Sunday Service Sneak Peek for September 2, 2018 – Ephesians 6:11

The world is a dangerous place both to our bodies and to our souls. Thankfully God gives us spiritual armor to protect us from anyone and anything that seeks damage our faith or separate us from our Savior. Join us this Sunday, September 2, 2018 at Victory Lutheran Church.

Victory Vitamin Blog – Mark 7:6

“These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.” 

Mark 7:6 NIV

 

Jesus was talking about the Pharisees here.  They were all show and no go.  They liked to dress the part and walk around judging other people for not being holy enough.  Does that sound like some Christians today?  There are the cliché’s, “Less talk, more action.”  “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”  Words are words but where’s the heart?  Where’s the concern, where’s the compassion.  Jesus came into the world with one mission, to die to pay for the sins of the people He loves.  Yeah, He talked too, but His mission was primarily one of action.  He displayed His love by dying as our substitute.  In response, we worship God not just with our words, but with our lives.  One saying puts in this way: “Preach the Good News everywhere you go.  If necessary, use words.”  The Holy Spirit lives in your heart, filling it with the love of Christ.  Get out there and empty it on someone.

Sunday Service Sneak Peek for August 26, 2018 – Mark 7:6

Our culture is currently obsessed with appearances.  Take a look at all the photo filters and effects available in our apps.  It’s not about reality, it’s about appearances.  Sadly, many feel the same way about their religion.  So long as they look good to others and appear to be holy, it’s all good.  Jesus begs to differ.  He is less concerned about appearances, and more concerned about the state of one’s heart.
