Dying To See Jesus

May 15, 2015
We are promised in Scripture that if Jesus is our Lord and Savior then we will be with Him forever in Heaven after we die here on earth. While we can look forward to eternity with Jesus, we are still on this earth because God has a job for us to do. We need to do the work that He’s called us to do before going home to Him.

People often treat churches like gyms where they may have a membership and they might even go sometimes, but they don’t really use it for the purpose that it’s intended. We need to not only attend church but be an active member in it, working out ourselves to become trainers so that we can help others become trainers as well.

Whether we’re in a position of authority or under someone else’s authority, ultimately we answer to God for our actions. He has placed certain authorities in our lives that we must submit to, even if we don’t necessarily agree. God may want to put us in a position of authority later on but we have to show ourselves trustworthy first.

The difficulties we face in life can often feel overwhelming and bring us to a point of asking God for what life was like in our past. Sometimes God will give us our past as a blessing to help us realize how much we hate it. Jesus promises to give us rest when we come to Him with our heavy burdens, and He provides all of our needs as He bears our burdens with us.

Even though David sinned against the Lord, God still had a plan and a purpose that He worked on fulfilling in David. We can often make mistakes, but it’s when we repent of them and turn to God that He takes our mess and makes it into something useful.

Mothers often show an example of putting others before themselves. However, mothers are not the only ones called to this way of thinking. The Bible teaches us to think of others above ourselves in all situations.

Being a mom is a great calling that God gives to many women, but it is not an easy calling. The Bible instructs women to live and raise their families a certain way. God chose Mary to be the mother of Jesus, to raise the man who would save the world, and what a job it was.

God sent His own Son, who is equal with the Father, down to earth to live a sinless life, die on a cross and be raised to life so provide the gift of salvation for us. We need to respond by believing in Him and accepting Him as Lord and Savior in order to obtain the life He has to offer.

Without faith in the Gospel that characterizes every part of our lives, our spirituality can become flat. People who don’t know God are attracted to Him when we share our faith that is living in us, producing love and joy in every circumstance.
May 6, 2015
When it comes to living God’s way, He calls us to die to ourselves and take up our cross, which is a symbol of suffering and death. The truth is that there will always be suffering and we will all die physical deaths, but we can choose to stand before God at the end and say we did it our own way or we can hear Him say if we chose His way, “Well done.”
May 5, 2015
We so often get caught up with recognition from other people and winning trophies for earthly accomplishments. Those things are not bad to have, but we should be doing everything to bring God glory, knowing that the crown He places on our head in Heaven is worth far more than anything we could obtain on earth.

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!
