Victory News – May 7, 2021

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, This weekend we are beginning a new series entitled Called: Finding Your Role in God’s Work. In this series, we will see that God has called us to our specific roles in life to do His work. He is the one who has called us to be mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, employers, employees, and citizens. No matter who we are, we all have a role to carry out in God’s kingdom. This Sunday, we are going…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, I hope you have enjoyed this sermon series as much as I have. It has been such a blessing to study, preach, listen, and learn about Jesus’ resurrection appearances. Each message continues to give me hope in the darkness. Jesus really did rise from the dead. The early followers of Jesus told us so. But maybe you are like me. Maybe you don’t just want to hear evidence about Jesus’ resurrection. Maybe you want to experience…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Have you ever doubted God’s existence? God’s plan for you? That God is on your side? That He knows what He is doing? Have you ever doubted that he forgives you? We all struggle with doubt from time to time, yet we often pretend like we have it all together. Doubts often happen when our circumstances are different than what we think they should be, like when someone gets sick, or worse. Here is a key:…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Grief is an unavoidable part of this fallen world. Either we are in the middle of grieving, we have just finished grieving, or we are about to grieve. I know that sounds depressing and hopeless. But that is the reality. As Jesus said, “In this world, you will have trouble…” But that’s not all he said. He continued, “But take heart! I have overcome the world!” (John 16:33). That is the good news of Jesus’ resurrection. We…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, This past Monday, the Baylor’s men basketball team won the NCAA Tournament Championship, denying an undefeated season and national championship for Gonzaga. Back in 1993, Chris Webber rebounded a missed free throw in Michigan’s national championship game versus North Carolina. With just under 20 seconds left and down by two, Webber hastily dribbled the ball down court. Failing to realize his team had no timeouts left, he called a timeout. Michigan was assessed a technical foul…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, This is it! This is the most important week out of the year! No, I’m not talking about March Madness or Brewer’s opening day. It’s Easter! The culmination of Holy Week. Better yet, it’s the culmination of history. This is why Jesus was born in Bethlehem. He came into this world to live as our substitute, defeat death on the cross, and bring in new life through his resurrection! Unlike the Christmas season, Walmart and the…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, The city was packed.  Visitors to the city easily outnumbered the residents 10-1. Many people were excited to visit the big city. For some of them, it was their first time. They were ready to celebrate! But there was also tension. There was pressure. There was animosity. People were behaving poorly on both sides. Some feared a riot was going to break out. The army patrolled streets in mass and in force. Suddenly there was a…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, This Sunday, we finish our current sermon series called Detox. We were hoping that this sermon series might prepare your hearts for Holy Week (which is the celebration of Jesus entering Jerusalem, dying, and rising from the dead on Easter). This series was based on a letter written by Jesus’ half-brother, James. And out of all the books of the Bible, this one might be one of the hardest ones to read. What James says is…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, What is your most powerful muscle? If you go to a fitness center you can see people working on their abs, their glutes, their biceps, triceps and more. As you work out, you notice that some muscles are stronger than others. But hopefully everyone is there to get stronger on their own and not to compare with others. As you consider your body, what is the most powerful muscle you have? No matter who you are,…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, I have a confession to make. Do you remember the Ice Bucket challenge that everyone was doing a few years ago to support ALS? I jumped onto that bandwagon, poured ice water over my head, recorded a video, and encouraged someone else to do the same. The only problem was I didn’t actually give a donation to ALS, at least not at first. (Later, my conscience caught up with me and I gave a donation.) I…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, There have always been people who think they are better than everyone else. Some feel they are better than everyone else because of their position in the company, because they have a lot of money, or because they belong to a certain religious group. Some feel a sense of sense of moral superiority, like the Pharisee who prayed in Luke 18:11, ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, This week we start our new series called Detox. Don’t worry; we won’t be requiring anyone to drink green shakes or do a juice cleanse. But we will be encouraging everyone to detox our minds and hearts from the toxic culture. Our culture has been poisoned with immorality, selfishness, pride, and scandal. Unfortunately, the world’s venom has sunk its teeth into even the Christian church. I wish I could say that just becoming a Christian and…
