THE WITHDRAWING CHRIST

by Bill Elliff October 18, 2022

When you gaze on Christ (and you must), you observe a life of perfect serenity. We look at Him as He was on earth and see a man that was never in a hurry but always on time. His withdrawing was an essential part of His balanced life.

WE SHOULD LISTEN TO GOD

WE SHOULD LISTEN TO GOD

by Bill Elliff September 22, 2022

Our attention is given to those we think deserve it. If we have someone we disregard, we may hear it audibly, but we will not follow it internally. We regularly sift through all the world’s noise and choose to follow those we value.

YOUR MOST PROFOUND AND MISUNDERSTOOD BLESSING

by Bill Elliff September 21, 2022

If you are a follower of Christ, you can recount multiple blessings from God’s gracious work in your salvation.

DON'T MISJUDGE THE POWER OF GOD

DON'T MISJUDGE THE POWER OF GOD

by Bill Elliff September 20, 2022

It is a natural belief that the biggest wins. That human power is the necessary ingredient for success. That the higher intellect, the greater resources always have the advantage.

FORGETTING YOUR RESTING PLACE

by Bill Elliff August 23, 2022

God made us. As His creatures, fearfully and wonderfully made, He has ordained rhythms for our lives. When we follow Him, like sheep with a great shepherd, we are led into all the right paths. Trusting His perfect leadership, we find joy, productivity, nourishment, balance, purpose … and rest.

BECOMING A RELIABLE CHRISTIAN

by Bill Elliff July 13, 2022

Many professing followers of Christ are very weak. Their lives are marked by a daily battle with petty sins they should have overcome many years ago. They must constantly be reminded of the most elemental truth.

HOW DO YOU MAKE EACH DECISION IN THE COMMON DAY AND HOW IS THAT WORKING FOR YOU?

HOW DO YOU MAKE EACH DECISION IN THE COMMON DAY AND HOW IS THAT WORKING FOR YOU?

by Bill Elliff June 29, 2022

Your life is made by multiple decisions. So, what do you do first as you face the choices of each day? Sadly, most of us do not do what Jehoshaphat recommended. “Please inquire FIRST for the word of the LORD.” The word “first” literally means “as the day.” It could mean “today, right now.” But it also implies “for this day, in this particular moment.”

ALL THE WAY TO THE FINISH LINE

ALL THE WAY TO THE FINISH LINE

by Bill Elliff June 21, 2022

This is a consistent principle that God speaks to us repeatedly: if you have an affection for something God has forbidden, it will gradually turn your heart to the god behind that affection. You will not be a man after God's own heart like David was, but a man whose heart is turned away after other gods, like Solomon.

THE PATTERN FOR A GOD-BLESSED LIFE

THE PATTERN FOR A GOD-BLESSED LIFE

by Bill Elliff March 15, 2022

The blessing of God is when God takes something natural and makes it supernatural. When He takes the normal beyond normality. When His hand and his smile are upon a person, a family, a land. To be under God’s blessing is to be in the optimum position for this life and the next.

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.
