Thoughts for the Day

Better Than You Can Imagine

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

  I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. Philippians 3:8 Have you ever thought about this phrase, “the surpassing worth of knowing Christ?” St. Paul had the sense that for all he...

All In?

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead. Philippians 3:10-11 I have a smart phone. I don’t know how smart it is because beyond...

Looking Good--Inside Out

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I consider them (education, status, assets) garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ . . . Philippians 3:8-9 St. Paul had it all—wealth, status, education, power. When he...

Know What Makes You Rich

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. Philippians 3:7 St. Paul was a man who had things going for him. He had been wealthy. He was educated. He had influence. If there were a bragging contest—he had as good a shot at winning it as anyone. Yet, when Jesus...

Simple Christmas List

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Further, my brothers and sisters, rejoice in the Lord! Philippians 3:1(Read Phi. 3:1-11 with me this week. Read it and reflect.) Have you made your Christmas list? St. Paul did and it had one item—Jesus. In this verse he reminds us that we already have Jesus—so rejoice. Nothing else...

Honor Those Who Serve

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Welcome him (Epaphroditus) in the Lord with great joy, and honor people like him, because he almost died for the work of Christ. Philippians 2:29-30 Something happened with 9/11, that caused our nation to wake up and realize the honor owed our police officers and fire fighters. Think about...

We Are Soldiers

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I think it is necessary to send back to you Epaphroditus, my brother, co-worker and fellow soldier, who is also your messenger, whom you sent to take care of my needs. Philippians 2:25 We Christians are soldiers. It is a fact that we dare not shy away from. And this is not something of our own...

Be That Person

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon, that I also may be cheered when I receive news about you. I have no one else like him, who will show genuine concern for your welfare. Philippians 2:20-21 St. Paul ran into the same problem we have today—everyone is so wrapped up in...

What Makes Us Shine?

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. Philippians 2:15-16 We should be nice to people. Others will take notice of politeness and generosity. Yet the mark of faith as Paul lays it out is that we “shine” when we “hold firmly to the word...

Be the Sermon

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars . . . Philippians 2:14-15 (I am reading the last half of Philippians 2 this week. Join...
