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.

Altogether Now

How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity.                 —Psalm 133:1 Some wag described heaven as a place where “there will be five thousand sopranos, five thousand altos, five thousand tenors—and I’ll do the bass.” I don’t know what heaven will be like, except …

Be the Reason

Set them an example by doing what is good.                                            —Titus 2:7 When nineteenth-century preacher Phillips Brooks was asked why he was a Christian, he replied, “I think I am a Christian because of my …

Getting to the Other Side of Things

Weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.                      —Psalm 30:5 “It is what it is.” This cliché is another way of saying this isn’t how things should be, but it’s how things are. We are inclined to glorify the past and …

Some Things Never Change

You remain the same, and your years will never end.          —Hebrews 1:12 No one has to tell you that we live in a changing world because you’ve faced changes that are personal and painful: health issues, fractured relationships, deaths of those you love. But there’s another verse to that song: some …

God Knows Your Name

I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.              —Isaiah 45:3 Miso Vogel was tattooed with number 65,316 at Auschwitz—signaling that 65,315 prisoners had preceded him in being branded. Six-year-old Rene Guttmann was number 169,061. Before it was over, more than 400,000 prisoners at Auschwitz …
