A Word From Joe Barnett

This site is about words.
First, about God’s authoritative, inspired Word.
Second, about my non-authoritative, non-inspired words—nevertheless, written in hope that they will encourage those who read them, and above all that they will point the reader to God’s Word.

Here are the regular features you will find here.

  • Today’s Walk in the Word. A brief devotional that appears Monday through Friday. Each entry is based on a single verse of Scripture, followed by my comments related to it, and ending with a summary aphorism. To access the latest devotional click on "Today’s Walk in the Word" below. To access previous messages click on "Archives/A Walk in the Word" in the top menu.
  • On My Mind. Messages on varied topics that appear on this site at least once a month. To access the latest entry click on "On My Mind" below. To access previous messages click on "Archives/On My Mind" in the top menu.

Each of these features can also be fed directly to your email box if you wish. Just click here to sign up.

And yes, you are permitted—in fact, encouraged—to pass along any of these messages to those you feel will benefit from them. Just click on the “Forward to a Friend” button. Your participation in this way makes this “our” ministry instead of “my” ministry.

If you find anything here that brings you, or those with whom you share these messages, into a closer relationship with the Lord, I praise God and thank him for permitting our paths to cross.

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you will do so often.

Attitude Control

Get along with each other, and forgive each other.     —Colossians 3:13 “Inside of me,” said grandpa, “a ferocious fight is going on between two dogs.

Thank You for Being You

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.                   —1 Chronicles 16:34 Browsing a Hallmark display for a “Thank You” card, I spotted one with the caption, “Thank You for Being You.” The inside was blank—clean space for the sender’s words. I bought it. There’s a …

God Has Everything (Almost)

Set out a sacrifice I can accept.                      —Psalm 50:14 Is there anything that God doesn’t have? According to Psalm 50, he says: “I do not need bulls from your stalls or goats from your pens, because every animal of the forest is already mine. The …

I stand at the door and knock.               —Revelation 3:20 English artist William Holman Hunt’s painting, The Light of the World, hangs in the side chapel at Keble College, Oxford, England. It depicts Jesus knocking on a cottage door that has no handle. Hunt said he wanted the painting …

Did God Really Say That?

They examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.                           —Acts 17:11 I had twin boy cousins who gave their trusting (gullible?) younger sister a lot of pain. Yes, pain. Coming home from Sunday school, they asked her …
