A slave runs away from his master. A mutual friend steps in to
mediate between the two of them. Can there be healing in such a
scarred relationship? In the face of such a daunting breach, is
reconciliation (not to what was, but to what God designed) even
possible? This is the situation faced in the book of Philemon. From
this short New Testament letter, pastor and author Dhati Lewis
(Among Wolves) unpacks key principles that Paul applied to being an
advocate in the midst of division. The divisions of our day don't
look the same as Paul's, but the principles are timeless. In 2
Corinthians 5, God commissioned us to be his ambassadors and gave
us the ministry of reconciliation. Whether we're engaging in issues
of politics, ethnicity, or religious beliefs, our heart posture
should be one of an advocate set on reconciliation. The problem is,
too many of us approach difficult conversations with the heart of
an aggravator. Aggravators sometimes look like they are pursuing
good things, but their heart is not toward reconciliation. Any
motive less than reconciliation falls short of the desires of God's
heart. We need godly advocates in every sphere of life. This book
will specifically apply these principles to issues of ethnic
division. Are you willing to call any division caused by
discrimination, prejudice, or racism a sin? Do you want to grow in
your ability to navigate tense and emotional conversations about
ethnic divisions? Are you ready to become an advocate?
