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.

THE HOLINESS THAT SEES GOD

by Bill Elliff September 06, 2019

Pay attention to holiness. Be intentional about all He has already said to you. Set aside deliberate time to fast, pray, and read and meditate on His Word. Be extremely careful about your obedience.

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.

THE UNSTOPPABLE POWER OF AN UNDISTRACTED LIFE

by Bill Elliff August 13, 2019

If you are a follower of Christ, God has called you to a great work. He has more to accomplish through you than you can possibly imagine. Your enemy knows this and is in the business of throwing thousands of distractions in your path over and over again to detour you so God’s work will be delayed and ultimately thwarted. Remember, he is not after you, but the work of God (which he hates) through you. Understand the power of an undistracted life.

The Mighty Sword in Your Mouth

by Bill Elliff July 08, 2019

We all know it, but we rarely stop to think before we speak. The tongue is powerful. With it, James said, we can bless God and curse men. Our speech today can lift people up, bringing life, or tear them down, bringing death. It can bring life or death to others and to us.

WHEN AM I REALLY FREE?

WHEN AM I REALLY FREE?

by Bill Elliff May 31, 2019

 When is a train free to run? When it's on the tracks or off the tracks? On the tracks, it can move at incredible speed with perfect freedom, doing exactly what it was created to do. Off the tracks, it's unable to run as designed.

We were designed, as C.S. Lewis said, to run on God. His path is the track that liberates us. That is why veering away from His will is so laborious and leads to incredible bondage.

OUR COUNSELORS

... determine so much of our lives. How many people have gotten in trouble because they accepted a foolish challenge from a supposed friend? Listened to counsel that was directly opposed to the will of God? Missed the mark on a dare?

But how can you accomplish that in this life?

THE DISCIPLINE THAT HELPS US

THE DISCIPLINE THAT HELPS US

by Bill Elliff May 24, 2019

Years ago my dear pastor friend, Harry Li, said something profound to me. He was asking for prayer that his life would not slip away from living in the fullness of Christ. "I have come to understand," he said, "the discipline needed to be continually filled with the Holy Spirit." I instantly resonated with that statement and it plowed through my mind for many days.
