Thoughts for the Day

The One Who Died--LIVES!

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

They had some points of dispute with him about their own religion and about a dead man named Jesus who Paul claimed was alive. Acts 25:19 When I talk about Jesus, what is it that strikes those who have never heard of him? What is there about Jesus that I might take for granted but would blow...

I Don't Need to be in Charge

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

They requested Festus, as a favor to them, to have Paul transferred to Jerusalem, for they were preparing an ambush to kill him along the way. Acts 25:3 The leaders from Jerusalem wanted Paul dead. I don’t think they cared how it happened, so they tried to manipulate people to get to...

In God's Hands

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

The following night the Lord stood near Paul and said, “Take courage! As you have testified about me in Jerusalem, so you must also testify in Rome.” Acts 23:11 No one knew what was going to happen. One group wanted to kill Paul the government rulers had no idea what to do with him...
