Thoughts for the Day

Psalm 78 and 106, Romans 8:31-e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

They remembered that God was their Rock, that God Most High was their Redeemer. But then they would flatter him with their mouths, lying to him with their tongues; their hearts were not loyal to him, they were not faithful to his covenant. Yet he was merciful; he forgave their iniquities and did...

Deuteronomy 16-19, Romans 6:1-14

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

You must purge the evil from among you. Deuteronomy 17:7 We do not worship a god of grey; He is very black and white. If there was evil, He established the means to get rid of it—even if that meant death. God understands that accidents happen which is why he established cities of refuge...

Numbers 25-27, Romans 2:1-16

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things. Now we know that God’s judgment against those who do such things is based on truth. Romans...

Leviticus 16-18, John 16:16-e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

He is to lay both hands on the head of the live goat and confess over it all the wickedness and rebellion of the Israelites—all their sins—and put them on the goat’s head. Leviticus 16:21 The goat in this verse is the scapegoat. This, usually negative term, originates here and...

Leviticus 11-13, John 15:12-e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I am the Lord your God; consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am holy. Do not make yourselves unclean by any creature that moves along the ground. Leviticus 11:44 Clean or unclean—God does not leave much wiggle room. It seems to me one would always have to wonder which they were...

Genesis 37-39, John 7:53-8:11

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Now Israel loved Joseph more than any of his other sons. Genesis 37:3 We speak of heroes of the faith—there are none but one, Jesus. Israel (Jacob) put one son above all the others. Joseph was smug, Judah and his sons were downright bad, The good news is that Jesus came to heal those of...

Genesis 14-17, JOhn 6:1-21

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

She (Hagar) gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me.” Genesis 16:13 Ever feel utterly alone—that no one knows what you are going through or how you feel--the world goes on all around you and no one notices your pain? Hagar felt that. She was a...

Job 25-29, JOhn 4:27-45

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

I will maintain my innocence and never let go of it; my conscience will not reproach me as long as I live. Job 27:6 Job honored God and His wisdom throughout all the talk of why he was made to suffer so. Yet, it is in this verse that he is flawed. He maintained his own innocence. The bottom...

Jewish Hope?

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

It is because of the hope of Israel that I am bound with this chain. Acts 28:20 Today, the Christian and Jewish faiths are seen to be miles apart. At the very birth of Christianity they were the same. The hope of the Jewish faith was for God to send the Messiah. Paul’s ministry was to say...

We Apologize

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

We have heard that some went out from us without our authorization and disturbed you, troubling your minds by what they said. Acts 15:24 Some men from the BIG church had hurt and confused those in the mission congregation in Antioch. This letter was meant to be an apology for what those men had...
