WHEN GOD WON’T TALK

by Bill Elliff April 17, 2020

There is nothing that wakes me up spiritually any quicker than when it seems that God is not communicating with me. The reason? I know that my life can bear no fruit if God is not leading me.

THE GOD WHO MAKES US REMEMBER

HONORING OUR LEADERS

HONORING OUR LEADERS

by Bill Elliff April 13, 2020

It is the common, national pastime to laugh at and ridicule our leaders. To castigate anyone who disagrees with us and seek to destroy them. To exalt their sins and weakness instead of praying for them (as Paul instructed in 1 Timothy 2). Not so with David.

Because David honored others, others honored him, and, most importantly, God honored him also. It would raise the spiritual and emotional temperature of our nation if we would follow the example of this great king and the ultimate King who “when reviled, reviled not again.”

INCOMPLETE OBEDIENCE

by Bill Elliff April 10, 2020

God made us. Like anything that is made, God designed us with a pattern and a purpose. He created us to live in dependency upon Him. And the foundational component of this faith is obedience. If He is our Lord, when He speaks we must believe that His will is good, and we must respond in obedience.

by Bill Elliff April 07, 2020

There is nothing the world needs more than men and women who know how to hear God and are unashamed to speak His word. People who understand His Scriptures and pay attention to His Spirit. If we position ourselves to be such men and women, God has the opportunity to lead His people. And there is nothing more important than being led by God.
