No Average Joe

October 26, 2016
Joseph in the New Testament was an average guy who decided to obey God and became Jesus’ step-father. When we become Christians we are no longer “average Joes” and only human. The moment we become believers God lives in us through His Holy Spirit and directs us to do His work.

When we blend families we have all the odds against us for everything to go smoothly. We must make sure that we are depending on God and allowing His work and leading to take place in the relationships that are built.
October 25, 2016
The Christian life is meant to be lived out communally so that we can have examples in those who are ahead of us for how they’re living a godly life. As they follow Christ and we imitate them, there can be others behind us who can follow us, ultimately everyone being led to Jesus.
October 24, 2016
When we realize how much we’ve sinned, we can then realize how great God’s forgiveness is that He extends to us. Because of Christ’s death on the cross that paid the price for all of our sin, we have the opportunity to accept the pardon that is offered to us.
October 23, 2016
When we continually do work for God out of our own strength we end up tired and worn down. It is good to believe what we read in Scripture and follow that up with obedience to do what it says, but we must also apply faith in that He will do what He has promised in and through us.
October 21, 2016
Jesus offers to live in us forever, giving us eternal life, and we must respond with obedience to the things He tells us to do. Although He may have us go places that are difficult, it’s better that we face those challenges with Him instead of face the inevitable trials of life without Him.
October 20, 2016
It is easy to criticize someone in authority, however the Bible teaches us to pray for them instead. No person that has been placed in authority has been put there outside of God’s sovereignty and we must honor their authority while praying for God to work in and lead their heart and decisions.
October 19, 2016
There are numerous stories in the Bible of people who made some big mistakes and yet God still used them to accomplish His work in the world. While it’s important that we do not continue to live in sin, there is nothing that we can do that God can’t turn around and use for His glory.
October 18, 2016
The only place that can ever truly have the claim that “what happens here stays here” is the foot of the cross. When we accept Christ’s forgiveness and love, we leave our old selves behind and we become new creations. We must never forget that bad seed produces bad fruit no matter where we plant it, and good seed produces good fruit no matter how long it takes to grow.
October 17, 2016
For some reason we think that we are in control of ourselves, our decisions, or even to some extent the result of an election. As Christians, we have the responsibility to live a godly life, and so that we must do. Unlike any material thing, God hears, sees, and understands our problems and it is Him who calls the shots, and His plan always prevails.
October 16, 2016
There is a very big difference between someone who is a father and someone who fathers. Rather than simply adopting us into His family and letting us be, God desires a continued growing father/child relationship. Jesus tells us to ask our Father for all that we need and He will provide it. We must never forget to thank Him for the gifts that He gives.

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!
