Thoughts for the Day

Deuteronomy 5-7, Romans 4:16-e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

The Lord our God made a covenant with us at Horeb. It was not with our ancestors that the Lord made this covenant, but with us, with all of us who are alive here today. Deuteronomy 5:2-3 This is one Hebrew lesson I remember—the translation of this passage. In 40 years of living in the...

Numbers 28-31, Romans 2:17-3:8

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

“Have you allowed all the women to live?” he asked them. “They were the ones who followed Balaam’s advice and enticed the Israelites to be unfaithful to the Lord. . .” Numbers 31:15-16 Sometimes I gloss over those things I don’t understand, but that is not...

Exodus 22-24, John 12:1-11

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

To the Israelites the glory of the Lord looked like a consuming fire on top of the mountain. Exodus 24:17 It is interesting to read all the things God tells the people to do in Exodus 22 and 23 only to see how Jesus came to pay the price for our failure to be obedient. We struggle to understand...

Exodus 2-5, John 9:24-e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

God said to Moses, “I am who I am." Exodus 3:14 There are many who do not believe in God, yet He is. In this reading God was rejected by the Egyptian leader and (in John) by church leaders, still He is God. That is why I love the name He gives Moses to use for Him, Yahweh (I am the I am)...

genesis 31-33, John 7:25-36

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Jacob replied, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.” Genesis 32:27 It was a bizarre scene. Jacob wrestled with God and there was no way he could trick God and win. He had tricked his brother, his father and his uncle—but in wrestling with God, all he could do was hang...

When We Lose Hope, God . . .

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

When neither sun nor stars appeared for many days and the storm continued raging, we finally gave up all hope of being saved. Acts 27:20 In this account of Paul’s being on a ship in a nasty storm, the writer uses the term, ‘we.’ St. Luke, the writer of Acts, was on board. By...

Invisible Thank You List

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

When the son of Paul’s sister heard of this plot, he went into the barracks and told Paul. Acts 23:16 There was a large group of people plotting to ambush Paul on the way to his court hearing. They really wanted to kill him. Why did they fail? Because God put Paul’s nephew in the...

We All Want One

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said: “People of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious. For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: to an unknown god. Acts 17:22-23 I...

Fickle Popularity

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Then some Jews came from Antioch and Iconium and won the crowd over. They stoned Paul and dragged him outside the city, thinking he was dead. Acts 14:19 In a matter of hours the crowd went from worshipping Paul and Barnabas to stoning them. Why? All because a group of people from the church in...

Christian Bashing

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

He (King Herod) had James, the brother of John, put to death with the sword. When he saw that this met with approval among the Jews, he proceeded to seize Peter also. Acts 12:2-3 It is popular to bash Christians in some circles today. Don’t worry—this is nothing new. When Herod had...
