MY NEXT STEP THIS COMING YEAR ... and yours

by Bill Elliff November 16, 2019

The Son of God was willing to go to the hardest, most misunderstood place. He went, with His cross, to die outside the city. It was a place of refuse (literally, the city dump). It was the most dishonorable environment in the city. But He went there for a purpose: to take the place of sacrifice, suffering, and self-denial so that, in so doing, it would bring life to others.

And, it worked. His self-denial set countless millions free!

WHERE IS YOUR REAL HOME?

HOW TO OVERCOME ALL FEAR, or, THE CONFIDENCE OF THE TRUE CHRISTIAN

HOW TO OVERCOME ALL FEAR, or, THE CONFIDENCE OF THE TRUE CHRISTIAN

by Bill Elliff November 11, 2019


All of us live with lots of fear in life. One of the greatest fears is “Do I have what it takes?” We want to know—as a man/woman, dad/mom, husband/wife, employee/employer, student/teacher—do I have what it takes to do what’s required?

The answer of course, is “no.” On your own you are completely incapable. In fact, Jesus said that, apart from Him, you could do nothing (John 15).

But with Him, we can do anything! “I can do ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens me,” Paul said (Philippians 4:13).

Anyone can love those who love them, Jesus said on the Sermon on the Mount. But the most profound witness is to genuinely love—and respond in love—to those who hate and persecute us, leaving vengeance in the hands of a perfect Judge. Paul tells us how.

TIME MANAGEMENT

TIME MANAGEMENT

by Bill Elliff September 27, 2019

Many of us find ourselves wasting time, which is our most precious commodity. When combined through a week (or a life) we spend thousands of hours doing senseless things and wonder why we don’t get the most important things done.

Just think of wasting 2 hours a day on something mindless and worthless (which is easy to do). That’s 14 hours a week (almost two whole workdays!) Over a year that’s 730 hours, or 91 8-hr workdays! 3 full months of workdays are wasted!

10 TRUTHS ABOUT CONFESSING OUR SINS

by Bill Elliff September 07, 2019

If we are feeling distant and disconnected from Christ and we long for revival in our hearts, our families, our churches, and our nation, it begins with an honest look at our own lives and a ruthless dealing with all that is displeasing Him and aborting His work. It is worth the time, and nothing will be restored to rightness and usefulness until we deal thoroughly with our sin.

THE HOLINESS THAT SEES GOD

by Bill Elliff September 06, 2019

And then, cry out to Him for greater intimacy. For as clear as His conditions are for you to see Him, they are clearly promised! He desires to reveal Himself to you more than you are aware for He is a God of perfect love towards you.

SPIRITUAL SELF-AWARENESS

by Bill Elliff August 29, 2019


Do you have what it takes? Do you worry about your inadequacy? Do you have an accurate assessment of your life? Have you found the secret of having confidence in any situation?

Many people are clueless about who they really are … perhaps most. One of the great secrets of the Apostle Paul’s success in life and ministry was his accurate understanding of himself, gained at the feet of Christ.

THE GLORIOUS NEWS ABOUT OUR PHYSICAL BODIES

by Bill Elliff August 24, 2019

Everyone in this life deals with the aches and pains and diseases and weaknesses of their physical body. We pray for those we know who are in deep physical distress. We mourn those who are dying. We fear physical loss. It is seen by most as their greatest enemy. Death is the one thing we cannot escape.

But for the believer, our physical deterioration is a sign of better things to come.
