Victory News – February 21, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Did you ever fight with your brother or sister? Did you ever feel like you were getting the short end of the stick? Sibling rivalry and messy families go hand in hand. Sibling rivalry often starts not long after the birth of the second child. Siblings can be tough on one another. This rivalry is made up of fighting, competition, and jealousy as the children strive for significance and acceptance from their parents and their peer…

Victory News – February 14, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, The other day, I asked my daughter Shelby, “Honey, if I told you that you are becoming more and more like your mom and dad, would that be a compliment or an insult?” She gave a perfect answer: “It depends.” You see, there are some things about our parents that we want to imitate. Maybe your parents were disciplined and organized. Perhaps they were caring and thoughtful. Maybe they were godly and tried to put God…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Last night I asked Jacky, “What’s for supper?” She responded, “Remember, I told you we were going to have left-overs.” My heart sank. I mean, the meals throughout the week were good, but I just wasn’t in the mood for eating food that was staining the bottom and the sides of the Glad containers with an orange tint. Moments later, Jacky went to the refrigerator to grab all the containers for the random mix and match…

Victory News – January 31, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Last week, I watched a spiritually satisfying and theologically deep movie… Disney’s Aladdin (2019). There is this great scene where the Genie explains to Aladdin how the wishes work. The Genie says that most people wish for money or power. Then he adds, “Do me a favor; do not drink from that cup. I promise you, there’s not enough money and power on earth for you to be satisfied.” Disney gets it. There is not enough…

Victory News – January 24, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Last Saturday, when we got in our car to go out, I knew a blinker light burned out by the rapid speed of the blinker light signal on the console. Now I don’t work for NAPA or Autozone, but I have replaced a few blinker lights along the way and . . . there is Youtube, after all. So I Youtubed it. The video showed that, to replace the blinker light, I need to take the…

Victory News – January 17, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Almost a year ago, we decided to accept the call to come to Victory. The decision involved after much prayer and counsel from wise people. That one decision dramatically changed the direction of our lives. It led our family down a new path with a new destination. I know that was a big decision, but, in the book of Proverbs, Solomon compares all our decisions to choosing a path that leads to a specific destination. In…

Victory News – January 10, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Do you ever struggle with comparison? You visit someone’s house and it is beautiful and everything is in order. And then you walk into your house their dishes on the table, the counter top, and a few other places like the kids room, the bathroom and … you feel like a loser. The devil loves it when we compare ourselves to others because there are two options: we think less of ourselves than we should or…

Victory News – January 3, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Where am I going? And how am I going to get there? Those are the two questions that we naturally ask this time of the year. It’s the time of the year when people set goals and design a strategy to accomplish them. That’s why we are starting this new sermon series called Seeing 2020. In this series, we are going to discuss making wise decisions about our future as we look at the book of…
