MY NEXT STEP THIS COMING YEAR ... and yours

by Bill Elliff November 16, 2019

The Son of God was willing to go to the hardest, most misunderstood place. He went, with His cross, to die outside the city. It was a place of refuse (literally, the city dump). It was the most dishonorable environment in the city. But He went there for a purpose: to take the place of sacrifice, suffering, and self-denial so that, in so doing, it would bring life to others.

And, it worked. His self-denial set countless millions free!

HOW TO OVERCOME ALL FEAR, or, THE CONFIDENCE OF THE TRUE CHRISTIAN

HOW TO OVERCOME ALL FEAR, or, THE CONFIDENCE OF THE TRUE CHRISTIAN

by Bill Elliff November 11, 2019


All of us live with lots of fear in life. One of the greatest fears is “Do I have what it takes?” We want to know—as a man/woman, dad/mom, husband/wife, employee/employer, student/teacher—do I have what it takes to do what’s required?

The answer of course, is “no.” On your own you are completely incapable. In fact, Jesus said that, apart from Him, you could do nothing (John 15).

But with Him, we can do anything! “I can do ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens me,” Paul said (Philippians 4:13).

by Bill Elliff October 25, 2019

Anyone can love those who love them, Jesus said on the Sermon on the Mount. But the most profound witness is to genuinely love—and respond in love—to those who hate and persecute us, leaving vengeance in the hands of a perfect Judge. Paul tells us how.
