Thoughts for the Day

Yell in Love?

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Yell in Love? Rebuke them sharply, so that they will be sound in the faith. Titus 1:13 I tend to think of rebuking/disciplining/yelling at someone when I am angry with them. If I rebuke "sharply" it is probably because I am REALLY angry with them. St. Paul calls for me to rebuke people to help...

The Perfect Gift

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Matthew 2:11 We have too much, yet the Christmas tree had dozens of gifts under it. The first...

Why? -- 9th Day of Christmas

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

When the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship. Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.&rdquo...

Top That, Santa!

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Top That, Santa! And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 This is a season of lists, correct. Children are to make a list of the toys they would like to see from Santa. For those whose list is a mile there usually is some talk...

Be Like Jesus

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

In humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus . . . Philippians 2:3-5 Even when we do nice things for others—we are tempted to think...

My First Step

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Philippians 1:27 How am I to live a life worthy of the gospel? What is my first step? My mind first goes to the 10 Commandments and things I can change to be a better person, but Jesus would have my first thought...

Love is More Than a Feeling

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

    (Join me reading Phil. 1:1-18 this week.)This is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that...

Faith is a Changed Heart

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

In anger his master handed him over to the jailers to be tortured, until he should pay back all he owed. “This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother or sister from your heart.” Matthew 18:34-35 Your heart is the barometer of God’s...

A Different Approach

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

If they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector. Matthew 18:17 This passage has often been used to teach that if people won’t face up to their own sin we should shun them—kick them out of the church. Perhaps Jesus meant something...

Greatest -- Greatest Need

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:4 We typically think of greatness as something achieved as the disciples did. Celebrities, scientists, the “smartest one in my class” are great. Jesus looks at greatness from the...
