BECOMING MORE POWERFUL

BECOMING MORE POWERFUL

by Bill Elliff October 13, 2021

One of the great hopes of all our lives as followers of Christ is that we can become MORE. More useful, more loving, more gracious, more like Christ, a better witness, etc. Apollos was such a man. We only have five verses in the whole Bible that describe him (Acts 18:24-28), but look at the phrases God uses.

THE LOUDEST VOICE IN YOUR HEAD

THE LOUDEST VOICE IN YOUR HEAD

by Bill Elliff August 30, 2021

The loudest voice in your head determines the direction of your life. You are driven by who you listen to most carefully and how you respond to what is said.

DO YOU WANT THE BEST BREAD?

DO YOU WANT THE BEST BREAD?

by Bill Elliff August 23, 2021

I love bread. Almost any kind. When I was a child, I would often go to the corner bakery with my father. I pressed my nose against the glass counter and watched in utter fascination as they brought our bread straight from the oven and cut it on a special machine. I could hardly wait to get home and find the butter. I love bread (did I already say that?)

I have discovered, though, a few downsides of bread through the years. Bread can go bad. Mold sets in, and it's useless. And too much bread can add extra pounds that none of us need.

YOUR BEST LIFE IN 20 WORDS

YOUR BEST LIFE IN 20 WORDS

by Bill Elliff August 16, 2021

Our natural inclination is for self-promotion, self-comfort, self-fulfillment, and self-recognition. A merely humanistic agenda can easily consume us. Many never escape this broad path, vainly believing it will yield the life they've always wanted.

But if a man wants the most substantive life he must die to this approach. Here's how Jesus described it in twenty words.

by Bill Elliff August 03, 2021

Even in the church, thousands know Christ and perhaps have a personal relationship with Him but are not experiencing a daily, conscious sense of His presence. Who are not experiencing Him.

OUT AND IN

by Bill Elliff March 19, 2021

Every step of our spiritual journey is designed to take us from something to something greater. Even the final chapter of this earthly life is from the bondage of this world to the glories of heaven.

GOD IN THE MIDST

GOD IN THE MIDST

by Bill Elliff February 24, 2021

I want to be a man that God can entrust with His truth and that can, in whatever measure God allows, experience the glory of God. We all long for this genuine experience of God in our lives. In His mercy and through the great work of Christ, God has now made it possible for us to be literally inhabited by God! His Spirit lives in us, giving us the opportunity to know and be led by His presence daily and continually.

THE FOUNDATION FOR YOUR LIFE

THE FOUNDATION FOR YOUR LIFE

by Bill Elliff February 22, 2021

Every house must have a foundation. Without a solid footing, the house may look good for a while externally but will have a structural failure when bad weather comes. A solid foundation is the key to a building that will last. What is true of a building is also true of a life and a people.

NO TURNING BACK

NO TURNING BACK

by Bill Elliff January 21, 2021

Perhaps you are being called by some naive friend (or demonic enemy in disguise) to fall back into the familiar old ways. Old habits, old pleasures, old relationships, old doubts, old disobediences. Do not give in! Stand strong and firm following Christ into the new ways and lands He has taken you. The lands that were gained by faith.

8 WAYS 2020 HAS BEEN GOOD FOR THE CHURCH

8 WAYS 2020 HAS BEEN GOOD FOR THE CHURCH

by Bill Elliff December 31, 2020

The year 2020 was an extraordinary experience. There are very few who look at the year with gratitude, and the “2020” jokes are everywhere. A whole new set of words have become standard such as COVID19 and social distancing. While we long for “the good old days,” we look with anticipation for a new, “COVID-FREE” year.

DO YOU LOVE JESUS?

DO YOU LOVE JESUS?

by Bill Elliff December 22, 2020

There are many things you can do in your Christian life. Much Christian work. Many think that rote activity is the heart of true Christianity. But all of these pale in comparison to one central issue, which is captured in the ultimate question.

Do you love Jesus?

IF YOU'RE WONDERING TODAY

IF YOU'RE WONDERING TODAY

by Bill Elliff December 21, 2020

You may have crawled out of bed this morning after a hard day yesterday and wondered what this day holds. You may not be thinking much about yourself or God or His Son. You may be facing a difficult day ahead with multiple problems or overwhelmed by the routineness of life.

That's why the Bible was given and why we must read it every day.
