Thoughts for the Day

Listening to God?

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

(This week I am reading Acts 13:1-26.) While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” Acts 13:2 It was quite a journey that we have read of for Barnabas and Saul, but now it gets...

God’s Story In Your Life

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Peter motioned with his hand for them to be quiet and described how the Lord had brought him out of prison. “Tell James and the other brothers and sisters about this,” he said, and then he left for another place. Acts 12:17 It was a great story that Peter had to tell. He shared it...

God's Hand

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

God’s Hand Peter followed him out of the prison, but he had no idea that what the angel was doing was really happening; he thought he was seeing a vision. They passed the first and second guards and came to the iron gate leading to the city. It opened for them by itself, and they went...

Peace in the Middle of the Storm

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Peace In the Middle of the Storm An angel of the Lord appeared and a light shone in the cell. He struck Peter on the side and woke him up. “Quick, get up!” he said, and the chains fell off Peter’s wrists. Acts 12:7 People in Hawaii are in a panic. The storm is approaching. I...

Real Fear

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Real Fear After arresting him (Peter), he (Herod) put him in prison, handing him over to be guarded by four squads of four soldiers each. Acts 12:4 I have been afraid many times though God says we don’t need to be afraid. In this situation Herod was afraid—and rightly so. He was...

Christian Bashing

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

He (King Herod) had James, the brother of John, put to death with the sword. When he saw that this met with approval among the Jews, he proceeded to seize Peter also. Acts 12:2-3 It is popular to bash Christians in some circles today. Don’t worry—this is nothing new. When Herod had...

We Are Family—We Christians

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Agabus, stood up and through the Spirit predicted that a severe famine would spread over the entire Roman world. (This happened during the reign of Claudius.) The disciples, as each one was able, decided to provide help for the brothers and sisters living in Judea. Acts 11:28-29 We can...

God, You Are Amazing!

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Then Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul, and when he found him, he brought him to Antioch. So for a whole year Barnabas and Saul met with the church and taught great numbers of people. The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch. Acts 11:25-2 It was different when Gentiles first...

Got Lemons? Make Lemonade!

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Now those who had been scattered by the persecution that broke out when Stephen was killed traveled as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus and Antioch, spreading the word only among Jews. Acts 11:19 I find this to be a fascinating verse. I don’t know if those involved saw it as blessing, but we have...

Get Out of God’s Way

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

So if God gave them the same gift he gave us who believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I to think that I could stand in God’s way? Acts 11:17 Sometimes I forget that God is hard at work around me to bring hope and meaning to the lives of people. That is foolish. God is always at work...
