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…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, In his book Unshakable Hope, Max Lucado writes: “Two people set out to build their homes. The first went to RPF Home Supply (Regrets, Pain, and Fear). He ordered lumber that was rotted by guilt, nails that were rusting from pain, and the cement that was watered down with anxiety. Since his home was constructed with RPF supplies, every day was consumed with regret, pain, and fear. The second builder went to different supplier. She secured her…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear friends, Have you ever played the kids game “follow the leader?” In this game, one person is the leader and the rest line up by behind him/her and do whatever the leader does or they get disqualified from the game. For Christians, Jesus is not only a Savior but also our Lord, our Leader. Jesus didn’t just teach; he led by example:  Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Life is full of ups and downs, of good and bad. You make the team and you feel good. You get cut and you feel bad. The Packers win and you feel good. The Packers lose and you feel bad. You get the job promotion and you feel good. You don’t get the job promotion and you feel bad. The dinner you make tastes good and you feel good. The dinner doesn’t turn out so well…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Here are some mission statements you might recognize: “To inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time.” (Starbucks)  “To organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.” (Google) “To seek and save the lost.” (Jesus) What is your mission in life?  What if your mission is way too small? This weekend, we are going to look at the big mission that Jesus has for…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, It’s easy to judge others, even if we don’t intend to do so. One Sunday morning, a man in ragged clothes, looking rugged and walking slowly, made his way down the side of the highway near a church. Car after car passed by the man and pulled into the church parking lot. Some people in their cars talked about him as they passed by, and some pretended not to notice him. When the church service started…

What is the most outrageous teaching of Jesus? This weekend in our Start With Jesus series, I am going to share with you what many people think is the most scandalous, jaw-dropping, outrageous teaching of Jesus. I will give you a hint: sooner or later, you are going to…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, While on vacation this past summer, Jacky and I went to a fast food restaurant. We ordered our meals and we both opted for water. While I was paying the bill at the counter, Jacky went to the newer Coke Freestyle soda machine. The machine poured her water and she found our seats. I took my cup and went to the soda machine. When I saw a button for lemon water,  thought, “Wow, that’s cool. I…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Sometimes when a golfer shanks their first tee shot, they are allowed a mulligan. A mulligan is a do over, a second chance. Sometimes when students bomb a test, the teacher will allow them to retake it. The teacher will give the student a second chance. Can you think of a time when you needed a second chance? A lot of times when we need a second chance it begins with us admitting our mistake -“I’m…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, I want lots of things: summer to last a little longer; something to eat; the College Football season to start; new clothes. We all have wants. Every human being comes into the world needing to feel loved. Often, young people will act out when they are feeling insecure or unloved. They want someone to notice them. They want to be wanted. I have good news. You are WANTED by God. And that is true for everyone.…
