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?

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.

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.

WHY YOU MUST READ THE BIBLE EVERYDAY

WHY YOU MUST READ THE BIBLE EVERYDAY

by Bill Elliff December 10, 2020

Every follower of Christ has some belief that he should read the Bible. But for many, it is an optional exercise. In reality it is indispensable. Paul convinces us of this in two brief verses to his young son in the faith, Timothy.

COOPERATING WITH GOD’S TRAINING

COOPERATING WITH GOD’S TRAINING

by Bill Elliff December 04, 2020

If you are a parent you are in the constant process of training, whether you realize it or not. You are training your child one way or another. In the best homes the training is Biblical and intentional. This training involves instruction, reproof, correction, and discipline that is given with loving consistency. In the same ways, our heavenly Father is always training us.

THE SHADOW AND THE SAVIOR

THE SHADOW AND THE SAVIOR

by Bill Elliff December 02, 2020

Every problem in our lives and in our world is a result of man's rebellion against the One who made Him. Since Adam’s sin in the Garden, every man has been sinful and separated from God at their birth. We are sinners and we have sinned continually. And the penalty for sin is always separation from God. (see Romans 6:23). This separation makes us incapable of living as we were designed to live.

DIVINE ACCOUNTING

DIVINE ACCOUNTING

by Bill Elliff November 24, 2020

All of us appreciate a good accounting system, even if we are not the ones administering it. You are grateful when you go to a store, that they will only charge you what is advertised. In business, you want to know how things will be recorded and have a clear understanding of what will be done, particularly when it’s your money that is involved.

God has an accounting system and Paul, when finally enlightened, realized that it was completely opposite of what he had operated under for years.

30 QUESTIONS THAT LEAD TO PERSONAL REVIVAL

by Bill Elliff November 20, 2020

As a leader, the greatest way to help others to a revived life is to live there yourself. This does not happen automatically. In fact, the pull of the world, flesh, and devil is so strong that we can easily slide into sin and find ourselves in deep need of personal reviving.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ. (Ephesians 1:3)

Do you realize what God has done for you in Christ? Notice the three uses of "bless" in the verse above. Paul blesses God because he has blessed us with every spiritual blessing.

WHO'S IN CHARGE?

WHO'S IN CHARGE?

by Bill Elliff November 16, 2020

There are thousands of breathtaking statements in the Bible. These are definitive statements which, if dealt with properly, should be the end of the discussion. These statements define what really IS, whether we agree or not. And, they demand a response. We can ignore them if we choose, but there are sad and destructive consequences if we try to live counter to what is true. It simply won't work right.

YOUR LIFE IN A SENTENCE

YOUR LIFE IN A SENTENCE

by Bill Elliff November 13, 2020

How would you summarize your life in a sentence? How would God summarize it? One day it will happen to each of us. For the apostle Paul, his summary is found in the last verse of the book of Acts.
