Attitudes for Elders & All of Us In Service - Galen Yoder

5/16/2021
Our attitude affects us, but it also affects those around us. We do have something to say in our current attitudes. There is a lot of teaching here that applies to everyone in the church, not just Elders. 1 Peter 5:1-4 – Peter first reminds his readers that he is qualified to talk to them […] The post Attitudes for Elders & All of Us In Service appeared first on Bethel Mennonite Church.

Dealing With Difficult Relationships - Ricky Bowman

5/9/2021
We all know that good relationships make life much more enjoyable. In 1 John 4 we get a clear picture and reminder that our love for each other and our love for God are very much connected.

The Mysteries Found in Ephesians - Milo Zehr

5/2/2021
Ephesians is full of lofty ideas. Sometimes they are ideas that dig deep inside. Our focus this morning is on three mysteries that are discussed in Ephesians. The Mystery of God’s Redemption in Christ Ephesians says quite a bit about redemption in Christ.

How Should I Be Using the Time I Have Left? - Galen Yoder

4/25/2021
Peter talks about a number of things but keeps coming back to the theme of a limited amount of time, there is an end coming. The question then is how should I be using the time I have left?

The Inner Dynamic That Motivates Kingdom Morality - John D Martin

4/18/2021
We are so worried about a works religion that we don’t want to talk about practical things. What are we doing with our stuff? What are we doing with this world? The goal of true religion is perfection and God loves people who are patiently pursuing that goal. Do you have a passion for being […] The post The Inner Dynamic That Motivates Kingdom Morality appeared first on Bethel Mennonite Church.

Christian Piety - First Things First - John D Martin

4/18/2021
Matthew 5 deals with moral issues, chapter 6 deals with Christian piety and the spiritual aspects of our lives. Matthew 6:16-18 – Jesus assumes that we will fast, He says, “when you fast.” The Jews were really involved in fasting. To the Jews, fasting was a sign of repentance. The senses are heightened during fasting. […] The post Christian Piety – First Things First appeared first on Bethel Mennonite Church.

The Ideal Resistance - John D Martin

4/17/2021
Tonight we are talking about resistance against evil, and against those who harm us. Unlimited love was definitely shadowed within the Old Testament.

Eliminating Our Enemies - John D Martin

4/16/2021
The law was intended for our well-being. God mercifully telling His people how to live. God created the universe, He was telling man right upfront how the universe should be worked with. Man needs law, our wills are lazy. We need the reminder that we need to do some things. We are clever at making […] The post Eliminating Our Enemies appeared first on Bethel Mennonite Church.

The World is Not a Friend to Grace - John D Martin

4/15/2021
Joy is the infallible evidence of God’s grace in life. The beatitudes don’t leave us staring at the heavens but at a scared and messed up humanity. The Lord really wants to perfect us. We empty ourselves to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Does the Spirit get all of you when you become a […] The post The World is Not a Friend to Grace appeared first on Bethel Mennonite Church.

Characteristics of the Newly Reborn - John D Martin

4/14/2021
Jeremiah 10:23 – Right action isn’t intuitive, it doesn’t make sense to forgive, to give your extra money away, to turn the other cheek. Jesus bases His Kingdom on a radically transformed character. Matthew 5 – Did you ever wonder why the sermon on the mount doesn’t start with the new birth? The beatitudes are […] The post Characteristics of the Newly Reborn appeared first on Bethel Mennonite Church.

What is the Kingdom of God - John D Martin

4/13/2021
God has given us desires, we need to know how to use these desires properly, but the desires themselves are from God. The problem with these desires is that the devil takes these desires and perverts it. God’s righteous rule is just, and kind, and good, and right. The problem is that the gospel is […] The post What is the Kingdom of God appeared first on Bethel Mennonite Church.

Little Things - Humble Like A Little Child - John Waldron

4/11/2021
The issue with a fishhook in the finger is not the fishhook so much as the barb on the end of the fishhook. This little tiny barb makes all the difference in the world! If you have something in your eye, it doesn’t need to be very big at all to potentially do a lot […] The post Little Things – Humble Like A Little Child appeared first on Bethel Mennonite Church.

There Will Be Opposition - Leon Yoder

3/28/2021
Ephesians 6:10-20 – We won’t be specifically talking about the armor that is covered here.

Who Can Harm You? - Galen Yoder

3/14/2021
1 Peter 3:13-17 – Peter asks a rhetorical question here, and the implied answer is “No one.” The whole letter from Peter kind of expects persecution, he is writing to people who are in the middle of suffering. Peter is saying that there is a sense in which no one can harm God’s children. We know […] The post Who Can Harm You? appeared first on Bethel Mennonite Church.

God's Order of Headship in 1 Corinthians 11 - Rich Bowman

1/24/2021
1 Corinthians 11 – Paul was addressing this issue because he felt like it needed attention.
