Most likely, there are people in life we’d rather not forgive. It’s easier to walk away from the relationship. But in the book of Philemon, Paul describes the power of Christ at work to reconcile men and women to Him and to each other.

The Road of ReconciliationBeing reconciled to God not only changes our relationship with Him, but also changes the way we view the world and our relationships with others. The Bible calls Christians to forgive one another as Christ has forgiven each of us – an impossible task apart from the empowering grace of God. As Alistair Begg warns, “we dare not claim to love God, whom we cannot see, if we are failing to love our brother who stands before us plain as day.” When we follow Paul, Philemon, and Onesimus along the road to reconciliation, we see the transforming power of the Gospel at work for the glory of God.
As Christians, the Bible assures us that we have been completely forgiven of every sin: past, present and future. Yet many believers continue to feel weighed down by guilt and shame. Discover why and how to embrace true freedom, on Truth For Life with Alistair Begg! More
