In chapter 3 of Paul’s letter to the new church in Colosse, he urges these new believers to leave their former life behind, and to live a new life in Christ. For Jesus is not merely interested in changing our theology, but radically changes us completely, from the inside out. We are now, therefore, to live new lives that reflect his image!
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.
