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...

A Deeper Joy

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:2 It is common to begin a letter writing, “Dear” so and so. In Paul’s world it was common for Gentiles to say, “Joy to you . . .” and Jewish letters to begin with, “Peace to...

Big Deal

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

When the men of that place recognized Jesus, they sent word to all the surrounding country. People brought all their sick to him and begged him to let the sick just touch the edge of his cloak, and all who touched it were healed. Matthew 14:35-36  Jesus always seemed to draw a crowd...

What if I Do Step Out?

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Matthew 14:28-29  I can only imagine how much Jesus wanted to step out on the water and marvel at what Jesus could do. I think he wanted to see the...

I Didn't Step Out

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” Matthew 14:28 Why is Peter the only one who walked on the water? Because he is the only one who stepped out of the  boat. How many of the other disciples thought in the morning...
