  • Just The Beginning Listen

    Aaron Yoder - April 05, 2021

    Every disciple of Jesus is equipped with the Bible, the Easter story, a living relationship with Jesus and the Holy Spirit.  Together, they form the seeds of the gospel -  seeds which are meant to be sowed within a broken world.  As the memories of Easter fade, let us look again to the mission field right outside of our doors.
  • The Significance of the Resurrection Listen

    Aaron Yoder - April 04, 2021

    What makes the resurrection of Jesus so significant? It confirms Jesus' identity, offers saving grace and clarifies the purpose of Christians, according to Romans 1:4-6. Study with us as we consider these relevant truths and their application for our lives.

    Welcome One Another - Romans 15:1-7
  • Seeing Clearly Through Mercy Listen

    Aaron Yoder - June 03, 2020

    How did Paul go from perpetuating violence to being inspired by the Holy Spirit to write, “bless those who persecute you” (v14), “never avenge yourselves” (v19) and “conquer evil with good” (v21)?
  • Facing The Enemy Listen

    Aaron Yoder - May 31, 2020

    Devotional 6 of 7 on the topic of "Life as Worship" from First Mennonite Church of Morton during the COVID-19 pandemic. What are some ways in which Christians ought to love during this time? Does love even matter in our witness? We consider what God's Word has to say from Romans 12:13-16.
  • Genuine Love Listen

    Aaron Yoder - May 20, 2020

    If love supersedes emotions, how can we better understand it?  Let's consider Romans 12:9-10 with 'Wednesday in the Word.'

  • Part of the Team Listen

    Aaron Yoder - May 13, 2020

    Interdependent communities are part of God’s design for living a life of worship.  If you are a Christian, then you are part of a team.
  • Leaning into Harmony Listen

    Aaron Yoder - May 10, 2020

    Devotional 4 of 7 on the topic of "Life as Worship" from First Mennonite Church of Morton during the COVID-19 pandemic. Scripture makes it clear that God desires His redeemed people to be unified, with one mind and one voice. As impossible as that may sound and difficult to achieve, we consider how the Lord encourages Christians to 'lean into' real, harmonious Christian living through the teaching of the Apostle Paul.
  • Our Greatest Obstacle Listen

    Aaron Yoder - May 06, 2020

    In the context of Christian community, pride must be addressed because it always obstructs relationships – between self and others and between self and God.
  • Dealing With Our Pride Listen

    Aaron Yoder - May 03, 2020

    What prevents there from being joyous harmony between Christians who want to worship the Lord with their lives?  The answer is our individual struggles with pride.  Therefore, the Apostle Paul shares how to put our pride in perspective in the transitional verse in Romans 12:3.  Listen in to learn more!
  • The Accessible Will of God Listen

    Aaron Yoder - April 29, 2020

    When we survey the Scriptures, we’ll notice that there are some complexities about the mountain which is named “God’s will.”
  • Renewing Our Minds Listen

    Aaron Yoder - April 26, 2020

    When should we "blend into the world" for the sake of sharing the gospel and when should we "not conform" as mentioned in Romans 12:2?  Certainly, we need discernment.  Paul instructs the Christians in Rome, and us now, that in order to be discerning people, we need to renew our minds.  What does that mean?  We explore all of this in this devotional.
  • Life As Worship Listen

    Aaron Yoder - April 22, 2020

    When you think of “true worship” what comes to your mind? Of course, such a question is probably shaped by your various religious experiences. But consider this for a moment...
  • In View of God's Mercy Listen

    Aaron Yoder - April 19, 2020

    What kind of worship is "acceptable" to God?  Typically we think of material gifts, music or assembling together in a place.  While those are all wonderful ways to worship, the Lord actually has something much bigger in mind.  Join us as we study Romans 12.
  • Baptism Listen

    Aaron Yoder - October 13, 2019

    What is baptism?  We dig into the tradition of baptism and it's significance for God's people while also answering some of the difficult questions that accompany this important sacrament of The Church.
