Thoughts for the Day

II Samuel 20, 21, Psalms 31, 36, Mark 15:1-15

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

“Are you the king of the Jews?” asked Pilate. “You have said so.” Jesus replied. Mark 15:2 I read in Samuel of all the fighting for position. David, it seems, had to get tough on those who opposed him because he had been soft with Absalom. Jesus never has to posture. He...

II Samuel 18, 19, Psalm 29, 30, Mark 14:66-e

Absalom’s hair got caught in the tree. He was left hanging in midair, while the mule he was riding kept on going. II Samuel 18:9 Absalom had experienced a tragic thing when one of his half-brothers raped his sister. He hated his father King David for not dealing with that situation. I am...

II Samuel 16, 17, Psalms 27, 28, Mark 14:43-65

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. Psalm 28:7 David’s son Absalom struggled to know who to listen to. I don’t blame him. His father had inserted spies into his ranks. There is all kinds of “fake” news out there. We often speak...

II Samuel 15, Psalms 3,14,63, Mark 14:32-42

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I will not fear though tens of thousands assail me on every side. Psalm 3:6 King David made many mistakes, but he was not dumb AND he placed his life into God’s hands. You could say he created the situation where his own son, Absalom, rebelled against him. Yet in all these readings we see...

I Chronicles 20, II Samuel 13, 14, Mark 14:17-31

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

When King David heard all this, he was furious. II Samuel 13:21 It is said that King David was a man after God’s own heart. He was a great man of faith, but I’m not so sure he was a great father. The reading today shows brokenness in his family – but failure to act on...

II Samuel 11, 12, Psalms 32, 51, Mark 14:1-16

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight; so you are right in your verdict and justified when you judge. Psalm 51:4 David has an affair with Bathsheba and kills her husband; Judas betrays Jesus. We deserve whatever God chooses to do. David and Judas may not have...

II Samuel 9,10, 23:8-e, I Chronicles 19, Mark 13:24-e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. Mark 13:31 I read the headlines and realize the fragile nature of our world. All it takes is one crazed gunman entering a school or some natural disaster or a government ruler deciding they want to start a war – and...

I Chronicles 18, II Samuel 22, Psalm 60, Mark 13:1-23

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure. II Samuel 22:3 The strength of David was to see that his success came from God. Others looked and thought David was a great warrior and a great king. David looked and saw the blessing of God. In Mark 13, it is sad that today there are...

2 Samuel 7, 8, 1 Chronicles 17, Mark 12:28-e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I declare to you that the Lord will build a house for you. I Chronicles 17:10 King David wanted to build a temple (house) for God. God’s short answer is that he who had given everything to David did not need for David to build him a house. Then God tells David he will establish a son of...

1 Chronicles 16, Psalms 24, 105, 132, 139, Mark 12:13-27

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. I Chronicles 16:36 Of all that I am grateful for of King David, it is this—his call for us to praise God. I read it here in Chronicles, but so many of the Psalms call for the same. David would say to praise God...
