Freedom Equals Responsibility
Character that Creates
November 25, 2018 • Mark Booth
The greatest legacy that we can pass on to our children, friends or coworkers is not money or possessions or the fact you we are funny or kind. The greatest that we can pass on is a legacy of character and faith. This is exactly what Philemon did in his own life that he was making such difference in the lives of everyone he came in contact with.

This week we look into the book of Philemon, verses 17-20. Where Paul is writing to Philemon, pledging him to accept his servant whom had run away and had been imprisoned in Rome with Paul. If he owes you anything charge it my account and I will pay it. As the family of Jesus we need to expect the debts of others and become the grateful debtor.
Stand in the Gap

The only way to freedom is through humility, personal spiritual disincline, living a life of responsibility and them we come to freedom. If we try to go around all those to get to freedom we end of ups taking our freedom at the cost of every one else and we are always salves to something else.
Right Not Easy

We have all been faced with a situation or a decision in life where we have to do what's right and not always what's easy. These decision take strength on guidance because they can cause pain and strife between you and others involved. Sometimes doing what is right is not the popular decision but it is one that God has called you to make. Think about how many unpopular right decision Jesus made. They were not easy but right.
Being My Best in My Worst Time

How do we become our best in our worst times? See we need to change ourselves so that we look weird to others. When we look weird to the people around us then we know that we are allowing Jesus to rule our life. That is how we being our best during our worst times.

Naturally our world Divides us. Redheads, Blondes, Brunettes, Long Hair, Short Hair, Bald, Tall, Short, Country, Blues, Rock. Everything seeks to divide us. In the last few weeks we have seen the division in the country and it has been horrific. What do you stand for? Will choose a side?

Our culture today says, If you dress right, walk right, act right, driver the right car, wear the right cloths, and right logo and people will look up to you. You know what that is? Its superficial. What Paul is talking about, In this passage today when he says the hearts of the saints have been refreshed. He talks about something much deeper than the cloths that we wear or the have tattoos or don't have tattoos, or the car I drive. In this passage Paul is showing heartfelt affection and his true love for Philemon.

What does family mean to you? Are you closely connected to your family? What about your church family, are you close with them? As we continued in our series Freedom Equals Responsibility we look at Micah 6:1-8 to see what Jesus had done for his family in sharing fair justice and loving in kindness to all.

Have you ever noticed children know when their parents mean something or not. They react by our pitch and tone. They learn that when mom or dad address something a certain way, whether or not they should listen or not. Husbands, you know those times our wives are talking to us and we have tuned them out, yet other times they could be across the room and we could here them. So, Listen Up! Do we take our relationship with Christ the same way. When things are good we tune him out but then there times he has to correct us with his tone or action in our life.

This week we take look back at ours pasts and remember the things that we have been through. We can now look back and recall what God was there to deliver us through, and how he guided to make us the people we are today. Don’t forget your past use it to show other how God has been in control of your life.
