Sunday Service Sneak Peek for August 27, 2017 – Matthew 16:18

It’s unsettling to see the failure and decay in the world around us. It reminds us that the world will one day cease to be, and that we will one day die. Our fearful hearts are calmed when we’re reassured that God cannot fail. In the midst of change, and decay, those connected to God through faith, cannot and will not fail.

Sunday Service Sneak Peek for July 16, 2017 – Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23

The Bible is unlike any other book. It is inspired by God, and was recorded by humans. Since it is God’s Word, it is powerful and efficacious.  In other words, it does what it says.  That’s great news for you and me as we face the ups and downs of daily life. In a world full of lies, God always does what He says. Find out more about Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23 NIV at Victory Lutheran Church on Sunday, July 16, 2017.

Victory Vitamin Blog – Matthew 10:29-31

“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father.  So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”

Matthew 10:29-31 NIV

 

It’s easy to think that God is unconcerned, preoccupied with bigger things, or just generally not mindful of our everyday struggles.  Jesus’ words above should put such foolish notions to rest.  There is nothing remarkable about Sparrows.  Their appearance and song are bland.  They reproduce in high numbers.  And yet, God is mindful of a single sparrow.  He knows where they fly, He knows when they die.  There is nothing in God’s creation that is beyond His concern and control.  God’s eye is on the sparrow, and His eye is on you.  He knows how you feel, and what you need.  Which is why He proved His love and concern by becoming human to pay the price for our sinful rebellion against Him.  When Jesus died, your slate of sins was wiped clean.  Through faith in Jesus, death no longer has the final say.  You will live, after you die, in the perfection of heaven.  Life can be hard.  But don’t be afraid; you are worth more than the half cent sparrow.
