Thoughts for the Day

We Are Different

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our...

Learn This Well

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

You, however, must teach what is appropriate to sound doctrine. Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance. Titus 2:1-2 I have learned a lot of things about God, about theology and what is important. What I have learned...

Sorting the Voices

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

There are many rebellious people, full of meaningless talk and deception . . . Titus 1:10 I grew up with Walter Cronkite telling me the world news every night. Now there are so many places and voices telling me what is going on in the world. I can scan facebook this morning to see who is...

Yell in Love?

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Yell in Love? Rebuke them sharply, so that they will be sound in the faith. Titus 1:13 I tend to think of rebuking/disciplining/yelling at someone when I am angry with them. If I rebuke "sharply" it is probably because I am REALLY angry with them. St. Paul calls for me to rebuke people to help...

Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ to further the faith of God’s elect and their knowledge of the truth that leads to godliness. Titus 1:1 What we believe as Christians is more than some philosophy. We are not to be known for what we teach and confess but how we live...

Not Alone

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

The Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14 Ahaz was king of Judah when Jerusalem was attacked by foreign armies. God assured him things would be alright—Ahaz was still scared. God told him to ask for a...

The Perfect Gift

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Matthew 2:11 We have too much, yet the Christmas tree had dozens of gifts under it. The first...

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” Matthew 2:1-2 The magi were hopeful, but I am...
