THE ESSENTIAL COUPLET

by Bill Elliff January 26, 2022

But there are two truths that are more important than all the rest. These are usually not taught in our schools or valued by our society. Sadly, most people are never even exposed to these truths, and they live regrettable lives, hampered by tragic misunderstandings.

THE BONDAGE OF JEALOUSY

THE BONDAGE OF JEALOUSY

by Bill Elliff January 24, 2022

It's deadly. When jealousy enters a human heart, it will always burn and destroy not only the jealous man but those around him. Nowhere is this seen more than in the lives of Joseph's brothers in Genesis 37.

GOD MEETING US WHERE WE ARE

GOD MEETING US WHERE WE ARE

by Bill Elliff January 18, 2022

“God is easy to live with,” wrote Tozer. The world and its Prince paint a caricature of God as a demanding, unloving tyrant. But in His perfect love, how could this possibly be true? He is perfect in righteousness, but also perfect in grace. He meets us where we are to bring us to faith.

ARE YOU WISE?

ARE YOU WISE?

by Bill Elliff January 10, 2022

There are many people who have some knowledge, but few who possess real wisdom and true understanding. We can confer degrees and applaud human thinking, but those we consider the most knowledgeable can be completely devoid of wisdom. Their learning, without God, can make them utterly foolish.

GOD’S DESCRIPTION OF YOU

GOD’S DESCRIPTION OF YOU

by Bill Elliff January 02, 2022

How would God sum up your life in a paragraph? Genesis, Chapter 5 is a brief genealogy from Adam to Noah. In the midst of the normal accounting, there is one man with a noticeably different description. This phrase, “walked with God” repeated twice, set Enoch apart from other men. Three words summarize his life. Three words imply so much.

A WORD TO THOSE WHO ARE READY TO RETIRE

A WORD TO THOSE WHO ARE READY TO RETIRE

by Bill Elliff December 21, 2021

For the follower of Christ, retirement is a myth, and should be. Everyone will face a season where they must transition from their current form of employment. If our paid job has been seen as our primary mission, we have nothing to do. But for the faithful follower of Christ, our occupation has never been our main job.

THE CRUCIAL NECESSITY OF SOBER ALERTNESS

THE CRUCIAL NECESSITY OF SOBER ALERTNESS

by Bill Elliff December 20, 2021

This world is not a friendly environment to the believer. The devil and his demons are prowling unceasingly. There is no timeclock our enemy. He never decides to give us a little break. Just the opposite. Like a lion with a wounded prey, our weakest moments are our most vulnerable. He is not interested in teasing you but devouring you. And the pages of history are filled with his victims.

EMBRACING GOD'S TRAINING

by Bill Elliff December 10, 2021

Every significant task on earth requires training. The homemaker, the accountant, the pastor, the CEO all must learn somewhere and somehow. To do life in the way God intends requires training, and God Himself, our Father, is the master trainer.

GOD MAKING US FIT OR HEAVEN AND EARTH

GOD MAKING US FIT OR HEAVEN AND EARTH

by Bill Elliff December 08, 2021

The great miracle of Christianity is that there is a fundamental change that occurs when we come to faith in Christ. There are two changes that happen to a believer that are both judicial (dealing with the problem of the guilt of our sin) and practical (dealing with the problem of our power over sin in our daily life.
