Victory News – February 15, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, My son has a dog named Chief. When my son adopted Chief as puppy, everything and everyone scared Chief. People just wanted to hold the cute little Labrador puppy, but Chief was so afraid he would run away. Now, Chief loves to play with people, but he is still afraid of the vacuum cleaner. Sometimes, people run away from God. They are unsure or maybe even super scared. Plus, God knows all the “bad stuff” they’ve…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Song lyrics. Stats. Things other people did to us. We remember a lot of things. Sometimes we just go on auto-pilot because we know how to do something or how to get somewhere. Growing up, we had this assignment in Confirmation class called memory work. Our students still have it today. I remember giving the Christmas assignment to a Confirmation class years ago: learn Luke 2:1-20 … 20 verses. One of the students, who was bright…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Anticipation… a snowstorm is coming! There used to be days when I would lose sleep over this. I always wanted the storm to bring more snow that predicted! Now, not so much. I think having a family tempered that for me. Every day we face a storm: a storm of sin. Our own sin threatens us as well as the sins of others. Each day I can’t wait to hear God speak to us through his…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, How’s the New Year started off for you? It has been less than two weeks since we started 2019.  Already, I know of a cancer diagnosis, a potential genetic disorder, two car wrecks, a home repair in the thousands, and many more difficult situations. Life can be overwhelming if we focus in on the what is going on or trying to figure out the why this is happening. And you know what we try to do,…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, New Year’s Resolutions used to be very popular. But, in recent times, New Year’s resolutions have become less and less a part of our lives. I think I know why: because we are tired of failing.  As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem. (Luke 9:51) This verse said in another way: as the time approached for Jesus to be crucified, he resolutely set out for…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Are you ready for 2019? Some things will be the same, and some things will be new. Like you, I don’t know exactly what will happen in 2019 but I do know who will be with us! And the God who will be with us is faithful. I am excited as we move forward together because God and his grace and mercy will be leading, guiding us. Along with the Apostle Paul this is my prayer…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, I love looking at Christmas decorations. We broke one of our family’s unwritten rules last night: we drove through Candy Cane Lane without snow on the ground. The decorated neighborhood is beautiful. There were thousands  of lights, along with snowmen, reindeer, Olaf, and many manger scenes. Seeing that manger scene reminded me that we need Jesus and the manger more than we realize. We have sinned by breaking God’s law so many times.  But because the…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Numbers. They’re all over the place. To bake my pizza, I need to set my oven to the number 425. The favorite channel in the Limmer home, at least for 2 of us, is number 30 – ESPN! Aaron Rodgers will often call out Green 19, Green 19 before the ball is snapped. Christmas is 11 days away. Worship on Sunday is at 9:00am and 10:30am. Christmas Eve services are at 2:00 and 4:00 pm Here is…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Christmas traditions. We all have them. Some of us have the tradition of opening up Christmas presents on Christmas Eve, while others of us open presents on Christmas Day. Some have the tradition of colored lights on the tree, while others only do white. For some, Christmas traditions revolve around the homemade cookies or candies. For some, it is the tradition of having everybody home. I’m sure you are already thinking of a number of traditions…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Is your tree up? Real or artificial? Are your lights white or colored? What kinds of ornaments do you have? Maybe they are made by the kids, ones that were gifts, or maybe some are family heirlooms. Do you have a star, angel, or something else on top? Maybe you have ribbon on your tree. Do you like how it looks? On Good Friday, the tree was real. There were no lights. In fact, it got…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Wow. Black Friday deals. I saw large screen TV’s for outrageously low prices. Video games, toys, and jewelry prices slashed. One discount after another. Black Friday is a shopper’s delight. Wow. Good Friday deals. I would have never been able to afford it, not even close. But because of a Good Friday long ago where our Savior was slashed and crucified, our sins were paid for in full. This is not a discount where we still…
