Thoughts for the Day

Ruth, Romans 16:17-e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

The women living there said, “Naomi has a son!” And they named him Obed. He was the father of Jesse, the father of David. Ruth 4:17 Ruth is a beautiful love story—written by God. In it the widow, Ruth, comes together with Boaz, a relative of her mother-in-law. Both are...

Judges 19-21, Romans 15:22-16:16

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

The God of peace be with you all. Amen. Romans 15:33 This reading from Judges is as sad as the reading from Romans makes me feel good. In Judges family fights against family and then feels the brokenness of that. In Romans Paul speaks of the value of this partnership he wants with the Romans...

Judges 2-3, 17-18, Romans 15:1-21

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Again the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord, and because they did this evil the Lord gave Eglon king of Moab power over Israel. Judges 3:12 It was an ugly cycle seen throughout Judges. People ignored God, did as they pleased and God allowed bad things to happen to them. Then they...

Joshua 23, 24, Judges 1, Romans 14

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

The people said to Joshua, “We will serve the Lord our God and obey him.” Joshua 24:24 It is not enough—it is never enough. We can make commitments to God, which is a good thing, but we can never live up to them. The people vowed to Joshua to serve God, but by Joshua 2 their...

Joshua 20-22, Romans 13

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh. Romans 13:14 God set up clear lines of where and how His people were to live in Joshua. He simplifies at the end of Romans 13. He speaks of loving one’s neighbor (vs.9)...

Joshua 16-19, Romans 12

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:21 I probably should have looked at a Bible atlas to see where the land allotments were for the tribes of Israel, but I don’t think land matters that much. It is this last verse of Romans 12 that strikes me. There is so...

Joshua 12-15, Romans 11:25-e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Who has ever given to God, that God should repay them? Romans 11:35 I liked that God gave Caleb the land He had promised to him—but what God gives is always from grace—not from debt (Joshua 14). I could honor Him with a thousand noble acts—yet I would still be indebted to Him...

Joshua 9-11, Romans 11:1-24

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Who has ever given to God, that God should repay them? Romans 11:35 I know there are some harsh commands God gives in Joshua to kill people. I also know that we all deserve God’s punishment. Rather than judging God for things we don’t understand, I would choose to thank God for the...

Joshua 7-8, Romans 10

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

“How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Romans 10:15 I could write from the reading in Joshua, but it would have to show how God’s people messed up time and again. But even in the middle of all that God still patiently loved them and protected them. So...

Joshua 4-6, Romans 9:18-e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

He said to the Israelites, “In the future when your descendants ask their parents, ‘What do these stones mean?’ tell them, ‘Israel crossed the Jordan on dry ground.’ For the Lord your God dried up the Jordan before you until you had crossed over. Joshua 4:21-24 It...
