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.

Today's Walk in the Word

Run the Right Direction

Run away from all those things.             —1 Timothy 6:11 Elizabeth’s three children were quiet. Too quiet. Checking on them, she found them feeding a brood of baby skunks. “Run kids, run!” she screeched. Each grabbed a skunk and ran. When temptation comes knocking at your door, it’s time to …

Dressing Up—Or Down

Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty.     —1 Peter 3:3 Peter apparently conquered his earlier fears, for it took enormous courage to write these words to wives: “Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty that depends on fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should be known for the beauty that comes …

Sooner or Later, Sin Is Exposed

Your sin will find you out.      —Numbers 32:23 Adolph Hitler, with his goose-stepping terrorists, had the world on edge. But at 10 Downing Street, cigar-chomping, brandy-sipping Prime Minister Churchill was composed and confident. He knew it was just a matter of time until the insecurity, immorality, and insanity of the führer would be …

All Is Well That Ends Well

Seek your happiness in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desire.                           —Psalm 37:4 The other line moves faster—at the bank, supermarket, tollbooth. If you change lanes, the one you were in previously moves faster. All papers that you save …

Seeing the Invisible

He persevered because he saw him who is invisible.       —Hebrews 11:27 Seldom can you describe a person in two words, but Moses met that measure: “He persevered,” wrote the scribe of Hebrews. Moses faced the threats of Pharaoh, the biggest bully of the era; the recurrent rebellion of the Israelites; the provoking …

Mother’s Day

She watches over the affairs of her household.  —Proverbs 31:27 Each year, on the second Sunday in May, we celebrate Mother’s Day. The most uncomfortable people on that day are mothers—both young and old—for mothers always feel overwhelmed and underqualified. There are some things you would do differently if you had a second chance. But …
