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.
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.

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.
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!
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.
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.
