Victory News – April 26, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, The NFL draft began last night. And with the first pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Arizona Cardinals selected Kyler Murray, quarterback from Oklahoma. Can you imagine how exciting it is to hear your name called in the draft? Not only are you wanted, you become an instant millionaire and are set for life. I didn’t get drafted to play in the NFL. Probably not shocking, right? But I have great news for me and…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Tough love is hard. It is hard to keeps its promises. Just ask any parent how easy it is to cave. But God is the perfect parent with perfect love, and so he keeps his promises perfectly. (John 19: 34) Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus’ side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water. The man who saw it has given testimony, and his testimony is true. He knows that he…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, It is that time of year when change is in the air.  Monday it was 70 degrees, and it was snowing on Wednesday. That’s quite a change. As we go through life, we go through changing seasons. Some changes are more difficult than others; some are scary, some are welcomed, and some are for our good. The greatest change agent of all is our Savior Jesus Christ. He changes everything. By grace through faith in Jesus…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, I’m in the middle of the stockyards in Forth Worth, TX. It looks a little different now than it used to, but there is a lot of history here. From the original brick walkways to the wooden corrals, every inch of the stockyards tells the true history of Texas’s famous livestock industry. In the life of the Christian church, the tension is rising as we get closer to the dusty roads of the Via Dolorosa and…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, I’m so pumped – spring is here. Spring is full of new life and nice weather. Time to start grilling! Have you grilled yet? I have… three times. But I will be honest, the results have been mixed. The first time, it was burgers on the grill. I couldn’t wait, and neither could the fire. We had pizza that night. Next time, it was wings. I was so keyed. They were just starting to smell good,…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, The NCAA Tournament is in full swing now that March Madness has begun. Games come one after another with a dominating win here, a close game here, and upsets there. You want to know what madness really is? It is when someone tries to hold onto their sin debt that has already been paid. And by trying to hold onto this debt that has already been paid, many of us have walked or are walking the…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, To be honest, I struggle with some temptations. I can’t stand it. I’m tired of it. This side of heaven, we will all struggle with temptations. Here is some of what I have learned about temptation. If I rely on my own strength and my own willpower, it is just a matter of time before I cave and then have the guilt and shame that follow my indulgence. The more I think about avoiding the temptation,…

Victory News – March 8, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, The President said what? The pastor said what? Our military did what? The teacher did what? To me, scandals aren’t just things that happen; they are things we don’t expect to happen. Scandals deal with things we didn’t see coming. At this time in the Christian church year, we focus on the scandals surrounding the death of Jesus. This includes everything from the church leaders finding the innocent Jesus guilty to the atheist finding Jesus innocent…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, How’s that sharing thing going for you? Most two-year-olds have the “not sharing” thing down pat. It’s kind of like, “No way am I giving you what I have, and more than that I want what you have.” They struggle with sharing, even though we taught them to share. Sometimes, we adults are good at not sharing too. For those of us who are Christians, we have the greatest news of all and we often want…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Economists talk about bad debt and good debt. Bad debt is when you buy things you really don’t need and charge them to your credit card. Bad debts depreciate in value while you are still paying them off.  Good debt is when you take out a loan to pay for something that will likely appreciate in value, like a home. Many of you know that in God’s economy there is bad debt. The bad debt is…
