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.

Don’t Grieve God

Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God.                    —Ephesians 4:30 Someone reading these words is grieving over a son or daughter who has broken their heart. A desire to make our parents proud of us and a determination to avoid disappointing them incentivize honorable behavior. Ken …

Seek Wisdom

Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom.                                       —Proverbs 4:7 In Paul’s list of nine Spirit-given gifts, the first two are wisdom and knowledge (1 Cor 12:8). Sometimes the two coexist, but not always. All of us have …

Upside Down Prayer

This, then, is how you should pray.                        —Matthew 6:9 Do you ever get your prayers upside down? I do. I sometimes put the things that should be last first and the things that should be first last. Here’s what I mean. My prayers usually …

Faster than Instant Communication

We know that . . . we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven. —2 Corinthians 5:1 In the early days of our country, letters between parties in the U.S. normally took three months for delivery; foreign correspondence commonly required six months. So, the result of an election, congressional vote, or foreign …

Measuring Your Worth

We brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.                    —1 Timothy 6:7 Satan doesn’t encounter much resistance in enticing us to focus on money—even conning us into using it as our standard of judgment. “What’s he worth?” doesn’t require translation. We …
