There are instances in this world where children, women, and sometimes men are taking beatings on a regular basis. While the Bible instructs us to not retaliate when someone hurts us but rather to respond in service, we also must seek God in each situation. If He tells us to stay and suffer, we must obey and believe He has a plan for it, but if He tells us to go we must go.

Jesus went through excruciating suffering in order for us to be saved. When He says in Scripture that we are to take up our cross and follow Him, that means that we need to be ready at any moment to give our lives for His sake. Even if we don’t ultimately die a physical death on His behalf, we need to die to ourselves and follow His will in our everyday lives.

The Bible tells us that no matter what we do or how we grow, it all must be rooted in godly love or else it’s meaningless. When God shows us an area of our lives that needs to change, our maturity is deepened when we listen and respond in obedience.

When we listen to God, He will lead us to meet the needs of people that cross our path. Since all our stuff is His anyway, we need to be good stewards of what is His and distribute it where He wants us to. When we give to other people, Scripture tells us to give in secret so that they do not find out and give glory to God.

As Christians, we ought to be waiting on the Spirit to blow some wind in our sails, and allow Him to guide us to where He wants us to go. Then, when we’re there, we need to listen and watch for what He is doing so that we can respond in an appropriate manner. The Holy Spirit desires to use us to do extraordinary things, but we can’t do those things without Him and so we must wait, listen, watch and respond.

As Christians, we have the Holy Spirit living in us and working through us to fulfill God’s will. When we are prompted to share the Gospel with whoever we are talking to, we need to step out in obedience and do it because we may not know the work that God is doing behind the scenes.

The Christian life is like a race that we are running, and the devil will do everything he can to try to take us out. We must let go of whatever is holding us back and run the race, focusing on the prize at the end.

When we choose to follow Jesus, He leads us to other broken people in need of a healing Savior. Instead of ignoring people’s sin that is destroying them, we show that we love others by our willingness to sound the trumpet where there is sin in their lives and help them take steps out of their entanglement.

Divorce is so common in the world that we live in because too often people are trying to do things on their own. The only way that a relationship will grow to build a strong marriage is if it is built on the rock, that being Jesus Christ.
February 14, 2017
Too often we hold back things in our own lives, such as our talents, our time or our money, because we think that if we offer it up that God is just going to take it all away and leave us empty handed. Instead of holding onto these things in our lives, we should offer them to God because He has shown that He can take whatever we have to give, no matter how small, and multiply it, and He will supply all our needs.

The first man, Adam, sinned and therefore brought death into the world. We are all born sinners because we come from Adam. Christ, spoken of in Scripture as the last Adam, was the perfect sacrifice that allows for us to become new creations through His death. If we feel God calling for us to repent and be saved, we must not hesitate to respond and receive this free gift of eternal life.

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!
