Thoughts for the Day

Keep Learning

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Read This Sign

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

  A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah. Matthew 16:4  Jesus was insulted because people wanted him to prove himself to them. I wonder how I would feel if someone asked me to prove I am a pastor. Such a request is made...

Lousy Spiritual Forecasters

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

  You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times. Matthew 16:3   Jesus acknowledged that they could tell when it was going to rain, but then he said they were terrible at being able to see what God was doing among them. I am...

Be Careful

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

  The Pharisees and Sadducees came to Jesus and tested him by asking him to show them a sign from heaven. Matthew 16:1   I am all for asking God to give signs, but those signs should be to ease my weak mind about directions God would have me to take. (e.g. Show me a sign that I...

  Great crowds came to him, bringing the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute and many others, and laid them at his feet; and he healed them. The people were amazed . . . Matthew 15:30-31a  It must have been something—the crowds bringing all those who were hurting to Jesus...

Great Faith

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

  Jesus said to her, “Woman, you have great faith!"  Matthew 15:28   Jesus told the Canaanite woman she had a GREAT faith. What made her faith so great? I think there are two things. 1) She believed Jesus had the power to do whatever he wanted. 2) She knew she had no...

Silence

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

August 21, 2017 Silence   Jesus did not answer a word.  Matthew 15:23   The woman had come to him with an urgent plea for her daughter. She was desperate and Jesus’ response to her plea was silence. Do you know that silence? Have there been times when you prayed and...
