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.

Here Are Some Questions for You

I will question you, and you shall answer me.                                          —Job 38:3 Job lost it all: his wealth, his family, and his health. Our problems, compared to his, are south of Elementary—more like Pre-K. Job complained. …

Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.                                   —Luke 23:46 “Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.” This bedtime prayer has gurgled from the lisping lips of millions of children …

It’s Free

How many are your works, O Lord!                       —Psalm 104:24 When you see the word Free, you’re skeptical—where’s the small print? God dispenses lots of free resources. No strings. I sit on my patio and watch a panorama of sky, clouds, grass, trees, and flowers. …

The Eyes Have It

I will praise You because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made.                   —Psalm 139:14 Dr. DeAnnah Byrd was having a God-moment. Her eyelid had quickly slammed shut, protecting her from injury, just before a projectile hit her eye. She texted me: “We overlook many things in …
