Today we’ll look at Paul’s letter to Philemon


So who was Philemon anyway?
Philemon lived in Colosse and like other rich men in his era he was a slave owner. When he was converted and became a believer the members of his household followed him (according to normal practice in that day) that included Onesimus a former runaway slave.
What does Paul’s personal letter to Philemon say to you today.
Suggestions for reading.

1. Read the passage until you feel something spark. Stop there. Write down the verse and meditate on it. What might God be saying to you at this time through His word?

2. Later read through the whole chapter … note down what seems important to you and any questions that the passage raises in you.

3. Leave a comment if you wish to. Be blessed!
