Footsteps of Jesus, Come Follow Me - Delvin Yoder

9/26/2021
Matthew 16:4 – Jesus often used the phrase “follow me” when he was inviting people to be His disciple. If we want to be followers of Jesus we should watch how He lived and take up His cross, the life He has for us, and follow Him. We are all “little” in God’s sight. Jesus […] The post Footsteps of Jesus, Come Follow Me appeared first on Bethel Mennonite Church.

Trusting God With Your Treasure - Leon Yoder

9/19/2021
Matthew 6:19-34 – So, what is a treasure? A dictionary would say it is wealth, money, jewels, stored up. Something of great worth and value. For this message we’ll say, a treasure is “that which is valued most, desired most, is most dear to us.” Earthly treasure is temporary. It will perish. There are many […] The post Trusting God With Your Treasure appeared first on Bethel Mennonite Church.

Keeping the Right Focus When Church is in a Lurch - Gabriel Yoder

9/5/2021
Distractions are everywhere. Have you ever started on something, got half way and then got hung up on some details? The enemy is constantly looking for ways to defeat the work that God is doing in the local church.

Grace & Works - Delvin Yoder

8/29/2021
God has a reason for salvation, and grace needs to be worked out and expressed in the way that we live. A new Christian can sleep well at night, his sins are forgiven, he can be secure in God’s grace. Yes, there are things to do, but he can rest in Christ. We as humans […] The post Grace & Works appeared first on Bethel Mennonite Church.

3 Characteristics of Profitable, Useful Servants of Jesus - Leon Yoder

8/22/2021
Philemon 1:1-25 – Onesimus, the slave of Philemon was suddenly gone. He didn’t show up, he had run away. Even before running away Onesimus was already a disappointment, he wasn’t a very good servant.

The Faithfulness of God to His People - Galen Yoder

8/15/2021
2 Timothy 2 – When we talk about God being absolutely faithful we mean it is an absolute truth, it isn’t going to change. There is no circumstance or factor that changes this truth. If we endure, we will also reign with Him. God does have a plan for us, this plan is in the […] The post The Faithfulness of God to His People appeared first on Bethel Mennonite Church.

The View from the Cross - Delvin Yoder

8/8/2021
Grace is what God does… faith, belief, these are the things that are part of our “mustard seed” response to God’s offer. If we respond in faith it results in a “new birth” or the “beginning of the salvation journey.” One thing that is a common thread between the newest most immature babe in Christ, […] The post The View from the Cross appeared first on Bethel Mennonite Church.

Can We Believe Romans 8:28? - Steve Yoder

Romans 8:28 – This is probably one of the most well-known verses in the Bible, right up there with John 3:16. What does it mean for us?

An Invitation to Come to Jesus, Just As You Are - Leon Yoder

7/25/2021
Whosoever will may come. Whoever desires to, is invited to come to Jesus. These are great invitations, Jesus says that few will respond to his invitation. We’ve sung the song “Just As I Am” many times. Though it is often sung at revival meetings, it seems like it is applicable to all of a Christians […] The post An Invitation to Come to Jesus, Just As You Are appeared first on Bethel Mennonite Church.

1 Thessalonians 5:11-15 – These are instructions to every member of the church in Thessalonica to comfort one another. Always pursue what is good for both yourselves and for all.

Difficulties, Circumstances, Weakness and Their Affect On Our Service to Christ - Galen Yoder

6/13/2021
What was Paul’s thorn in the flesh? There are several ideas, but it seems to be some kind of “bodily ailment.” What does God mean by “weakness?” When God says that His grace is made perfect in weakness He isn’t talking about character flaws. God can do more through weak people. God’s power can do […] The post Difficulties, Circumstances, Weakness and Their Affect On Our Service to Christ appeared first on Bethel Mennonite Church.

A Gentle Might Under God's Control - John Waldron

6/6/2021
It isn’t that we’re so strong, it is that we are under God’s control and choose to be gentle no matter what situation we find ourselves in. We often think of cowardly, weakness, etc when talking about meekness, but that isn’t the real definition of meekness. If you care deeply about something you’ll find your […] The post A Gentle Might Under God’s Control appeared first on Bethel Mennonite Church.

Matthew 6:9-15 – We know that God’s will is not done on earth as it is in heaven… so how does this prayer even begin to be answered? A lack of cooperation is a trait of untrained, unbroken horses. They are big and strong and can be dangerous if they are not under control. To […] The post A Conflict of Wills for Horses, Christians, Children appeared first on Bethel Mennonite Church.

The Answer to Separation from God and Hopelessness - Redemption - Gabriel Yoder

5/23/2021
It starts in Genesis. In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth… God saw it all, and it was good! After Adam and Eve sinned, entropy began. Everything that has order, moves towards chaos. The only way to maintain that order is through an intelligent outside force.

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.
