Freedom Flourishes When We Remember
May 28, 2023 • Pastor Mark Booth
In this series, we look at Paul’s message to Philemon as a simple one: based on the work of love and forgiveness that had been wrought in Philemon’s heart by God, show the same to the escaped and now-believing slave Onesimus. The apostle’s message would have had extra force because he knew Philemon personally. Paul had explained the gospel to Philemon and had witnessed the profound result: new life blossoming in a once-dead heart. Paul knew that conversion is nothing to trifle with but that it should be honored and fostered.
