The Prison Epistles
Sun, Aug 31, 2014
Duration:46 mins 52 secs
How do we respond to being wronged? Do we seek retribution, restitution, justice? In this passage of scripture a former slave, Onesimus, while on the run for theft from his master, Philemon, runs into the Apostle Paul and comes to faith in Christ. With this personal letter from Paul, we see the gospel of reconciliation and restoration on display. As much as we have been wronged, we have never been wronged as much as we have wronged Christ.

Contentment...not a popular buzz word in our society, but Biblically there is a connection between goodliness and contentment. From a prison cell, the Apostle Paul in his closing comments address' the need for our hearts to be focused, above, on others, and on eternity, not ourselves. The key to contentment is a satisfaction in Christ!

The Apostle Paul, from prison, is encouraging the Philippian believers to be united in the Spirit; but what do you do when you run into or are the subject of strife or Spirit-quenching drama within the church? Our tendency is to murmur and complain, or run and retaliate...the answer is to go to the cross where we have sinned or sins have been committed against us and repent and or forgive, and see the grace and love of Jesus cover that situation. We are called as Christians to "work out what God is working in us."

Join Pastor Ben Hiwale for one of the most familiar but misunderstood portions of scripture in Phil. 1:21. "For to me to live is Christ, and to die is grain." Spiritual growth doesn't come to us on rainbows and glittering unicorns, it comes to us through trials, pain, and suffering. Only Christ is worth living for and dyeing about you?

Join Pastor Ray Viola for a deep word on motives and the Sovereignty of God. Why do we serve Jesus? Is it for recognition or the fame of the Lord? The way we are noticed or unnoticed is a great indicator. God's refinement has a way of showing us our hearts, may all that is seen be for the glory of HIS great Name!
