Shake Well Before Using

October 6, 2014
There are circumstances in our lives that we wonder why God is putting us through such difficulties, but we must understand that He may be using those times to humble and test us in preparation for how He wants to use us. When we face those moments, it is essential to keep our eyes on Him and pass the tests because when we pours us out after being shaken, He can use us in much greater ways than if we had not been shaken in the first place.

We all begin our lives under the law of sin, meaning that there is no escape from nature taking it’s course and that we will sin. Jesus made the way of escape through His death and resurrection so that we no longer have to live under the law of sin but rather live in freedom. When we choose to live in freedom, He changes our hearts and changes the world through us.

God’s grace covers all of our sin, but we must not take advantage of that so that we can sin all we want. We are called to live lives of obedience to Him, and having faith in Him is the first step to pleasing Him. When we live our lives to please God then when we see Him face to face in the end He will say, “Well done.”

As Christians, we are children of God and therefore we need to set an example for everyone around us of what it looks like to obey our Heavenly Father. There are always others watching how we live, especially children, and many will imitate us. We must instruct them to honor God in the way they live by living it out in our own lives.

Just like the Israelites in the Bible had seen God provide for them in miraculous ways over and over and still they turned from Him, we can easily get caught up in making idols for ourselves out of the things in this world no matter how much God has proven Himself to us. No matter how wild we may get wrapped up in our sin, the wildest thing is that He will always accept us back.

There are circumstances in our lives that can effect how we receive God’s Word, but despite our circumstances we can always choose to receive it the way He wants us to. When we hear God’s Word we need to allow it to take root in our hearts so that it can change us and we can begin to bear fruit and multiply the impact it has onto others.

We all deserve to be squashed like bugs because of the sins that we have committed, yet God has chosen to show us mercy and grace because of His love for us. When we humble ourselves and come to Him begging for mercy, we receive it and can then give it to others.

There are a lot of people who are not Christians who are doing plenty of good things in the world and it is often hard to distinguish them from Christians. The difference is that for Christians, we have faith in God first that changes us from the inside and as God works in us we must allow Him to work through us so that others may see our works that point to Him.
September 25, 2014
As Christians, we are called to use our time on earth wisely, doing the things God has called us to do and realizing that the stuff here on earth is just stuff and we can’t take it with us. God has called us to run a race, and so let us run that race to the best of our ability, investing all that we’ve got and bringing others alongside us as we run.
September 24, 2014
There are times in our lives when we face suffering and pain, and we may pray fervently that God would just take it all away. Sometimes it is His purpose that we face those things in order to bring us closer to Him, and we know that we never face them alone.
September 23, 2014
There are many examples in the New Testament where the apostles were persecuted for preaching the Gospel, yet they responded by rejoicing in the Lord and He blessed them for it. When we follow their example, we may not receive the blessing here on earth but He gives us peace to endure the suffering and promises to bless us in Heaven.

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!
