Thoughts for the Day

Explaining Jesus

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

  At that time Herod the tetrarch heard the reports about Jesus, and he said to his attendants, “This is John the Baptist; he has risen from the dead! That is why miraculous powers are at work in him.” Matthew 14:1-2 Some scoff at the idea of God being born and dying on a...

  Coming to his hometown, he began teaching the people in their synagogue, and they were amazed. “Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers?” they asked. “Isn’t this the carpenter’s son? Matthew 13:54-55a The people got confused. They had...

No Way!

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

   “Have you understood all these things?” Jesus asked. “Yes,” they replied. Matthew 13:51 Jesus told several stories about how the church, the kingdom of heaven works. He speaks of God's people in terms of seed planted, lost treasures and fish in a net. It...

All In!

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

  The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field. Matthew 13:44  Among the Dead Sea Scrolls they found a list of treasures buried around Judea (I am sure to hide from...

God Has This

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

  The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. Matthew 13:41  We love to see those who are guilty get punished. It may be your sister who did you wrong, a co-worker or some "evil" dictator. For some...

Higher Standards for . . .

  One of the sons of Joiada son of Eliashib the high priest was son-in-law to Sanballat the Horonite. And I drove him away from me.  Remember them, my God, because they defiled the priestly office and the covenant of the priesthood and of the Levites. Nehemiah 13:28-29  Nehemiah...

The Sabbath

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

  In those days I saw people in Judah treading winepresses on the Sabbath and bringing in grain and loading it on donkeys, together with wine, grapes, figs and all other kinds of loads. And they were bringing all this into Jerusalem on the Sabbath. Therefore I warned them against selling...

Reporting in, God

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Remember me for this, my God, and do not blot out what I have so faithfully done for the house of my God and its services. Nehemiah 13:14  In the middle of a situation where people had lost sight of God, Nehemiah had to be firm. He had to get tough with people (see vs.25) when I think he...

When God Looks Small

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I also learned that the portions assigned to the Levites had not been given to them, and that all the Levites and musicians responsible for the service had gone back to their own fields. Nehemiah 13:10 Nehemiah was pretty angry when he came back and saw the people ignoring God. I wonder what he...
