God & Anger

As he and his people wander the desert, Moses is tired. The walking is exhausting, but even worse is the constant complaining from his people. They don’t trust that the God who rescued them from the Egyptians and parted the Red Sea for them would provide for them as they journeyed to the Promised Land. And so, when God tells Moses to speak to the rock to provide water to the Israelites, Moses’ trust faltered. His anger bubbled over and,…

God & Anxiety

In Luke 10, we hear the famous story of Mary and Martha. When Jesus arrives for dinner, Martha has a list a mile long of things to prepare for a supper with her Savior. Understandably, she gets frustrated with her sister Mary as she “sits around” rather than helping. Jesus gently teaches Martha that taking time with Him is the right thing to do. Like Martha, moms have a to-do list a mile and a half long, and it seems…

God & Joy

The book of Philippians is all about finding joy and contentment in whatever circumstance you find yourself. It’s even more powerful when you realize that Paul, the author, brings this message even though he wrote this book from prison. Through his Spirit-inspired words, we learn that we can find joy in all situations, no matter how tough. On this Confirmation Sunday, we rejoice as young adults in our congregation confirm their beliefs in Jesus and become members at Victory. Faith…

God & Grief

On the third day after Jesus’ crucifixion, a group of disciples walked together on the road to Emmaus. They were completely lost in the grief of losing their leader, their lives shattered because they had yet to see the promise of the resurrection fulfilled. Even before they realize it, Jesus walks alongside them, opens the Scriptures to them, and they see him in and through God’s Word. When we find ourselves lost in grief, wandering aimlessly and unsure of where…

New Life (Easter at Victory)

On the first Easter, the resurrected Jesus appeared to the women at the tomb and to his disciples, and it changed everything. Despair turned to hope. Grief turned to joy. Because Jesus is alive, we too have new life. This new life means we can put our old ways behind us. We can “set our minds on things above”, living lives of love inspired by the love God showed us when he forgave all our sins through Jesus. The old…

New Relationship (Good Friday)

God commanded separation between Himself and the Israelites. In both the tabernacle and the temple in the Old Testament, the people were separated from the Holy of Holies (where God dwelt) by a curtain. Because of their sin, the people could not approach God. Because of Jesus, all of that has changed. When Jesus died on the cross that first Good Friday, the temple curtain was torn in two. The dividing wall of sin came down, and we now have…

New Covenant (Maundy Thursday)

The prophet Jeremiah preaches a warning to his people about the destruction that was to come for Israel. But he also gives them hope of a new covenant that God promises to  make with His people through which He will forgive their wickedness and remember their sins no more. God promises this covenant through his Son, Jesus. God knows we can’t achieve the perfection He demands of us. We messed up the old covenant He gave, so God gives us…

Be Content

In the final two commandments, God explains that we need to be content with what we have: You shall not covet your neighbor’s house and You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor. We often look at the houses and material possessions around us and want what we don’t have. But nothing on Earth will fulfill us. True contentment comes only from God. Scripture: Philippians…

Be Honest

God tells us the importance of honesty through the Eighth Commandment: You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor. When we tell lies about others or act in other ways to hurt their reputation, we are not representing Christ and honoring God. Instead, we share Jesus with others when we defend them and speak well of them in our communities. Scripture: 1 Corinthians 13 Sermon Text: Exodus 20:16

Have Integrity

Through the Seventh Commandment, God tells us: You shall not steal. When we steal from others or take in another dishonest way, we are not only harming our communities; we are harming our relationship with God. To show love to others and God, we can serve in our communities to make improvements and protect those who live there. Scripture: Luke 12:15 Sermon Text: Exodus 20:15

Demonstrate Purity and Faithfulness

The Sixth Commandment directs: You shall not commit adultery. God created sex as a gift to be shared within a marriage, but our sinful desires often lead us to explore this gift in impure and unfaithful ways. When we obey this commandment, we are demonstrating love and respect not only to our spouses, but to ourselves and to God. Out of love for us, God leads us to live lives of purity and faithfulness. Scripture: Ephesians 5:1-4 Sermon Text: Exodus…

Help and Support Others

In the Fifth Commandment, God tells us: You shall not murder. Jesus expands this to include those thoughts, attitudes, and actions towards others which are done with ill intent. When we help and support our neighbors in every physical need, we are fearing and loving God. Through this commandment, God teaches us to treat all people as His children. Scripture: Luke 10:25-37 Sermon Text: Exodus 20:13
