Thoughts for the Day

Pathetic or Strong?

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Pilate took Jesus and had him flogged. The soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head. They clothed him in a purple robe and went up to him again and again, saying, “Hail, king of the Jews!” And they slapped him in the face. John 19:1-3  Pilate saw Jesus...

“You are a king, then!” said Pilate. Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”   “What is truth?” retorted Pilate. John...

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Then the Jewish leaders took Jesus from Caiaphas to the palace of the Roman governor. By now it was early morning, and to avoid ceremonial uncleanness they did not enter the palace, because they wanted to be able to eat the Passover. John 18:28  The Jewish leaders had conducted an illegal...

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...

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

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...
