Victory News – August 3, 2018

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear friends, Does your conscience ever bother you? Remember grace. Grace is undeserved love. It’s “while we were still sinners Christ died for us”  and “the Lord our righteousness.” Grace covers all the A-B-Cs of sin. It covers arrests, bullying, cursing, dishonesty, egging someone’s reputation, forgery, greed, hatred, irresponsibility, jealousy, killing, lust, marginalizing people, narcissism, one-night stands, pornography, quarrels, racism, sins of omission, sins of commission, tyranny, an unpardoning spirit, violence, worry, x-rated websites, yearning for thing and…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear friends, Hearing someone call your name can mean lots of emotions: pride, confusion, fear, and joy. Fifteen years ago this past week, the call we got shook my family to its core when our daughter was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.  Jacky’s heart and my heart were already about waist high that morning, because we knew what the doctors were looking for. But when the doctors called us over and the diagnosis came… our hearts splashed onto…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear friends, On a scale of one to ten, where would you rate your level of pride in yourself? It won’t be long before pro football players will run, catch, jump up and down, and thump their chests as if to say, “Look at me; I’m the best!” Forgive me, but I don’t see the grocery store bagger going crazy when she packs your plastic bags and set them in your grocery cart. I don’t see sanitation engineers…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends – Growing up, I liked the game “tag.” I probably liked “tag” because I was quick and fast. We even had a swimming pool game of tag called “sharks” where people tried to swim across the pool without being tagged. We played it for hours in the hot Texas sun. Okay, I’ll be honest. I still like the game “tag.” Other people, and sometimes in our own minds, we tag ourselves with labels like: broken, loser,…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hello Friends – Have you heard the phrase, “God will never give you more than you can handle”? I don’t mean to shock you, but that is not a Biblical statement. It is not a true statement. There are tons of things that you and I can’t handle. They are just too big for us. When we buy into this statement, our circumstances can leave us confused, frustrated, and angry with God. Some have even walked away from…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, We are free. Free to get in our car and go wherever we want. Free to sing praises to our God like our Soccer Camp kids did this week. Free to vote for whomever we choose. Free to seek employment from any company. Free. The national freedom you and I have didn’t happen simply because some people signed a declaration. Our freedom was won with courage on the battle field. Freedom was won when lives were…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, As I write this, I stand at my kitchen counter, beaming with excitement because I am so blessed to be a part of the Victory family and community. God has richly blessed us in the past, and the opportunities that are in front of us to share the love of Jesus are abundant. We have some new ministries just starting (Men’s Circle) or getting ready to start (Stepping Stones) to help us take another step closer…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hello Friends, Happy Father’s Day Weekend. I asked a number of people to give me three words that describe their dads. One said compassionate, dependable, hard-worker.  Others said fearful, insecure, provider; fun-loving, involved, outdoorsman; and moody, opinionated, stressed.  What three characteristics of your father come to mind?  A lot of us were blessed to have very caring, nurturing, Christian fathers.  But for some of us, our fathers were not the greatest  examples.  Wherever our earthly fathers land on…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear friends, Congratulations to our high school and elementary school graduates!  After the cold spring that seemed to never end, summer is finally here. “Summer is a time for _________________.” A lot of things can go in that blank. Things like: grilling out, picnics, water parks, swimming, Soccer Camp, Brewers games, parades, Summerfest, State Fair, camping, vacation and more. As you make vacation plans, be sure to include worship wherever you go.  If you find yourself away from…

Pastor’s Message Hello Friends, Bright orange, burnt orange, light orange. Red, pink, violet. Navy blue, sky blue, aquamarine. Bright green, sea green, forest green. Brown, tan, yellow. All these colors are tents or umbrellas on the white sandy beaches of Fort Morgan, AL. Under every color there is at least one person, but often a group of people. Each person with a different story, a different past, a different future, a different dream. As I write this, the sun has…
