Thou Shalt Suffer

November 5, 2013
When you choose to follow Christ you are also choosing to suffer as He suffered. Many times that comes in the way of temptation. When you are tempted in an area that you know you struggle in, choose to suffer in doing the right thing and you will be rewarded 
because righteousness is addictive.

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.

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. You must be filled with God first before you can overflow Him with others.

The Bible clearly states that we are slaves, but the master is up to us. You can choose to be a slave to sin, allowing the devil to run your life, or you can be a slave to God and live in obedience. Even when you disobey God, His grace is still extended to you and sometimes that comes through consequence.

There are people in this world that have no idea that there is a spiritual battle going on for their soul and they live wickedly, allowing the devil to win. We must put on the armor of God and fight for them, telling them passionately about God’s love and His offer for salvation.

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.”

It is easy to cast others off that we do not like, get along with, or may even be repulsed by. However, Jesus commanded that we love one another without excuses. When we love others we show the world the love that God has for them and we can love them because He loves us.

Rather than trying to conquer your biggest sin struggle at once, try focusing on the small stuff and overcoming those things. Once you begin to win it starts a snowball effect and eventually you will overcome the big stuff with God’s help.
October 24, 2013
When we choose to follow Jesus we have to make sacrifices in our lives in order to obey Him. Regardless of your past or what other people may be doing, if you say you love Jesus and will follow Him then follow through.
October 23, 2013
When you become a Christian it is your responsibility to tell others about Jesus. This may mean that you have to enter uncomfortable situations, but it is more important to obey Him than to be comfortable.

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!
