Philemon is a letter addressing the importance of forgiveness and reconciliation, a challenge to extend radical hospitality to someone who doesn't deserve it.

1. Is there anyone in your life to whom you need to extend forgiveness?
2. Are you willing to deal with the mess involved in healing the relationship in order to bring about a new harvest?
3. Paul is calling Philemon to have Koinonia (Christian fellowship) with Onesimus. What would it take for you to have fellowship with the person or people that have hurt or harmed you?
4. For Philemon to give Onesimus refrigerator rights would have been considered radical hospitality. What would it look like in your home if you lived with radical hospitality? Would it change who sits at your table and opens your fridge door?
5. What steps can you take to live this out in your home?

Clarify:
Does anyone need clarity on something? Are there any big God questions you are wrestling with?

Celebrate:
Celebrate life’s successes and God’s provision. Worship God’s presence. Time to brag about God.
PRAYER OF SALVATION
Jesus, I believe you came because you love us, you died on the cross because you love us and you rose again because you desired to make a way for me to be with you now and in Heaven. I am sorry for sinning and going my own way, please forgive me. God be the King of my life, I invite you right now to come and change my heart and life. Amen
If you prayed the Prayer of Salvation, do these three things:
1. Tell someone that you started a relationship with Jesus Christ.
2. Talk to God and tell him about your life. Just talk to him like you would to a friend because HE is your friend,
3. Check out that reading plan above (Click on the "First Steps" image above).
