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

Honor Those in Authority

The Fourth Commandment directs us in how to treat our parents: Honor your father and your mother. Our sinful nature often leads us to disrespecting our parents and other authority figures. But God wants us to serve, obey, and love those He puts in authority over us. All parents, governments, bosses, and other leaders were put in position by God. Scripture: Luke 10:24-25, Romans 13:7 Sermon Text: Exodus 20:12

Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday is the day that begins the season of Lent, a time of repentance and reflection. When we take time to worship on this day, we realize our sin and our deep need for a Savior. Sermon Text: Mark 10:17-31

Honor God

The Second and Third Commandments guide us to honor God with our words and our time: You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God and Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Although we’re made new through Jesus, our words and actions don’t always show honor and respect to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God teaches us through these Commandments how to use His name in love and respect and honor Him through setting aside…

Worship the One True God

The First Commandment God gives us is this: You shall have no other gods. God knows our hearts tend to stray away from Him. Because of sin, we find ourselves elevating things like money, careers, and talents to the position that only God can hold in our lives. Through this Commandment, God teaches us that we should fear, love, and trust Him above all other things. Scripture: Matthew 22:37, Luke 1:15-21 Sermon Text: Exodus 20:3-6
