Pure Sin

January 16, 2015
We often put sin on a scale and say that some sin is too bad to be forgiven while our sins aren’t bad enough to keep us out of Heaven. The truth is that, because of Christ’s sacrifice, God offers grace and forgiveness to everyone regardless of their sin. We need to see our sin for what it is, all of it separating us from God, and turn around in gratitude that He has washed us clean.

When we face difficulties in our lives, it’s easy to want to go back to the past when life seemed easier. God wants to use those difficulties to grow our faith in Him so that we can receive His spiritual blessings that we would never have if we went back.
January 15, 2015
While the world tells us to hate our enemies, hold grudges, and sin in this way or that way, Jesus tells us to live backwards according to the world’s standards. The only way we can do this is when He is living in us, and when we live this way we realize that we are really living forwards in the way He designed us to live.
January 14, 2015
We must be willing to open our mouths and speak when God prompts us to because He will give us the words to say and we can trust Him to use what we say to reach the people we’re talking to. God wants to speak to us and through us but we have to let Him use us the way He wants to.

The Bible expresses the importance of gathering together as the family of God to encourage each other, help those who are hurting, and keep each other accountable. One of the best contributions you can make to the Christian community is simply to show up consistently and be an active part.
January 12, 2015
When Jesus lives inside of us, we often neglect cleaning house for Him because it can get very messy sorting through our lives. What we need to do, rather than making the outside look clean by doing all the right things, is clean our house from the inside out so that the things that truly matter in our heart can be made clean forever.

The easiest response to boredom or even suffering is to move on to the next thing rather than sticking with it, whether it’s relationships, jobs, or church. When God calls us to stay in something, He gives us the power to do it and others benefit from our perseverance.
January 8, 2015
We may not be chosen to die a physical death for Christ’s sake, but everyday we are called to die to ourselves, take up our cross and live for Him. We must ask ourselves if we’re really willing to take a stand for Christ no matter the cost. If the answer is yes, no price we must pay can compare to the victory we celebrate in Heaven.
January 7, 2015
It is not sinful to be upset about something, but how we handle it can be sinful. When we try to control ourselves we end up out of control, but when we give ourselves to God and allow Him to put His peace, love, and joy in us then we can respond righteously.
January 6, 2015
Although we may feel like there is nothing special about us, God has made us special and is simply looking for us to be available for Him to use us in extraordinary ways. When Jesus lives inside of us, we are meant to do amazing things because it is not us doing those things but rather Him doing them through us.
January 5, 2015
It’s easy to thank God for how He’s blessed us and go on about our lives without taking the time to look around and see how we can help others. As the Body of Christ, we are called to reach out and help all those in need that we come in contact with. We must have eyes to see the needs and willingness to follow through in meeting those needs.

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!
