Thoughts for the Day

Short Lived Courage

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Simon Peter was still standing there warming himself. So they asked him, “You aren’t one of his disciples too, are you?” He denied it, saying, “I am not.” John 18:25   Peter had vowed to defend Jesus several hours earlier. He had pulled out his dagger at...

Good Intentions

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it and struck the high priest’s servant, cutting off his right ear. John 18:10 Peter meant well, but he did not understand. He reacted from feeling and not from faith. He was trying to protect Jesus when he needed to trust Jesus to save him. Good...

Jesus Gave Himself

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Jesus answered, “I told you that I am he. If you are looking for me, then let these men go.” John 18:8  Most people run or hide when someone comes to arrest them; Jesus went to meet them. He knew exactly what was going on. When they told him they were looking for Jesus of...

Jesus Conducts the Orchestra

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Jesus told him, “What you are about to do, do quickly.” John 13:27  Jesus dipped the bread in the sauce and gave it to Judas--then looked him in the eye and told him to go. He wasn't surprised at Judas' betrayal. He let it happen because it needed to happen for Jesus to save...

The Mark of a Christian

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:34-35 It was a strange edict. Jesus followers had been with him for three years studying what life...

Knowing the One You Worship

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. John 13:12 I doubt that the disciples understood why Jesus had washed their feet. There is so much about him we do not understand...

Because He Could

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples&rsquo...

He Loved Them

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. John 13:1 Jesus knew what was going to happen the next day. He was orchestrating his own death, but...

Don't Blame Jesus

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world. John 12:47  Many make Jesus to be divisive. In the name of Jesus they point out this group of people going to hell or that group. It is tempting to think that if this or that person would change their ways they could be a Christian...

Drawn to the Cross

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself. John 12:32 There is something about the cross, the death of Jesus, that draws people in. As crazy as it sounds as the source of life, the sacrificial death of Jesus is like a magnet. Perhaps it begins with the question...
