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.
Where should we turn when we are fatigued by life? What or who can renew our deepest strength? Join us at First Mennonite Church as we learn about 'waiting for the Lord' in this series conclusion from Isaiah 40.
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.
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.
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.’
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.'
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.
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.
What God-honoring commitments can been seen through the life of Joseph, the husband of Mary? How do those commitments point us to our Heavenly Father? We look at the concept of fatherhood (or leadership in general), before considering why we need an 'everlasting Father' in Heaven.
How does Scripture and your life point to the Might and Power of God? We focus on Isaiah's description on the Messiah being Mighty and how we can grow, during this advent season, to continue to exalt the might of our God.
What essential truths do we need to persevere in our walk with the Lord or find strength in this world? We look at two truth, as found in the last part of Isaiah 40 and lived out by Anna ben Phanuel and Mary, mother of Jesus.
What is the nature of the God we worship at Christmas? Like so many, we can carry misconceptions of God into our understanding of Jesus and miss His divinity. We look at God's character through Isaiah 40 and the magi as they experienced the star.
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.
