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.

A GOOD CONSCIENCE

A GOOD CONSCIENCE

by Bill Elliff November 11, 2020

Your conscience is your "self-knower." It is that intangible part of you that helps you know where you are spiritually, both before God and others.

If we violate what is right, our conscience tells us. As a believer, this is the Holy Spirit’s work in us called “conviction.” This is a wonderful provision by God, unless we have so violated over the years that our conscience is "seared" i.e., it has become hardened and scarred and unable to function properly.

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.

WHAT GOD USES TO TAKE YOU WHERE YOU NEED TO GO

WHAT GOD USES TO TAKE YOU WHERE YOU NEED TO GO

by Bill Elliff November 09, 2020

One day in heaven we will marvel at the activity of God. He is sovereign and perfect and never evil. He sees all, but for the man who trusts and follows Him explicitly, he will be led in "all the right paths for God's name's sake." The will of God will be done, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it. And sometimes, he can even use the evil of this world to get us there.

LIVING THE HIGHEST LIFE IN THE LOWEST TIMES

LIVING THE HIGHEST LIFE IN THE LOWEST TIMES

by Bill Elliff November 05, 2020

Every serious Christian I know wants to live rightly. To live in a way that is pleasing to the Lord and a blessing to others. To have an impact for the Kingdom of God. How do we fulfill this huge desire? There are so many enemies to God's way. Our flesh is so weak, the devil is so deceptive, and the world is so pervasive.

HERE IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU SHOULD DO TODAY

HERE IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU SHOULD DO TODAY

by Bill Elliff November 04, 2020

It’s our greatest dilemma. We don’t know what to do. All of us face moments and seasons when we are perplexed about the next steps. When we are confused or wandering.

This is why the Bible is so important. It is God’s Word directly to us. The Holy Spirit is given to the willing follower so that he/she might “freely know the things given to us by God.” It is a “lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.”

OUR DAILY TASK

OUR DAILY TASK

by Bill Elliff November 03, 2020

There is a daily routine that is missing in most believer's life. 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.

THE

THE "ALL THINGS" OF YOUR LIFE

by Bill Elliff November 02, 2020

There are over 7,000 promises in the Bible that are given by God to man. This promise is one of epic proportions because it stands at 20,000 feet looking over the whole course of a believer's life. It explains the correlation of good and evil. It gives hope for the Divine weaving that is going on in the entire tapestry of our lives … a tapestry with both dark threads and light.

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.
