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.

How sweet are your words to my taste.                           —Psalm 119:103 Spiritual life is both birthed and sustained by God’s Word: “You have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God” (1 Pt …

Courageous Faith

The Lord your God is with you wherever you go.            —Joshua 1:9 John McCain spent five-and-a-half years in “Hanoi Hilton” prison in Vietnam, where beatings were routine, torture was commonplace, and fear was constant. “Fear,” wrote McCain, “is indispensable to courage.” For courage to be authentic, he said, “it must …

Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.                            —Mark 6:50 Jesus’ disciples were in a frightful storm. They had expected him to join them on their lake crossing, but “Jesus had not yet come to them” (Jn 6:17). Where was he? Why …

What is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.     —2 Corinthians 4:18 Babylon was once the most famous city in the world. Its Hanging Gardens was one of the Seven Wonders of the World. In 100 A.D., Ephesus had a population of 500,000. Its Temple of Artemis was the largest building …
