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.

He is not here; he has risen.          —Matthew 28:6 Jesus began his ministry “to fulfill what was said through the prophet Isaiah . . . the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned” (Mt …

Heaven Stayed Silent

Let God save him, if he wants to.            —Matthew 27:43 The religious leaders mocked Jesus as he hung on the cross (Mt. 27:41–43). “He trusted God,” they said, “so let God save him if he wants to.” Heaven stayed silent. Jesus said he could ask his Father, and he would …

Come down from the cross, if you are the Son of God!     —Matthew 27:40 “Those who passed by hurled insults at [Jesus], shaking their heads and saying, ‘You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself! Come down from the cross, if you are the Son …

I'm Doing This for You

Christ died for sins . . . the righteous for the unrighteous.                 —1 Peter 3:18 Turning his bruised and bloody face toward Jesus, the robber asked, “Are you doing this for me?” “Yes. And for that soldier with the club hanging from his belt—the club he’s going …

He Took Our Place

Jesus Christ laid down his life for us.                   —1 John 3:16 Many Bible exegetes contend that the cross on which Jesus died was intended for Barabbas, a notorious terrorist who was in custody. It was Pilate’s custom at Passover to free one prisoner, of the people’s …
