When Jesus’ disciples answered his call to come and follow him, they not only entered into a relationship with Jesus but also joined the community of Christ-followers. We are not called to be lone ranger disciples who go alone, but rather are called and gifted to be fully devoted, active, and engaged members of the body of Christ.
Pastor Josh leads us through an exegetical study of Paul’s letter to Philemon. Paul exhorts Philemon on the basis of love to welcome, to forgive, and to love Onesimus as a brother in Christ, even though he has wronged him. Today, like Philemon, we are called to live lives of love and forgiveness, as we realize that we have been so loved and forgiven by Christ.
