Thoughts for the Day

God's Powerful Spirit

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

“Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” They answered, “No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.” Acts 19:2 2000 years later I pray we know the Holy Spirit and that He works powerfully among us. Many speak of miracles or tongues when the Holy...

Need Some More Shalom

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

After spending some time there, they were sent off by the believers with the blessing of peace to return to those who had sent them. Acts 15:33 Shalom was the traditional greeting and their way of saying “good-bye” as well for the Jewish people. Yet, it was more than that...

An Encouraging Word

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

So the men were sent off and went down to Antioch, where they gathered the church together and delivered the letter. The people read it and were glad for its encouraging message. Acts 15:30-31 Antioch was the first church established outside of Jerusalem and the first church to actively engage...

Uh-Oh, There are Problems

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

In those days when the number of disciples was increasing, the Hellenistic Jews among them complained against the Hebraic Jews because their widows were being overlooked in the daily distribution of food. Acts 6:1 It is foolish to think the early church had no problems. There are problems in...

Dangerous Threat to the Church

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Warn a divisive person once, and then warn them a second time. After that, have nothing to do with them. Titus 3:10 We have heard of the evils of immorality, laziness and drinking too much, but the New Testament probably speaks more strongly on this one sin more than all the others...

Bottom Line Expectations

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

(This week I invite you to read Philippians 2:1-13 daily with me.)If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same...

Strange Sign for Success

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

. . . striving together as one for the faith of the gospel without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved—and that by God. Philippians 1:27b-28 Christians are not to look to suffer, but St. Paul...

To Be One Takes All of us

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:1-3 (This Sunday our...

Think WE not ME

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Matthew 18:21 Peter had a lot to learn. Jesus had just taught them about forgiveness and Peter’s first question shows he did not understand. It...
