Out of Control

August 10, 2016

We often try to take control of our lives when in reality we have no control. What we need to do instead is trust that God is in control and that no matter what happens He loves us and will provide for all of our needs.

God created things to work in a certain order, and when it comes to men and women, men were created to lead and women were created to follow the man. Women are wonderful creations of God, as are men, and when things work in the order that God has laid out for men and women, it brings immense glory to Him.

When we choose to follow Christ we are also choosing to suffer as He suffered. Many times that comes in the way of temptation. When we are tempted in an area that we know we struggle in, we must choose to suffer in doing the right thing and we will be rewarded because righteousness is addictive.

As His children, God wants us to come to Him and tell Him we love Him. You cannot do that unless you know Him and see the things He has done for you. When you have that relationship with Him, you cannot help the worship that then overflows.

We all tend to gravitate to people who are like us. Riff raff is another term for garbage, and many who are low in society are thrown off as such. Just as Jesus focused a great majority of His ministry on people thought as lower in society, we are to also reach out to the riff raff in our world because when it comes to eternity in Heaven we are all equal.

Whatever sin we are hiding will be exposed at some point and we can choose to expose it ourselves or wait until someone else finds out. If we’re looking for the truth, it is the person Jesus Christ. He will cover our sin, but we must confess it to Him.
August 4, 2016
We cannot run away from the sin and struggles of this world but we can go in and not be affected because what we have to offer is better than anything else in the world. We must be filled with God first before we can overflow Him with others.

God never intended for us to think to little or too much of ourselves. When we accept His love for us then we can see ourselves in a correct perspective as valuable to Him and for Him. We can then love ourselves and love others around us as we see them in the same light.

The story of Daniel in the lion’s den is just one example of a man’s obedience to God even when it potentially cost him his life. God may not always rescue you like He did Daniel, but your obedience to Him will be rewarded in eternity.

You cannot manufacture the presence of God. His Spirit fills His people and that is what attracts people to church, not the beauty of the building. May His Spirit be so evident in us so that when we are together people will say, “God is in that house.”

The Bible says that lying is an abomination to God, yet we often do it flippantly. If we want to live a life that is pleasing to God then we must be truthful to Him and to all those around us.

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!
