002: An Answer For America

An Answer For America

Well, mid-term elections are over and if you’re Republican you’re somewhat happy. But not so fast! Was this the answer America needed? Are we expecting things to turn around just because the names on a few offices changed? Is it enough, or too little too late?

In this podcast, I bring you a message I preached here at Victory Assembly entitled:


I want to share with you the TRUE answer America needs if she is ever going to survive!

Due to the length it has been broken down into 2 parts.

4 Ways To Waste Your Day (& Your Life!)

4 Ways To Waste Your Day

There’s a thought that’s been going over and over in my head for some time: “How Many Days Have I Wasted?” I want my life to count! I’m not talking about being remembered on earth for some great achievement necessarily. But for eternity – the bigger picture – the place it TRULY matters.

001: Not Today

Not Today

John 8:10-11

10  When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

11  She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

What a powerful response from Jesus! What mercy and grace! But what about the law and justice and righteousness? Doesn’t someone need to be found guilty? 

This woman was obviously guilty of adultery. They caught her in the very act! So why didn’t Jesus condemn her? You might say, “It’s because He chose to be merciful.” That’s wonderful except for one fact: He’d have to break His own law to do that!

Did the woman deserve justice or mercy? Find out in this episode!

Just Say The Word!

True faith ALWAYS involves risk! It’s never comfortable, easy, or convenient. It isn’t measured by what we maintain, but rather by what we are willing to risk for Jesus.

Just Say The Word

Matthew 14:22-29

22  And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away. 23  And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. 24  But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. 25  And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. 26  And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. 27  But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. 28  And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. 29  And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

We like to envision a faith that’s neatly wrapped up like a little lamb in the arms Jesus. No danger, nothing uncomfortable, and never a struggle. We would be thrilled if our journey here resembled a leisurely boat ride surrounded by Disney characters singing “It’s A Small World After All”.

Truth is, our earthly life for now is still a matter of trust and obedience.  It’s not free from danger or free of the possibility of sinking down into the storms of life.

Most people, upon reading the Bible passage above, take to criticizing Peter for sinking (which admittedly I’ve been guilty of as well). Very few turn to examine the faithless group of shivering disciples left in the boat. If anyone deserves closer scrutiny it would be them, but why? Isn’t Peter the one who sank? Yes, but they chose to sit – Peter walked!


For every one that escapes the mediocrity of the crowd and attempts something for Christ, there’s eleven others with their posteriors plastered to the planks of their little flotation device.

We tend to spend more energy rewarding those who play it safe than those who risked something. We shout out accolades upon those who never compromised and never “lost out”. While I’m certainly not advocating a sloppy, half-hearted faith, there’s more that’s expected of us. Truth is:


You can stay behind and be safe, or you can walk on water and risk sinking. We like to sit back, turn our noses up, and pass judgment on those who only made it a few steps on the water. Tell me again how many steps you’ve taken upon the raging ocean?


That was Peter’s response to seeing Jesus walking on the water (ok, his exact words were, “just bid me come”, but you get the picture.) “Say the word Jesus and I’ll give it a shot!” It really comes down to OBEDIENCE. Jesus is calling us to risk something for His name, but we cannot accomplish that in the safety of the boat.


“Come.” That’s it. This one word from Jesus was all Peter needed to hear. If Jesus was in it – he was stepping out. That’s still The Lord’s word to you today – “come.”

Revelation 22:17

17  And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

What are you willing to risk for eternity? Are you willing to leave mediocrity and the eleven cowards behind? You might even sink for a moment, but you’ll always know what it feels like to walk on the water!
