THE SPIRIT WHO LEADS

THE SPIRIT WHO LEADS

Does someone around you need to hear about Christ today? The Biblical record indicates that God wants to use us constantly to lead people to Himself. But our usefulness depends upon our willingness to be led by the Holy Spirit. He alone knows where we should be, who we should speak to, and what the results will be.

THE SPIRIT OF POWER

THE SPIRIT OF POWER

by Bill Elliff November 16, 2022

Everything in God’s created order moves by some type of power. We see by the power of the sun and the power of electricity. We breathe by the power of our lungs and the powerful outside pressure of the air. We move by the power of muscles and nerves placed by God in the human body. We think through the power of the mind.

THE PURPOSE-SHARER AND WORD-GIVER

by Bill Elliff November 06, 2022

Jesus has a great agenda and those who fail to understand and cooperate with His plan are continually confused. But all who humbly listen and join Him will find themselves in the most glorious enterprise possible. The longing in our hearts to make a difference will be completely satisfied, and the purpose of our Father will be fulfilled.

YOUR MOST PROFOUND AND MISUNDERSTOOD BLESSING

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. Eternal life, the presence of the Holy Spirit, rich rewards, an heir and joint heir with Christ, eternal security, the ability to commune with God through His Word and prayer, real purpose … and on and on.

But there is one blessing you might overlook, and it is most important.

OUR DAILY TASK

OUR DAILY TASK

by Bill Elliff November 09, 2021

There is a daily routine that is missing in most believer's lives. It has not yet been programmed into the mind's computer because we have not done it enough to let it become habitual. The tragedy is, for the Christian and unbeliever alike, it is the most important habit of our lives.

DO YOU SEE THE IDOLS AROUND US?

DO YOU SEE THE IDOLS AROUND US?

by Bill Elliff October 07, 2021

My son, who is planting a church in a Northern Colorado city, intentionally took me for a walk through a sculpture garden recently that is located in a prominent spot in his large city. It was beautiful, convenient, and filled with people.

To my amazement, at every 30 yards or so, there was a stone statue. The whole garden was a prayer garden, and each statue was named. The farther we walked, the more I realized it was a garden designed to help you pray to ancestral spirits. This religion is called animism and is no different from the false religions we read of in the Scripture. Paul encountered this in Athens.

SEIZING THE MOMENT

SEIZING THE MOMENT

by Bill Elliff September 20, 2021

When we are filled with God, by His Spirit's indwelling, we begin to understand the purpose for our lives on this earth. On Pentecost, tongues like fire fell along with God’s Spirit on the fledgling believers. They immediately began to speak of Christ in languages they did not know. And, by God’s design, the place was filled with people who were hearing the gospel in their native tongue.

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.

EXPERIENCING CHRIST

EXPERIENCING CHRIST

by Bill Elliff November 10, 2020

What is the truly Christian life? What is the experience of the Christ follower? And what is their purpose?

As Paul is giving the account of his conversion before an angry crowd in Jerusalem, he relates what Ananias told him at his conversion. It describes what Paul was to experience. Notice, that all of these things are not merely intellectual, but practical and experiential.

WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?

WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?

by Bill Elliff October 28, 2020

Tozer said that "What you know about God is the most important thing about you." Right behind that knowledge, though, is what you know about yourself.

Do you know who you are? Paul did. Often in the opening lines of his letters to the churches he would give a one-sentence description that summed up his life. To the Romans, he summed it up in 17 words.

THE IMPORTANCE OF “ALL”

THE IMPORTANCE OF “ALL”

by Bill Elliff October 14, 2020

Father, thank You for saving me from a life and eternity without You. Remind me daily of the depth of this grace and the height of Your mercy towards me. Thank You for those who shared the truth of the gospel with me that led to my salvation. Compel me now to pass to others what has been entrusted to me.

Deliver me from fruitless self-centeredness. Lift my gaze outward. Help me see people not as objects, but as those You love with complete and absolute compassion; as those that only one message and one Savior can heal. Fill me with hourly urgency and grant me the clarity and boldness to speak the word of God without fear. Let me do "all things—ALL things—for the sake of the gospel." Open my mouth in gospel witness and my heart in gospel love.
