  • Paul's Postcard To Philemon

    Contributed by Jason Smith on Sep 25, 2013
     | 3,858 views

    Philemon is a very short epistle (a postcard). But as short as it is, there are many great lessons we can learn from it.

    Introduction Philemon was a member of the church in Colossae (cf. Col 4.9). He seems from our text to be somewhat wealthy; he was a slave-owner; it also seems that the church met in his house if those mentioned in verse 2 are members of his household as most assume. Philemon was a faithful ...read more

    How to make your faith effective; so that you won't be caught in the trap of unbelief. Your life can be full of the living experiences of God's Word. The scriptures will no longer become a story but a living testimony when you master the act of faith.

    "That the communication of your faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus." (Philemon 1:6). The Greek word for EFFECTUAL is ENERGEO: It means to be in active operation, to produce effects, or to be powerfully productive. That means ...read more

  • Restoring Relationships

    Paul's letter to Philemon gives us solid timeless principles in restoring broken relationships. As Paul paid for Onesimus' sin, so Christ pays for ours, thus restoring us to God. Because we have been forgiven much, we need to forgive others.

    Philemon Restoring Relationships I’d like to take a little survey this morning: Who here has never had a relationship challenge? Ah ha, I thought so. Today’s subject “Restoring Relationships,” is for all of us. As we seek to live a Christian life, does our faith have ...read more

    The word Onesimus means "useful" and that is what we become when we are repaired, when we forgive, when we do not give up, and when we encounter the Gospel.

  • Freedom For The Captives Series

    Contributed by Chris Appleby on Feb 23, 2015
    based on 1 rating
     | 4,693 views

    Paul's whole plea to Philemon is to act the way the loving Father acted: to welcome home the beloved son; to restore him to fellowship with the family. There will be, and have been, occasions when we'll be called to respond to wrongdoers the same way.

    There's something quite different about reading this letter compared with all Paul's other letters. In all the others, even those addressed to individuals, the focus is on the Church where they're ministering. But here there's a much more personal feel to the correspondence. You can feel the warmth ...read more
