Victory News – September 13, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, While on vacation this past summer, Jacky and I went to a fast food restaurant. We ordered our meals and we both opted for water. While I was paying the bill at the counter, Jacky went to the newer Coke Freestyle soda machine. The machine poured her water and she found our seats. I took my cup and went to the soda machine. When I saw a button for lemon water,  thought, “Wow, that’s cool. I…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, We are finishing up our sermon series on the book of Jonah. When it comes to the meaning of the book of Jonah, we often miss the boat. We might think the story is just about a runaway prophet and a big fish. That story works well for kids books, but the main message of Jonah is much deeper. You see, when we read Jonah 4, we find the real reason Jonah ran away: he was prejudiced.…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, A funny thing happened while we were in Door County.  We were at a restaurant and they said it would be about a 30 minute wait. But about 10 minutes into our wait, our pager went off.  They asked us if we minded sharing a table. “No, that’s cool.” And so, we set down by and enjoyed a meal together with another family made up of four generations. A funny thing happened at State Fair. We…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, “And one!” I don’t know how many times I have said that watching a basketball game. A player drives through the lane and gets fouled and, with energy, I move my arm forward saying, “and one!” Maybe you have a family of four and when you are sitting down to eat, there are four there “and one.” Maybe you are on vacation right now. As you and your family and friends are hiking, don’t forget the…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Are you a list maker? The famous Benjamin Franklin loved to make lists. One of his lists was thirteen virtues that he tried to live by every day. He said that he was making it his goal to reach moral perfection. On his list were things like temperance, frugality, and justice. You can guess what happened. Each day his spiritual scorecard was filled with marks. Not even the great inventor, philosopher, and government leader was able…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, I can’t believe it is Memorial Day Weekend. It seems like yesterday and it was 20 something below zero in January. I imagine a lot of families are waking up today saying, “I can’t believe it is Memorial Day Weekend.” But, their lives are full of grief as they think back to the loved one or ones that lost their lives fighting for the freedoms we enjoy in our country. This weekend, we thank God for…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Who is Jesus to you? Of course, we might give the standard answer: Jesus is the Savior of the world. Yes, that’s so true! But we also need to be honest that the culture is telling us a different message about Jesus. Currently, we live in a post-truth culture. And in a post-truth culture, we are supposed to keep our personal beliefs about Jesus private. So some might tell you, “It’s okay if you want to…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Imagine you have two pennies. One is dark, tarnished, frayed a little on the edges.  The other one is bright and shiny. They look different. But the United States Department of Treasury says they have the exact same value. Imagine two people. One is roughed-up from difficult times in life, frayed on the edges. The other one is full of smiles because life has been pretty easy. God, who made them both in his image, says…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, The NFL draft began last night. And with the first pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Arizona Cardinals selected Kyler Murray, quarterback from Oklahoma. Can you imagine how exciting it is to hear your name called in the draft? Not only are you wanted, you become an instant millionaire and are set for life. I didn’t get drafted to play in the NFL. Probably not shocking, right? But I have great news for me and…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, I’m in the middle of the stockyards in Forth Worth, TX. It looks a little different now than it used to, but there is a lot of history here. From the original brick walkways to the wooden corrals, every inch of the stockyards tells the true history of Texas’s famous livestock industry. In the life of the Christian church, the tension is rising as we get closer to the dusty roads of the Via Dolorosa and…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Is your tree up? Real or artificial? Are your lights white or colored? What kinds of ornaments do you have? Maybe they are made by the kids, ones that were gifts, or maybe some are family heirlooms. Do you have a star, angel, or something else on top? Maybe you have ribbon on your tree. Do you like how it looks? On Good Friday, the tree was real. There were no lights. In fact, it got…

Victory News – November 23, 2018

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Wow. Black Friday deals. I saw large screen TV’s for outrageously low prices. Video games, toys, and jewelry prices slashed. One discount after another. Black Friday is a shopper’s delight. Wow. Good Friday deals. I would have never been able to afford it, not even close. But because of a Good Friday long ago where our Savior was slashed and crucified, our sins were paid for in full. This is not a discount where we still…
