Thoughts for the Day

The Fear of Change

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Paul devoted himself exclusively to preaching, testifying to the Jews that Jesus was the Messiah. Acts 18:4 Why did the Jewish establishment reject Jesus? Acts 18 gives attention to this issue. It is my belief that the issue was fear of change more than it was any theological or philosophical...

Don't Quit

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

As soon as it was night, the believers sent Paul and Silas away to Berea. On arriving there, they went to the Jewish synagogue. Acts 17:10 If you are reading Acts 17 with me, you read that Paul was snuck out of Thessalonica because the mob there wanted to beat him up and arrest him. His crime?...

Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said: “People of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious. For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: to an unknown god. Acts 17:22-23 I...

As was his custom, Paul went into the synagogue, and on three Sabbath days he reasoned with them from the Scriptures, explaining and proving that the Messiah had to suffer and rise from the dead. “This Jesus I am proclaiming to you is the Messiah,” he said. Acts 17, 2-3 He went to...

After Paul and Silas came out of the prison, they went to Lydia’s house, where they met with the brothers and sisters and encouraged them. Then they left. Acts 16:40 It had been a “tough day at the office” for Paul and Silas. They had been arrested, flogged, and imprisoned...

What Freedom Means

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose. The jailer woke up, and when he saw the prison doors open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself because he...

Praise God, Even When . . .

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

After they had been severely flogged, they were thrown into prison. . . . About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. Acts 16:23, 25 I’m not sure how I would have responded to a “severe flogging.” I...

Could They Charge Me?

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

They brought them before the magistrates and said, “These men are Jews, and are throwing our city into an uproar by advocating customs unlawful for us Romans to accept or practice.” Acts 16:20-21 Paul and Silas were charged with starting a riot. They didn’t, but they did get...
