Victory News – July 19, 2019

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…

Victory News – April 5, 2019

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…

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…

Victory News – November 16, 2018

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, It is that time of year when we cover up with a blanket and sip on a cup of coffee or hot chocolate to stay warm and comfortable. Sometimes as Christians, we cover up what is really going on in our lives. We cover up our hurts by avoiding them and keeping busy. To try to cover up our sins, we do good works. We try to cover up our cold hearts by becoming upset with…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Imagine climbing up a platform 500 feet in the air and grabbing the trapeze bar in front of you.  With a deep breath, you swing out. On the back swing you can’t help but notice there is no net below. You swing forward, and as your trapeze reaches its apex you let go and you see your partner waiting for you, upside down, knees tightly clenched around his trapeze, arms outstretched.  You have only one thing left to…

Victory News – October 19, 2018

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Horrifically, we were alerted on Monday via text and TV interruption of a young girl who was missing and endangered. As of right now, she has not been found. I think most of us, if we had the opportunity, would volunteer our time to search for her. It is my prayer that she will be found alive and safe by the time you read this. God has a bunch of “missing kids” who are “lost and…

Victory News – September 28, 2018

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, It took a number of years, a number of surgeries, and a number of counseling sessions. But Tigers Woods is back winning the Tour Championship. Jesus made an even more remarkable comeback. A comeback from death to life. Every day, he comes back with grace and mercy that we need. Do you need to make a comeback? Give up on a pet sin, change your mind about a lifestyle, take back a harsh judgment? The good news…
