Over the past week I’ve worked my way through the book of Philemon. It’s been good to put up nuggets of truth from this short book of the bible. To consider the people that Philemon spent his time with and the love he held for fellow believers. It’s good to see that love and to be reminded that we too should have a great love for our fellow believers.
Then to see Paul’s heart… oh… he loved Onesimus and yet he chose to send this loved helper back to Philemon. He also had the confidence that Philemon would do what was right, take him back and love him as a fellow believer. Paul closes off Philemon reminding me that we are not to be believers in isolation, but a people working together.
