Isaiah

  • Renewing Our Strength Listen

    Aaron Yoder - February 09, 2021

    Daniel's entire adulthood was spent living in a pagan county serving pagan leaders.  Yet, he remained fiercely committed to the Lord.  How did he run the race of faith with such integrity and perseverance?  Perhaps it is because he knew how to renew this strength by waiting upon the Lord.
  • Strengthened By Waiting Listen

    Aaron Yoder - February 07, 2021

  • Authority of God Listen

    Tom Linderman - January 31, 2021

    Isaiah 40:12-26
  • The Flock of God Listen

    Aaron Yoder - January 26, 2021

    The Lord knows when we need to be carried or gently led.  Our spiritually maturing ‘legs’ can only carry us so far in this difficult world.  That is where the church, as the flock of God, can participate in the work of the Good Shepherd.
  • Powerful and Tender Listen

    Aaron Yoder - January 24, 2021

    The Lord knows how to perfectly lead as both a powerful king and a tender shepherd. When we are tempted to despair, God's people need reminders of both of those attributes. Study God's Word with us at First Mennonite Church of Morton in this part 3 of 5 messages in Isaiah 40.
  • Eternally Significant Listen

    January 19, 2021

    Each one of us want to be part of something truly significant.  However, this desire can easily morph into self-exalting living, grasps at worldly control, or a false belief that right now is 'unprecedented' because we are part of it.  Instead, Christians should think soberly and remain focused furthering the Kingdom of God which is ‘not of this world.’
  • Our Weakness & His Word Listen

    Aaron Yoder - January 17, 2021

    There is great comfort to be found when we admit our human weakness and instead cling to the trustworthy and relevant promises of God. Join us at First Mennonite Church of Morton in part 2 of our 5-week series finding 'Comfort in God.'
  • Comforted By Forgiveness Listen

    Aaron Yoder - January 12, 2021

    When humans pursue life apart from God’s leading, all that’s left is rottenness, emptiness and a path of heart-breaking ruin.  Now, we may not always be able to avoid the consequences of our sin, but we never have to fear that God will leave us in our sin.
  • Taking Comfort In His Message Listen

    Aaron Yoder - January 10, 2021

  • The Wounded Seeker Listen

    Aaron Yoder - July 28, 2019

    What happened on the cross?  Not only did Jesus die, but he also accomplished a work that needed to be done in order to reconcile a Holy God with rebellious humanity.  Today, we study the complexity and beauty of the cross through Isaiah 52 & 53.
  • The Hospitable Seeker Listen

    Aaron Yoder - July 14, 2019

    Who is the hospitality of God for and how can His people remember to remain in it and show it from day-to-day?  We consider the hospitable nature of God by studying Isaiah 56 (and parts of Isaiah 55).
  • His Kingdom Will Not End Listen

    Aaron Yoder - December 30, 2018

  • Mighty God Listen

    Aaron Yoder - December 16, 2018

  • Wonderful Counselor Listen

  • The Holy One Listen

    Aaron Yoder - December 17, 2017

    Aaron Yoder - December 03, 2017

    Where can we turn to for hope and comfort when our world is crumbling apart?  The Prophet Isaiah wrote Isaiah 40 so that it would be applied to God's people during a time of despair.  We look at verses 1-5 to anchor our hope in the promise of Jesus.
