Too often we get caught up in seeing the flaws of the authority over us, especially when it comes to our government.  The fact of the matter is that God is always in control, no matter who holds any kind of authoritative office, and it is by His Sovereignty that that person is even in that office.  Rather than complain about the way things are being run, we should be constantly on our knees praying for the person in charge and asking God to work on that person’s heart, trusting God’s control more than losing heart by watching the flaws of man.

We all need encouragement every now and then, but few people are willing to give it in fear of building a big ego.  Rather than letting anything stop us from encouraging others, we should simply encourage them as God leads us to, and let God deal with a person’s ego.  When Christ was on earth, God gave Him verbal encouragement a couple different times, affirming that He was pleased with His Son.  Although God does not need it, He loves for us to praise Him, and in doing so we ourselves gain encouragement simply from verbally speaking of God’s faithfulness, strength, power and might.

When we look at ourselves simply for who we are, we do not normally see someone great.  However, because God is in us if we have chosen to follow Him, He has adopted us into His family and it is because of Him that we are great.  Rather than getting down on ourselves about the mistakes we have made, or on the other side of the spectrum getting high on ourselves because of how prideful we are, we should rather see ourselves clearly through God’s eyes.  He sees us as valuable and it is because of Christ’s death on the cross that we are heirs to God, His sons and daughters, great in Him.

When looking at Scripture, it can be as confusing as looking at a sheet of paper with a whole bunch of random dots on it.  We need someone to connect the dots for us so that we can then connect them for others.  The Bible is filled with truths about God, creation, sin, Jesus’ birth, death and resurrection, and instructions for life.  While it’s good to go to church and hear a sermon that helps connect some dots, it is essential for the follower of Christ to read the Bible themselves and learn to connect the dots that they read and study.  Once we are able to connect dots ourselves, Jesus tells us to disciple others (connect the dots for them) and teach them to do the same.

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!
