The Fellowship of the Saints: God’s One Family (Philemon 1-7)

Paul’s letter to Philemon deals with the theme of reconciliation and depicts God’s people in Christ as a family that can receive and restore even a runaway slave and a thief. We will see how Paul appeals to Philemon to demonstrate the power of the gospel by welcoming Onesimus back, no longer as a slave, but as a beloved brother. In this sermon, pastor Keith looks at Paul’s greeting and reminds us that in the fellowship of the saints, our faith is to express itself in love toward others.
