How Could He?

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

What made you think of doing such a thing? You have not lied just to human beings but to God.” When Ananias heard this, he fell down and died. And great fear seized all who heard what had happened. Acts 5:4-5 This is one of those times when people question God. Sure, Ananias and his wife...

Why Lie?

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Now a man named Ananias, together with his wife Sapphira, also sold a piece of property. With his wife’s full knowledge he kept back part of the money for himself, but brought the rest and put it at the apostles’ feet. Acts 5:1-2 Ananias and his wife did a good thing, they sold some...

Your Nickname?

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Joseph, a Levite from Cyprus, whom the apostles called Barnabas (which means “son of encouragement”), sold a field he owned and brought the money and put it at the apostles’ feet. Acts 4:36-37 Was it a nickname, Barnabas? If so, how did they come up with it? We are introduced...

Powerful Grace

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all that there were no needy persons among them. Acts 4:33-34 It is a different measuring tool for grace. I have been part of the church my whole life and people measure successful ministry by numbers of people worshipping or financial...

Got Your Back

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. Acts 4:32 Almost every day I deal with conflict. People angry with others—what they did wrong or how they mistreated one another. We live in a...

Higher Power

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. Acts 4:29 The high court had released Peter and John with the warning not to speak any more of Jesus or there would be trouble. So they gathered with fellow Christians and prayed for boldness to speak...

Your Story

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Your Story We cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard. Acts 4:20 Peter and John had an amazing story to tell. They had just confronted a man in his 40’s who had never walked, and now the guy was doing gymnastics. But that was not their story. We are told they could not...

Why Does God Scare Us?

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Why Does God Scare Us? After further threats they let them go. They could not decide how to punish them, because all the people were praising God for what had happened. Acts 4:21 A man had been healed. People in the city were excited, yet the leaders felt compelled to arrest Peter and John...
