Him to live through us.

When we become Christians, we join a family that together carries out the work of God in the world. We must learn to love believers and nonbelievers alike, and that can only be done with God’s help. Being a part of the Church is not all about what we get out of it but also what we have to offer to it.

God has promised to take care of all our needs, yet we still tend to cling to our possessions, loving them more than Him. When we give our lives to Christ, He owns us and therefore all of our stuff is His stuff.

Trying to hold on as tightly as possible to our lives and our plans is a sure way to lose it all in the end. The only way of winning is to lose ourselves to God, letting go of everything and living in obedience to Him.

The Christian life is like running a race, and we need to run as if we want to win. It takes work, it’s not easy, but God puts people in our lives to help run with us. Let’s let go of the things that are weighing us down and run the race until the end with endurance and determination.

At Christmas time we wrap gifts for loved ones and place them under a tree to be opened and received. The Gospel story tells of the greatest gift of salvation, bought and paid for by the blood of Jesus, freely given and received under the tree at the foot of the cross.

About Richard Ellis

Authentic... Genuine... Sincere... This guy is the real deal. He loves God. He loves his wife Rebecca and his 3 daughters. He loves people. He loves his job. He loves Texas BBQ. He loves an occasional round of golf. And he loves the Dallas Cowboys (but don’t hold that against him!).

Richard grew up as a missionary kid in Brazil, coming back to the states to finish his education. He graduated from Baylor University in 1982 with a BA in Oral Communications, and earned his MDIV in 1985 from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, making him the sixth generation of pastors in his family. His early days of ministry included serving for three years as the Single Adults Pastor at the First Baptist Church of Dallas.

Then in 1997, Richard Ellis founded Reunion Church, a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, non-denominational church in the heart of Dallas,Texas. Dallas needed a church like it. And it would need a pastor like Richard. So Reunion Church was born. And now the radio show and the website ( join the Reunion Church community under the leadership of this guy. And we’re all the better for it!
