Thoughts for the Day

Busted!

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

“Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.” Isaiah 6:5 What happens when God allows you to see Him in all His glory? For the first time in your life you...

Blessed to See

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

                (Read Isaiah 6:1-13 with me this week.)They (the seraphim) were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.” Isaiah 6:3 Isaiah’s vision of heaven was not golden...

Christians & Taxes

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

“What do you think, Simon? From whom do kings of the earth take toll or tax? From their sons or from others?” And when he said, “From others,” Jesus said to him, “Then the sons are free. However, not to give offense . . . Matthew 17:25-27  I don't like to pay...

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...

When God Looks Small

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I also learned that the portions assigned to the Levites had not been given to them, and that all the Levites and musicians responsible for the service had gone back to their own fields. Nehemiah 13:10 Nehemiah was pretty angry when he came back and saw the people ignoring God. I wonder what he...

Honoring God

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

“We will not neglect the house of our God.” Nehemiah 10:39 I remember seeing a church where they had moved some of the chairs in the middle of the seating area. I did not know why until I saw the hole in the roof over that area. Rather than fix the roof, they simply moved some of...

Cannot Get Enough

Day after day, from the first day to the last, Ezra read from the Book of the Law of God. Nehemiah 8:18a  Part of their celebration of the Feast of Tents was the priest reading to them from the Torah, the Bible. I once gave an assignment in a class for new Christians to read a small...

Speak To Us

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

On the first day of the seventh month Ezra the priest brought the Law before the assembly, which was made up of men and women and all who were able to understand. He read it aloud from daybreak till noon as he faced the square before the Water Gate in the presence of the men, women and others...

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...

It is ALL about Jesus

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

It is ALL About Jesus Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father, who sent him. John 6:23 There are many religions in the world today--but only one Jesus. Some say God simply has different faces: some see him as Buddha, others as Allah and others as the God of the Bible. The...
