What the World Needs Now

Dear friends, Just over three weeks to Christmas! Yay God! What is your favorite Christmas carol or song? My favorite Christmas song changes all the time. I like “Noel,” by Lauren Daigle. But today, and it might change by tomorrow, my favorite is: “Hark! The Herald Angels Sings,” by Carrie Underwood. I will share a not so well kept secret about myself. I love Christmas music. I’m not to worried about whether it is Thanksgiving or even November yet, any…

Victory News – #BecauseofJesus

Dear Friends, Isn’t God amazing! His generosity knows no bounds. King David said in Psalm 23 the same thing that most of us can say when we look inside our refrigerators and cupboards, “my cups overflows.” Isn’t God amazing! The generosity of his grace and mercy knows no bounds. The book of Isaiah shares this truth about God and our relationship with God, “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they…

Victory News – Shrewd Generosity

Dear Friends, The artwork was first commissioned by Louis XII of France and later owned by Charles I of England. But the “Salvador Mundi” had disappeared and was presumed lost in the late 18th Century. The DaVinci masterpiece reappeared in an auction in 1958. The painting was deemed a copy and sold for just under $60. The “Salvador Mundi” was acquired by a group of art dealers for around $10,000 in 2005. Turning $60 into $10,000 is pretty shrewd, wouldn’t…

Victory News – Scripture Alone

Dear Friends, Diamond cutting is the practice of changing a diamond from a rough stone into a faceted gem. Cutting a diamond requires specialized knowledge, tools, equipment, and techniques because of its extreme difficulty. One miss hit and the diamond can be ruined. Since I shake a lot, I probably would be very good at cutting diamonds. There is a diamond, however, that for many of us, is at our hands everyday. It is the diamond jewel known as God’s…

Seeking Certainty By Faith Alone

Dear Friends, I am told that an Impala (think medium-sized antelope) can run up to fifty miles an hour. They can jump longer than thirty feet. And an Impala can also jump up to 10 feet high. And yet if you go to a zoo, an Impala can be contained by a simple three foot high solid wall. That’s crazy. Do you know why they want jump the little three foot wall? Because Impala won’t jump when they can’t see where…

Victory News – Soul Searching – Where are we going when we die?

Dear Friends, What do you think about when it is just you and God? What do you and your friends talk about when you go deep? Have you ever wondered where you came from? What your purpose is? Have you ever considered can anyone really tell what is right or wrong? Soul searching questions, aren’t they? Last Sunday evening a man was in his hotel room in Las Vegas while 22,000 people were attending a concert about a quarter mile…

Victory News – September 22, 2017

Dear Friends, Most of us have heard of FOMO (the fear of missing out). FOMO keeps us from committing to things because we are afraid that something better might come up and we don’t want to miss out on that better thing. This weekend we are continuing our series “Soul Searching.” To be honest with you, I don’t want you to miss out! Pastor Ben is going to share with us an amazing message from God’s Word. He is going…

Victory News September 15, 2017

Dear Friends, This weekend is going to be a great weekend at Victory of the Lamb! We are kicking off the Fall schedule with a new series called Soul Searching. In this series we are going to ask and answer some universal questions like: Where have I come from? Why am I here? Where am I going? What is the point and purpose of life? Does my life mean anything? Is there a God out there? What happens when I…

Vending Machines, Microchips and Prayer

Dear friends, One of our Core Values at Victory is Youth Engagement. God has blessed many of our families with children and God has blessed all of us with our Victory Kids ministry. It is so cool to see the smiling faces leave the Victory Kids wing on Sunday morning. Time and again, parents tell me how their child(ren) can’t wait to get to Victory Kids! So a “shout out” to God and to all who use their God-given gifts…

God is Powerful in Your Story

Dear friends, My fourth grade teacher teacher would read to us over lunch time.  One of the stories she read was Old Yeller.  I don’t know if you have ever even heard of Old Yeller but it is a story of love and loss.  In the story, a yellow rugged looking dog comes for an uninvited stay with a young boy named Travis and his family. Travis reluctantly adopts the dog. Though Travis initially loathes the “rascal” and at first…
