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.

Declared Alive

You were dead in your transgressions and sins.       —Ephesians 2:1 Unemployed, addicted, and deeply in debt, Ohio resident Donald Miller went on the lam in 1986, leaving behind a wife and two children.

Mood Boosters

Trust in the Lord and do good.                 —Psalm 37:3 Your mindset determines how you deal with life, and how you deal with life determines the outcome of life. Put your mind to it we’re told, and you can accomplish anything. “As you think, so shall you become,” …

Lose Some Weight

Lay aside every weight, and sin.                —Hebrews 12:1 Back in my Junior High days, there was a two-panel ad that was burned into every adolescent’s psyche. The first panel pictured a bully kicking sand in a scrawny weakling’s face. The second panel pictured the wimp, morphed into a …

A Path Marked “Unknown”

They did not understand.                 —Luke 9:45 “Listen carefully to what I am about to tell you,” Jesus said. The disciples listened . . . but “they did not understand” (Lk 9:44, 45). Sometimes our spiritual journey takes us down a path marked “Unknown,” which activates an exasperated, …
