Thoughts for the Day

Jesus is Bigger than this World

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written. John 21:25 I began reading the Gospel of John in November. As I read this final verse, I wonder what else Jesus did. John's...

Amazing Grace

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

The third time he (Jesus) said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” John 21:7 Three times Simon Peter had denied knowing Jesus; three times Jesus asks him if he loves him. Jesus never mentions the night of his arrest (and Peter's failure), but asking the question three times...

The Elephant in the Room

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.” John 21:15  It was the first time we see a...

Jesus Provides All

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” John 21:12 How many times have we seen Jesus take on roles that don't seem to fit. He came to save us by dying on the cross and yet here he causes them to catch 153 large fish (vs.11) then has breakfast ready for them when they come to...

Two Things You Need

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

(Jesus) said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish. John 21:6 If Jesus is sending out his disciples for ministry in John 20, he is preparing them to go in chapter...

Peace to You

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” John 20:19 I think "Peace" is still God's first word to you. Jesus appears to the...

Doubting Thomas

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

He said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.” Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!” John 20:27-28  For 2000 years Thomas has been criticized for doubting Jesus' resurrection, all...

All Business

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” John 20:21 Three times in John 20 Jesus shows himself alive to those who love him and each time he speaks of sending them so that others might believe. His followers were just happy that Jesus was not...

My Easter

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Mary Magdalene went to the disciples with the news: “I have seen the Lord!” John 20:18  It must have been something for Mary, who had watched Jesus die on the cross, to see him that first Easter morning—alive! Can you imagine her excitement? I think you can. You see...

Easter Surprise

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. 2 So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the...
