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.

You Are Expected

He has prepared a city for them.                 —Hebrews 11:16 We came into this world totally helpless and unable to contribute a dime of capital or a day of work to the family that welcomed us. Even so, our coming had been excitedly anticipated, and every imaginable preparation …

The Fool’s Biography

[God] will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear.    —1 Corinthians 10:13 A person “is tempted,” wrote James, “when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown gives birth to death” (Jas …

Trust Will Be Tested

Trust in the Lord with all your heart.                         —Proverbs 3:5 Trust isn’t tested in the pew; it’s tested in battle. It’s tested when the night is dark, and cold, and lonely. It’s tested when loss is devastating and answers are elusive. Jesus knows …

The End of Your Story

We put our hope in the Lord.                 —Psalm 33:20 Last night I turned the final page of an on-the-edge-of-your-seat novel. Laying it aside, I thought, “I don’t know why I didn’t see that coming.” That’s the way of a good novel—it holds you in suspense until the …
