Thoughts for the Day

Deuteronomy 24-27, Romans 7:1-12

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

“Cursed is anyone who does not uphold the words of this law by carrying them out.” Then all the people shall say, “Amen!” Deuteronomy 27:26 By dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the...

When you go to war against your enemies and see horses and chariots and an army greater than yours, do not be afraid of them, because the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt, will be with you. Deuteronomy 20:1 Where God promises victory—you can know that it is yours. Therefore...

Deuteronomy 8-11, Romans 5:1-11

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

You are to love those who are foreigners, for you yourselves were foreigners in Egypt. Fear the Lord your God and serve him. Hold fast to him and take your oaths in his name. He is the one you praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own...

Deuteronomy 1-4:40, Romans 4:16-e

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

What other nation is so great as to have their gods near them the way the Lord our God is near us whenever we pray to him? And what other nation is so great as to have such righteous decrees and laws as this body of laws I am setting before you today? Deuteronomy 4:7-8 In reviewing their...

Numbers 32-34, Romans 3:9-20

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

No one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin. Romans 3:20 Was it an exercise in futility? In the readings from Numbers we see all the things the people had to do in obedience to God—but in Romans 3...

Leviticus 25-26, John 18:1-18

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Follow my decrees and be careful to obey my laws, and you will live safely in the land. Leviticus 25:18 It was a call to trust God, not some deal to pay them back for obedience. God laid out plans for them not to plant crops every seven years. Growing up on a farm I know the importance of...

Genesis 4-7, John 1:19-34

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out. Genesis 6:14 Noah obeyed God when told to build a big boat. That obedience provided safety from the flood. It saved his life—and the lives of his family, as the flood waters killed off a sinful...

Listening to God?

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

(This week I am reading Acts 13:1-26.) While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” Acts 13:2 It was quite a journey that we have read of for Barnabas and Saul, but now it gets...

Be a Good Person

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and always to be gentle toward everyone. Titus 3:1-2 Want to live your faith today—then be a good person. Obey those in...

Just Try Harder?

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

All these now join their fellow Israelites the nobles, and bind themselves with a curse and an oath to follow the Law of God given through Moses the servant of God and to obey carefully all the commands, regulations and decrees of the Lord our Lord. Nehemiah 10:29  It makes sense, but I...
