Thoughts for the Day

No Different--Totally Different

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

When it was decided that we would sail for Italy, Paul and some other prisoners were handed over to a centurion named Julius, who belonged to the Imperial Regiment. Acts 27:1 Paul was being taken by ship from Palestine to Rome. He was one of several prisoners, just one of the 276 people on...

Not Bad Stuff

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I am sending you to them to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’ Acts 26:18 These words are what Paul recalls of God’s charge...

Faith Always By Personal Invitation

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I heard a voice saying to me in Aramaic, ‘Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? . . .’ Then I asked, ‘Who are you, Lord?’ Acts 26:14-15 I tend to forget—faith is not a logical thing. Oh, I believe that God is a logical God, but none of us comes to faith because we...

Why Jesus?

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Why should any of you consider it incredible that God raises the dead? Acts 26:8 Why should anyone think of putting their hopes in Jesus? He lived and died 2000 years ago. The logical answer is simple—the empty tomb. It was Paul’s defense for his faith. His life had turned around...

Character Counts!

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

They have known me for a long time and can testify, if they are willing, that I conformed to the strictest sect of our religion, living as a Pharisee. Acts 26:5 Paul is making his defense and begins with his character. He invites those accusing him to look at his life. He offers that as...

Tell Your Story--Which is Really His

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Agrippa said to Paul, “You have permission to speak for yourself.” Acts 26:1 If someone you had never met before asked you to tell them your story, what would you say? Paul chose to tell how God had changed his life. He did so with the prayer that by telling the story God would...

People Are Interested in Jesus

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Agrippa said to Festus, “I would like to hear this man myself.” Acts 25:22 When some say that church is boring, it is easy to think they mean that Jesus is boring. The world may not want to hear about worship times or voter’s meetings, but people are fascinated by Jesus. The...

What Are You Guilty Of?

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I have nothing definite to write to His Majesty about him. Therefore I have brought him before all of you, and especially before you, King Agrippa, so that as a result of this investigation I may have something to write. Acts 25:26 Like Jesus, the Roman officials heard the charges the Jewish...

The One Who Died--LIVES!

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

They had some points of dispute with him about their own religion and about a dead man named Jesus who Paul claimed was alive. Acts 25:19 When I talk about Jesus, what is it that strikes those who have never heard of him? What is there about Jesus that I might take for granted but would blow...

WE CAN Have Ulterior Motives

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I appeal to Caesar! Acts 25:11 We Christians are called to speak the truth, but we can have ulterior motives. Paul was on trial. To avoid going back to Jerusalem and those who wanted to kill him, he appealed to the supreme court of that day—the Roman emperor, Caesar. Was it to avoid the...
