Yesterday was yet another powerful family time in the presence of the Lord at Victory!
God is among us – in the house and doing a great work! 4 more brothers and sisters crossed the line of faith yesterday to declare Jesus Christ the Savior and Lord of their lives. It’s always exciting to be able to report things like that.
I feel like we are in the front edge of a “book of Acts” outpouring – already seeing “people saved and added to the church daily.” Your family and friends are trusting Jesus, receiving life transformation and their testimonies of change are bringing people in their networks/friendships. It just continues rolling. I look out over the crowd every Sunday and see so many new faces. Forgive me if it gets old hearing it, but I’m honestly overwhelmed at all that the Lord is doing in and through our lives right now.
Psalms 110:3 says, “Your people will be willing in the day of your power.” That day is here and like an intensifying “rising sun,” it is consistently emerging at Victory. Along with the outpouring of the power of the Holy Spirit, we are seeing so many “willing” to serve on this growing team to reap the Delta for Christ and advance the Kingdom of God. It was “way cool” seeing new members coming in at Victory yesterday and most of them wearing SERVE shirts. That is awesome! People are coming and aren’t waiting a long time before they decide to participate in teamwork.
Passion for Jesus is increasing as our worship experiences continue to grow in depth. The blend of both new and old music along with Greg’s originals provides the Victory congregation with something that is completely unique to this area. Greg’s new “Strong Tower” song blew me away yesterday.
The Spirit of God brings life and creativity. Each of us is called by God to take the seed of His word engrafted into our souls and produce a Kingdom expression, unique to us as individuals in our time, talent and treasure.
You may not be called to write music, but you are called to “translate Kingdom truth” into the everyday work world. That injection of God’s life can take the mundane and ordinary of our daily existence and set it on fire with His own presence!
The new expansion is almost finished – we’ll be using it to “train up” the next generation of Kingdom leaders in just a few days. Exciting! Again, it amazes me to think that in the last 12 months, because of the outpouring of the Sprit of God, Victory has literally doubled. It was only a few months ago that during worship, we had adults and children both in a sanctuary that wasn’t full. Now, we see the sanctuary at capacity with adults only and all our children’s ministry rooms spilling over. The Victory tribe is increasing!
Don’t forget our Fall Outreach – “Screen on the Green” this Saturday at 6:30p at Worthington Park in West Memphis. We’ll be showing “The Princess and the Frog,” a great Disney family movie and giving away refreshments. Invite your friends to this family event and call the church office if you can “put on a SERVE shirt” and help us at this event.
