Victory News – May 10, 2019

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, Tough love is hard. It is hard to keeps its promises. Just ask any parent how easy it is to cave. But God is the perfect parent with perfect love, and so he keeps his promises perfectly. (John 19: 34) Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus’ side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water. The man who saw it has given testimony, and his testimony is true. He knows that he…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, It is that time of year when change is in the air.  Monday it was 70 degrees, and it was snowing on Wednesday. That’s quite a change. As we go through life, we go through changing seasons. Some changes are more difficult than others; some are scary, some are welcomed, and some are for our good. The greatest change agent of all is our Savior Jesus Christ. He changes everything. By grace through faith in Jesus…

Pastor’s Message Dear Friends, It happened again this morning: I went running and I forgot to take water with me. I remembered when I wasn’t more than 100 yards away from home, but instead of taking the time to go back and get the water, I just kept on going. It worked out okay today, but that is not always the way it is. Sometimes when I am out running, I NEED water, especially when I don’t have it with…

Pastor’s Message Hello Friends, Have you noticed that moms are real people? What I mean is, moms not only love, provide, protect, and sacrifice; they also fail, struggle, doubt, get tired, sin, and need a Savior. Thankfully, God has provided a Savior for moms and for the rest of us too! I am blessed to have a whole bunch of “mom memories.” And one of those memories is my mom having home devotions with me as a kid.  She still…

Pastor’s Message Hi Friends, May 3 was National Day of Prayer. Thankfully, we don’t have to wait for a National Day of Prayer to pray. Our Father is always eager and ready to hear our hearts of prayer. God actually commands us to pray and he promises to answer our prayers. Prayer doesn’t create faith – that is what the Holy Spirit creates and works through Word and Sacrament.  Rather, prayer is a barometer of our faith. If the barometric…

Pastor’s Message Dear Friends – Do you remember the story of the paralytic? The one where the four men had a friend who was paralyzed?  They brought him to Jesus for healing. But, when they got to the house Jesus was at, it was packed.  There was no way in to the house except to climb up on the roof and dig through it. So that is what they did. They lowered the man down on a mat to place…
