    Forgiving is easy to tell someone else but very hard for each one of us. Forgiving takes the power out of the hands of the offender and allows God to provide healing to you.

  • Runaway Slave

    Contributed by Jeff Riedel on Jun 30, 2014
     | 3,854 views

    This sermon is designed to inspire the reader to include others into our fellowship, regardless of what they once were. We must break down the walls that divide us and have a heart of "inclusion" with everyone we meet.

    Illustration: Many years ago, my wife and I visited my parents in Florida, and we attended my Mother's church. She was relatively new to the congregation but she was proud to have us. As we entered the foyer, she began to introduce us saying, this is my son Jeff and daughter- in- law Rita. ...read more

    A plea for forgiveness to Philemon and to the church today.

    Many of us are aware that much of the New Testament was written by the Apostle Paul. 13 out of the 27 New Testament books are written by Paul.

  • Freedom For The Captives Series

     | 4,653 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

     | 4,735 views

    Paul was good at knowing how to talk to people. He was wise in how he chose his words. The letter he wrote to his friend Philemon is a great example of that. Let’s take a look at how Paul sought to influence his friend to do the right thing.

    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.

    “Full of Use” Philemon vs 11 1. Duct tape is “full of use” consider the not so obvious uses of duct tape. • In case your car overheats, and a hose is busted, duct tape is a temporary form of repair. • Repair cracked windshield/window. • For ...read more
