God used John the Baptist solely for the purpose of preparing people for Christ’s coming. When we are obedient to God it is not 15 minutes of fame that we are seeking for ourselves but rather looking for ways to direct others’ attention to Him.

God can use obscure things in our lives to get our attention just like He did with Balaam and his donkey. When we’re so focused on getting that thing out of our lives we cannot see how it is protecting us. We must ask God to show us what it is that we’re ignoring that He is trying to use to get our attention.

The Bible emphasizes key concepts for the Church to hold fast to in order for it to maintain good health and continued growth. Those concepts include discipleship, servant leadership, worship, community, and evangelism. Our purpose is to glorify God by spreading the Gospel and increasing His Church.

God made us for His own work and we must allow Him to mold and shape us into whatever vessel He wants to use. Instead of being jealous of others and how God is using them, we need to allow Him to work in and through us so that He gets all the glory from the work that He accomplishes.

We are all given this life on earth, but all of us will die from here. We can choose to live our lives for God by having faith in Christ and being saved so that we can live again with Him in Heaven. We can also choose to live this life giving into all that the world offers and at the end find that hell awaits us. The choice is ours.

Every one of us is a cracked pot because not one of us is perfect. It is God’s grace that can use those cracks in our pots to draw others to Him if we are vulnerable enough to reveal them to others, and as God shows us the cracks in our lives He also mends them. Regardless of our cracks, we still must bring the water to the thirsty world that God has us in for that reason.

God designed things so that He gets all the glory in everything. He used the cross, which seemed foolish to the world, to save all those who believe. He draws the seemingly foolish and weak because they admit their need for Him freely which then brings Him glory.

Just as an earthly parent disciplines their children, God disciplines us when we make mistakes. All of our mistakes have consequences, but God gives us those consequences so that we can learn and move forward. If we’re experiencing consequences over the same thing, we must learn from our mistakes and move on.

Religion requires us to attain knowledge and apply it to our lives so that our behavior changes. God offers us so much more than that when He comes into our lives and makes the words that we read in Scripture dwell in our hearts and change us from the inside out.
May 11, 2016
Our lives are marked by millstones and milestones. Millstones are moments of our lives where we have made a tragic mistake. Milestones are those monumental times that something great has happened. When we are discipled by another, they can help our millstones turn into milestones so that we can then help others, expanding the Kingdom of God.
May 10, 2016
When difficult circumstances come we often automatically think that it is the devil that is at work but it can actually be God at work in us. He has to be inside already in order to work in us and through us so our first step is to let Him in, then allow Him to do His work.

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!
