Lord of the Flies

April 3, 2012

When Jesus was on earth, He was accused of being Beelzebub, “Lord of the flies,” also known as the devil.  The truth is that Jesus is Lord of everything, even the flies.  He put up with so much for us, even to the point of death when it was the flies that were circling His body on the cross.  What will it take for us to proclaim that Jesus is Lord of our lives?  We may not understand everything and we may come across some doubts, but Jesus said that it is blessed for those who do not see Him and yet still believe.  No matter what we go through in this life, it is worth more than anything to claim Him as Lord over it all.

Every believer needs to realize that they are in a battle, in the cross hairs with the attacks of the devil.  When God is using you to reach others, the devil will do anything he can to stop that.  We see in the story of Job in regards to his wife how crucial it is that we examine ourselves to make sure that we are not being used by the devil as a detriment to someone else.  In the story of Jesus being tempted in the wilderness we can learn in importance of knowing Scripture to combat attacks.  The reality is that we will be attacked.  We must learn to protect ourselves by putting on the full armor of God because fighting on His side is worth it.

There are stories in the Bible of men who boldly stepped out of their comfort zone to stand up for what they believed in.  God calls us to boldly proclaim His name and what He has done in our lives.  When we make a decision to step out of our comfort zone and tell others about Him and then act on that decision, we are obeying Him by being courageous.  There are sometimes consequences to doing this, and it may cause others to look at you differently, but what matters most is that God is pleased because it is Him with whom you will be spending eternity.  The more we boldly step out, the more we begin seeing growth and small successes which not only encourage us to continue in such a way but will also encourage others to do the same.

The Miracles

The way God designed the family to work is for the man to be the head and take the responsibility.  The only way this can work in the greatest way is if that man is following God as his head.  God has modeled for that man the perfect way to love the bride unconditionally and giving is life up for her.  Though that may not always happen, and consequences come when mistakes are made, it is essential to continually check that the marriage relationship is working the way God intended it to work, and that comes first with the relationship between God and the man.  God is good and full of grace to help pick the man up when he has stumbled so that he can continue moving forward, modeling for his children the kind of man boys should be and girls should look for.

We tend to be excellent at things that will not last forever such as our jobs, our families, or even our sin.  Some of those things are not bad things to be skilled at, but we need to make sure that we are putting in all that it takes to be excellent in our spiritual lives rather than settling for being so-so.  The Apostle Paul tells us to run the race in such a way that we are focused on that finish, on Jesus.  We only have one life to live and so we must live it knowing that in the end we will be able to see every opportunity that we missed to grow spiritually ourselves and help others.  May we be constantly aware of those opportunities while we are here so that in the end we can know we gave it our all.

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!
