Thoughts for the Day

Connected in Jesus

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water and Philip baptized him. When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord suddenly took Philip away, and the eunuch did not see him again, but went on his way rejoicing. Acts 8:38-39 It was one brief moment, but it would be...

Honored

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

The apostles left the Sanhedrin, rejoicing because they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the Name. Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Messiah. Acts 5:41-42 I am honored to be...

Refreshing

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord . . . Acts 3:19 It is a word I associate with soft drink or mouthwash ads—refreshing. When I think of forgiveness, my descriptors tend to be: relief, healing or “I...

The Joy of a Friend

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

You will fill me with joy in your presence. Acts 2:28 This seemed to be a big deal to King David whom Peter quoted on Pentecost. Think about it—how important are friends to you? Would you rather have millions of dollars and no friends or be penniless with a very dear friend for life?...

Hope, Always Hope

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

They will not labor in vain, nor will they bear children doomed to misfortune; for they will be a people blessed by the Lord, they and their descendants with them. Isaiah 65:23 In Isaiah 65 God promises new day—a different way of life because of the Savior He would send. It would be a...

Easter Changes Everything

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Be glad and rejoice forever in what I will create, for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight and its people a joy. Isaiah 65:18 What does Easter change? I think it changes two things. 1) Because Jesus lives, death does not have the final word. Jesus gives us life forever with Him--"rejoice...

God's Great Plan

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

(This week read Isaiah 65:17-25 with me.)See, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. Isaiah 65:17 It was a great celebration yesterday. With all of Christendom we celebrate the victory that Jesus won over death—and...

Our Story

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” Isaiah 6:8 Isaiah saw the glory of God, thought he was going to die, had surgery to take his guilt away—now what? Now he wants to tell his...

Merry Christmas!

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” Luke 2:13-14 The angels sang of the birth of Jesus, and the peace he brings. Their song is for...

Rejoice Always!

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Philippians 4:4 How? How is it that God would think we could always rejoice? St. Paul gives hints. He tells us that God is always near us (vs. 5) and that God guards our hearts and minds so no one can steal the peace he gives to us in...
