For Paul, the resurrection of Jesus brought peace between God and people. The pursuit of peace becomes an important one, then, for Paul, who repeatedly encourages believers to live at peace with one another. In this sermon we look at the connections between the resurrection and peace and a story in which Paul looks to bring peace to a real-life situation.
Scriptures: I Corinthians 15, Colossians 1:19-20, Philemon
Series Description: Many of our thoughts about faith, church and Jesus come from the writings of Paul. What do we know about Paul the person that can help us understand what he wrote? And what threads and themes do we find over the course of his writings that give us insight into the things Paul valued and prioritized? We’ll think about these questions and others in this four-week series.
