Sunday Service Sneak Peek for February 1, 2015 – 1 Corinthians 8:4

Sunday Service Sneak Peek for February 1, 2015 – 1 Corinthians 8:4

The Bible tells us that idols are nothing and that there is only one real God. That has implications not just in terms of the religions of the world, but in the daily lives of those who worship the one true God.  You worship the one true God, I worship the one true God and yet, someone could rightly ask, “What’s your idol?”  In other words, what comes between you and God? Learn more about 1 Corinthians 8:4 this Sunday, February 1st, 2015 at Victory Lutheran Church.

Victory Vitamin Blog – Mark 1:16-18

“As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen.  ‘Come, follow me,’ Jesus said, ‘and I will make you fishers of men.’  At once they left their nets and followed him.”

- Mark 1:16-18 

Some might think that what Jesus asked of these men was a little extreme.  Whether expressed or implied by Jesus, the disciples felt compelled to literally drop everything and follow Him right then and there.  Would you be willing to do that?  Thankfully that’s not what Jesus is asking us to do.  Yes, we are to be His disciples, and the word “disciple” does mean “to follow”, but we are to follow Jesus in His demeanor, His attitude, and His actions.  As 21st century Christians, we cannot literally walk behind Jesus in His footsteps.  Rather, we are to act as He acted.  We are to be humble as Jesus was humble, thinking first of others, and considering their needs.  We follow Jesus today by serving others and not just ourselves.  We follow Jesus today by being obedient to God’s commands just as Jesus was obedient to the will of His father when He willingly accepted the mission of coming to earth and dying as payment for our sins.  It’s because of the forgiveness and eternal life we have in Him, that we commit ourselves to following Jesus today through humility, service, and obedience.  The disciples of Jesus contributed to the spread of God’s kingdom in their day.  Now it’s your turn!

Sunday Service Sneak Peek for January 25, 2015 – Mark 1:17

Jesus called disciples early in His ministry so that He could teach them, and so that they could assist Him.  We are disciples, and we are to go and make disciples of others.  So, what does it mean to follow Jesus today? Learn more about Mark 1:17 this Sunday, January 25, 2015 at Victory Lutheran Church.
