Thoughts for the Day

Not Always Successful

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

He witnessed to them from morning till evening, explaining about the kingdom of God, and from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets he tried to persuade them about Jesus. Some were convinced by what he said, but others would not believe. Acts 28:23-24 The end of the Book of Acts is a bit sad...

Jewish Hope?

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

It is because of the hope of Israel that I am bound with this chain. Acts 28:20 Today, the Christian and Jewish faiths are seen to be miles apart. At the very birth of Christianity they were the same. The hope of the Jewish faith was for God to send the Messiah. Paul’s ministry was to say...

Balancing Act of Faith

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

The rest of the sick on the island came and were cured. They honored us in many ways; and when we were ready to sail, they furnished us with the supplies we needed. Acts 28:9-10 I read this and sometimes am jealous of Paul for the powerful ways he lived. Then I remember how much time he spent...

Christmas Reality

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

There was an estate nearby that belonged to Publius, the chief official of the island. He welcomed us to his home and showed us generous hospitality for three days. His father was sick in bed, suffering from fever and dysentery. Paul went in to see him and, after prayer, placed his hands on him...

The Christmas Difference

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

  Paul gathered a pile of brushwood and, as he put it on the fire, a viper, driven out by the heat, fastened itself on his hand. When the islanders saw the snake hanging from his hand, they said to each other, “This man must be a murderer; for though he escaped from the sea, the...

You Can Trust Jesus

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I urge you to take some food. You need it to survive. Not one of you will lose a single hair from his head.” After he said this, he took some bread and gave thanks to God in front of them all. Then he broke it and began to eat. Acts 27:34-35 Someone shared with me their struggle with...

When God Speaks

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Last night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve stood beside me and said, ‘Do not be afraid, Paul. You must stand trial before Caesar; and God has graciously given you the lives of all who sail with you.’ So keep up your courage, men, for I have faith in God that it...

When We Lose Hope, God . . .

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

When neither sun nor stars appeared for many days and the storm continued raging, we finally gave up all hope of being saved. Acts 27:20 In this account of Paul’s being on a ship in a nasty storm, the writer uses the term, ‘we.’ St. Luke, the writer of Acts, was on board. By...

Right Without Being Self-righteous

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Paul warned them, “Men, I can see that our voyage is going to be disastrous and bring great loss to ship and cargo, and to our own lives also.” But the centurion, instead of listening to what Paul said, followed the advice of the pilot and of the owner of the ship. Acts 27:10-11...

No Different--Totally Different

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

When it was decided that we would sail for Italy, Paul and some other prisoners were handed over to a centurion named Julius, who belonged to the Imperial Regiment. Acts 27:1 Paul was being taken by ship from Palestine to Rome. He was one of several prisoners, just one of the 276 people on...
