THE SAD SONG OF THE SELF-RIGHTEOUS

THE SAD SONG OF THE SELF-RIGHTEOUS

by Bill Elliff January 27, 2023

The religious leaders of Jesus’ day were driven by a tragic miscalculation of their own abilities. In their arrogance, they thought they didn’t need a Savior because they could be justified before God by their own “supposed” good works. And so, they rejected Christ. If you think you’re the savior, you’ll violently resist anyone who threatens your control.

THE SOON-COMING REIGN OF CHRIST

THE SOON-COMING REIGN OF CHRIST

by Bill Elliff December 29, 2022

It is easy for us to look around this terribly sinful world and think it will never end. We can easily be deceived into believing that evil has the upper hand, that the devil will reign forever, and that nothing will ever change.

But we would be wrong.

GOD IS SPEAKING

GOD IS SPEAKING

by Bill Elliff December 21, 2022

If God is speaking and is speaking through His Son, how could we turn a deaf ear? Disregard the Speaking Voice? Pay no attention to His blessed communication. Ignore a single word? How could we not read His word (His primary means of communication to us)? Listen to His Spirit (who is has placed inside of all believers so that we might “freely know the things given to us by God”)? Go days and months without prayer?

THE GREAT RESCUE

THE GREAT RESCUE

by Bill Elliff November 24, 2022

Christ's coming was for one purpose: to rescue us. To deliver us from this world and the cruel taskmaster of sin. His payment for our sins on the cross and our faith in Him for that very act sets us free!

THE MANIFESTATION OF CHRIST

THE MANIFESTATION OF CHRIST

by Bill Elliff November 15, 2022

There is nothing more precious nor important than the presence of Christ. Everything flows from the presence of the Lord. If you have Him, you have everything you need. Without Him, you have nothing that matters or lasts. Look through Scripture and human history. When Christ shows up, everything changes.

WITH HIM

WITH HIM

by Bill Elliff November 11, 2022

Think of this deeply. Let it sink into your soul. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, Alpha and Omega, Beginning and End, the Creator of all, wants to be with you! He has provided everything necessary for this to occur. He has initiated this relationship and it is not to be a momentary acquaintance but an eternal, increasing friendship. What a humbling thought and matchless privilege. And what a tragedy if we ignore His invitation and live without His presence. It was never meant to be so.

THE RELIABILITY OF CHRIST

THE RELIABILITY OF CHRIST

by Bill Elliff November 09, 2022

The great tragedy will be those who distance themselves from Jesus, foolishly doubting His word. Those who fail to believe in this life will forever abhor their pride. But those who humbly follow will find everything just as He said.

HIS SPEAKING VOICE

HIS SPEAKING VOICE

by Bill Elliff November 07, 2022

Of all the stunning things about Christ, one of the most compelling is this: Jesus speaks. John describes Him beautifully in the opening chapter of His gospel as the Word that was in the beginning and that continues to communicate to us even now. His voice, like yours, is one of the ways we come to know Him.

JESUS KNOWS

JESUS KNOWS

by Bill Elliff November 04, 2022

As He looks at us today (and He does) what does He see? We can be assured that He knows us as no other and longs to grow those He's created into His likeness. But there must be one thing about which we make no mistake: Jesus knows.

EMBRACING TROUBLE

EMBRACING TROUBLE

by Bill Elliff November 03, 2022

There’s nothing wrong with a “troubled soul” for Jesus had one. “Now my soul has become troubled,” He said to His disciples as He faced the final days of His life on earth and the impending cross (John 12:27). But an unsettled heart needs resolution and there is only one remedy.

THE ONE WHO BLESSES CHILDREN WAITS FOR US

by Bill Elliff October 31, 2022

The great concentration of our lives should be to look at Christ. To gaze at Him often and early through His Word and in prayer. Ask Him to reveal Himself to You. If you look carefully, you will always find one more reason to run into His arms.

WALKING A STUMBLE-LESS LIFE

by Bill Elliff October 29, 2022

No one likes to stumble. A physical misstep can be humbling but also painful. Stumbling over our words is frustrating. A wrong decision can have serious consequences. A moral stumble can be disastrous. Bad timing can abort good results. The possibilities of a stumbling life are endless.
