Thoughts for the Day

Exodus 12-14, John 11:1-27

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

On that day tell your son, ‘I do this because of what the Lord did for me when I came out of Egypt.’ Exodus 13:8 The Passover was a festival filled with rules. God told them when to celebrate it, how to celebrate it and who would be invited. Sometimes we think God is a bit harsh...

Exodus 9-11, John 10:22-e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart and the hearts of his officials so that I may perform these signs of mine among them that you may tell your children and grandchildren how I dealt harshly with the Egyptians and how I performed my signs among them...

Exodus 6-8, John 10:1-21

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Moses said to the Lord, “Since I speak with faltering lips, why would Pharaoh listen to me?” Exodus 6:30 Moses was scared to step up and lead God’s people. Twice in this chapter he gives his same old excuse about his speech problem. How many excuses have I used in my life to...

Exodus 2-5, John 9:24-e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

God said to Moses, “I am who I am." Exodus 3:14 There are many who do not believe in God, yet He is. In this reading God was rejected by the Egyptian leader and (in John) by church leaders, still He is God. That is why I love the name He gives Moses to use for Him, Yahweh (I am the I am)...

We Did It!

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. John 10:27-28 In our quest to read the Bible in one year I finished January’s readings one day early! This is a free day. I thought...

Genesis 49-50, Exodus 1, John 9:1-23

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

As he (Jesus) went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be...

Genesis 46-48, John 8:48-e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Israel said, “Bring them to me so I may bless them.” Genesis 48:9 I don’t understand all the significance of giving blessing in the Old Testament. In this reading Joseph's dad blesses Pharaoh and then Joseph’s two sons. And why he purposely gives the greater blessing to...

Genesis 43-45, John 8:31-47

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

God sent me ahead of you to preserve for you a remnant on earth and to save your lives by a great deliverance. Genesis 45:7 Joseph realized that God’s hand was behind all of it—the dreams, being sold into slavery, being unjustly tossed into prison---all so he could provide food for...

Genesis 40-42, John 8:12-30

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

They said to one another, “Surely we are being punished because of our brother. Genesis 42:21 Joseph had been put through hell because of the hatred of his brothers—selling him as a slave, but the brothers had their own hell to live as well. Guilt is a terrible thing to live with...

Genesis 37-39, John 7:53-8:11

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Now Israel loved Joseph more than any of his other sons. Genesis 37:3 We speak of heroes of the faith—there are none but one, Jesus. Israel (Jacob) put one son above all the others. Joseph was smug, Judah and his sons were downright bad, The good news is that Jesus came to heal those of...
