November 6, 2015 • Philemon
Philemon might be a short book, but it’s a powerful letter. In it the Apostle Paul begins to expose the incompatible nature of slavery (a commonly accepted practice of his day) for faithful followers of Jesus Christ. Through his letter to Philemon, Paul challenges people of faith to live unprecedented lives for the gospel, sacrificing what society and culture might say we’re due in favor of Christ’s love and grace. Join us as we discover how this memo from Paul to Philemon redefines the body of Christ and challenges us to live a difficult kind of love.
