Philemon: The Power of the Gospel in Relationships
Philemon is one of the shortest New Testament books. But don't let its size fool you. In 25 glorious verses, the Apostle Paul appeals to Philemon to receive back his slave, Onesimus, as a brother in Christ. As Philemon interacts with Onesimus, the gospel of Jesus Christ -- not past offense, position, or power -- should govern their relationship. Philemon is a call for forgiveness and reconciliation, made possible only by the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
