Thoughts for the Day

Thank You

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I can do all this through him who gives me strength. Yet it was good of you to share in my troubles. Philippians 4:13-14 An older gentleman once told me, “Pastor, I pray for you every night.” I treasured those words. He has long since died, but I still smile to think that he cared...

Rejoice Always!

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Philippians 4:4 How? How is it that God would think we could always rejoice? St. Paul gives hints. He tells us that God is always near us (vs. 5) and that God guards our hearts and minds so no one can steal the peace he gives to us in...

I Belong!

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body. Philippians 3:20-21 The people of Philippi...

A Sad Reality and the Greater Truth

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

As I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is set on earthly things. Philippians 3:18-19 What happens if you choose...

Who is Your Role Model

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Join together in following my example, brothers and sisters, and just as you have us as a model, keep your eyes on those who live as we do. Philippians 3:17 We all copy someone. We are all influenced by some cultural model. The people of Philippi wanted to be seen as Romans so they imitated...

God Chose Me!

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Philippians 3:12b There is a point St. Paul makes about doing my best to find out what God wants from me, but there is another wonderful truth in this—God chose ME to be part of his team! Jesus “took hold of...

Purpose

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Philippians 3:12 It is said that God has a unique purpose for each of us. He has a plan to touch other peoples’ lives through you and...

Better Than You Can Imagine

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

  I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. Philippians 3:8 Have you ever thought about this phrase, “the surpassing worth of knowing Christ?” St. Paul had the sense that for all he...

All In?

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead. Philippians 3:10-11 I have a smart phone. I don’t know how smart it is because beyond...

Looking Good--Inside Out

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I consider them (education, status, assets) garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ . . . Philippians 3:8-9 St. Paul had it all—wealth, status, education, power. When he...
