Sermons on Philemon
There's no denying that we as people are just plain messy. We mess things up in relationships all the time, and it takes grace to fix them. Listen to the great example we get from Paul in the powerful book of Philemon...and put into practice extending grace towards those in your path.
Paul's letter to Philemon is a wonderful example of how we can apply the gospel to everyday problems. One of the applications we see in this letter relates to relationships, especially those that have conflict. There is a rift in the relationship between Philemon and his slave Onesimus. And Paul wants the two of them to be reconciled. And so he not only encourages reconciliation, he also explains how God empowers that reconciliation. And in doing so, he helps us see how God can empower reconciliation and forgiveness in our own relationships and how God gives us others to encourage us to live in the way God empowers us to live.
Learn by listening how to incorporate the gospel into every detail of daily life.
Listen as Pastor Brad begins the new series "Changed", exploring the changes experienced by Paul, Onesimus, and Philemon revealed in Paul's letter to Philemon. This week, Pastor Brad explores the life of Onesimus
God's power living inside transformed Onesimus from useless to useful. In the same way God has chosen to spill the blood of his own son so that we who were once useless are now useful to him. It's not just an idea -- it's a way of life that changes everything.
In the seventh week of "Magnetic", we take a hard look at ourselves and ask the question, "Will we Invite Others Along?" Will our doors be wide open and invitational to those that are both far from God and off God's mission?
Mark Warren, from Crossroads Christian Church, expounds Paul's letter of love to Philemon, in which the imprisoned apostle pleads on the behalf of their new brother in Christ, and disruptive runaway slave, Onesimus. Can we apply our faith as Philemon was urged to do?
