What does God say about divorce?

God created marriage in such a way that man and woman “become one flesh”. Marriage is supposed to be a sacred bond that lasts until death. But we know that’s not always the case. Marriages are tricky relationships because of our sinful nature. So what does God say about divorce? Are there situations where it’s okay to get divorced, or should people stay in marriages no matter what? What happens in future relationships for people who have been divorced? To…

Where did sin come from?

Right at the start of the Bible, we read in Genesis how God created a perfect earth with perfect people. However, things didn’t stay perfect forever. God’s creation used the free will given to them by their Creator to be tempted by Satan, thereby staining the world forever. But is this where sin actually started – in the Garden of Eden? Or did it start when Satan fell from Heaven? And why did God allow this to happen at all?…

Why does God let bad things happen?

We know that being a Christian doesn’t guarantee us care-free lives. But the weight of the world often gets heavy. We see senseless violence, suffering and pain, hardship, and strife everywhere we look. Some of the most faith-filled people endure more difficult trials than we can ever imagine. We can’t help wondering why these bad things happen in our lives and the lives of those around us. We know that God has the power to prevent all of it. So…

Will only Christians go to Heaven?

Being a Christian isn’t just about going to Heaven. It’s about serving and loving others, showing them the love of Jesus and telling them about Him to have an eternal impact on their lives. We know through the faith worked in our hearts by the Holy Spirit that we can look forward to eternity in Heaven with God. But we still have a lot of questions about eternity. What will it be like in Heaven? Who is going to be…

Do you have to be baptized to be saved?

Most likely, you’ve witnessed a baptism, and maybe you’ve been baptized yourself. You hear the pastor explain the sacrament of baptism, seen the application of water on the head and the heart, and prayed over the person. But why is baptism important? Is baptism necessary to go to Heaven? When should you be baptized? And what happens to those people who weren’t or couldn’t be baptized before death? To answer these questions, we’ll dig into the account of Pentecost in…

Why do we need to keep asking God for forgiveness?

Jesus lived a perfect life and died as our substitute to pay the price of sin. Then, he defeated death when he was resurrected. Because of all this, God doesn’t see our sins any longer. So why should we keep asking for forgiveness if we know we’re already forgiven? What’s the point of feeling guilty for our sins? To help us understand why we continually go to God with our sins and ask for his forgiveness, we’ll study Jesus’ parable…

God & Depression

Elijah has just experienced God at work in a great victory over the prophets of Baal. But he soon despairs of his own life. As he flees from Jezebel after a great victory, he feels lonely, isolated, and fearful. He wants to die. In this difficult time of depression, God strengthens and refreshes Elijah with the truth. When you feel depressed, it can seem like nothing will ever get better. You feel alone, isolated, and afraid. But through the support…

Gospel Preachers, Gospel Clients

As Christians, witnessing to others isn’t like how celebrites get paid millions of dollars to endorse a product for a company. We’re recipients of the same grace we’re sharing with people. So, when you’re struggling to find the motivation and courage to share Jesus with the people around you, remember this: you’re not just a Gospel preacher, you’re a Gospel client. The good news of forgiveness and freedom that you’re sharing is just as much for you as for the…

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…
