Victory News – January 10, 2020

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends, Do you ever struggle with comparison? You visit someone’s house and it is beautiful and everything is in order. And then you walk into your house their dishes on the table, the counter top, and a few other places like the kids room, the bathroom and … you feel like a loser. The devil loves it when we compare ourselves to others because there are two options: we think less of ourselves than we should or…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Where am I going? And how am I going to get there? Those are the two questions that we naturally ask this time of the year. It’s the time of the year when people set goals and design a strategy to accomplish them. That’s why we are starting this new sermon series called Seeing 2020. In this series, we are going to discuss making wise decisions about our future as we look at the book of…

MESSAGE OF ENCOURAGEMENT Dear Friends, Did you get the gifts you wanted for Christmas? I worry that the people to whom I gave gifts didn’t get what they wanted. You see, I’m a very practical gift giver; I tend to give people things they need, even if the items aren’t on the top of their “must have” lists. Similarly, people get frustrated with me when I tell them I want things like household appliances and clothes for Christmas. These things,…

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, How’s the New Year started off for you? It has been less than two weeks since we started 2019.  Already, I know of a cancer diagnosis, a potential genetic disorder, two car wrecks, a home repair in the thousands, and many more difficult situations. Life can be overwhelming if we focus in on the what is going on or trying to figure out the why this is happening. And you know what we try to do,…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, New Year’s Resolutions used to be very popular. But, in recent times, New Year’s resolutions have become less and less a part of our lives. I think I know why: because we are tired of failing.  As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem. (Luke 9:51) This verse said in another way: as the time approached for Jesus to be crucified, he resolutely set out for…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear friends, On a scale of one to ten, where would you rate your level of pride in yourself? It won’t be long before pro football players will run, catch, jump up and down, and thump their chests as if to say, “Look at me; I’m the best!” Forgive me, but I don’t see the grocery store bagger going crazy when she packs your plastic bags and set them in your grocery cart. I don’t see sanitation engineers…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Hi Friends – Growing up, I liked the game “tag.” I probably liked “tag” because I was quick and fast. We even had a swimming pool game of tag called “sharks” where people tried to swim across the pool without being tagged. We played it for hours in the hot Texas sun. Okay, I’ll be honest. I still like the game “tag.” Other people, and sometimes in our own minds, we tag ourselves with labels like: broken, loser,…
