Shake Well Before Using

June 21, 2021

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.

Multiple times in the Gospels Jesus shows us a picture of His relationship with the Father by seeking His guidance and approval before stepping out on His own. We need to live in the same way, asking God to show us how to use what He has given us for His purposes and step out in obedience.

God did everything to give us the opportunity to become His kids by sending His only Son to die on our behalf. When we accept this free gift of salvation, we step into a growing relationship with our Heavenly Father who loves us and provides for us, instructs us and disciplines us, guides us and cares for all of our needs.

Because of Christ’s death on the cross we now have the opportunity to become joint heirs with Him and call God our Daddy. When we become Christians, He lives inside of us, and when we die here on earth we get to go home to be with Him forever.

The Bible speaks often of fathers imparting wisdom to their sons, and not only biological fathers but also spiritual fathers. Discipleship is a key part of living in a biblical community, and specifically men need to look for younger men to foster and help grow their relationship with God.

When we choose to follow Christ we must count the cost and willingly stretch, giving up everything for His sake, and following wherever He leads us. We can trust that God will provide for all of our needs, but at the same time understand that following Him may leave some marks through which He will be glorified.

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.”
June 14, 2021
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.

The Bible teaches us to remain connected to Jesus, as He lives in us through the Holy Spirit, in order so that our lives will bear His fruit. As He continually works in us, His fruits such as love, joy and patience begin to grow and others get a taste and want what we have.
June 11, 2021
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.
June 10, 2021
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.

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!
