- The book of Philemon is between Apostle Paul’s letter to the Titus and the book of Hebrews
- It has only one chapter and twenty-five (25) verses
- God used Apostle Paul to bring Philemon to Christ. After his conversion, the wealthy Philemon was very faithful to God through his service to other brethren
- Onesimus was a slave serving Philemon. Onesimus stole and ran away from Colossae to Rome
- As God would have it, Onesimus encountered Apostle Paul and he gave his life to Christ. He became a Christian brother.
- Apostle Paul wrote a very powerful and appealing letter to Philemon asking him to receive Onesimus back, not only as a slave but also as a Christian brother.
- Apostle Paul was determined to repay whatever Onesimus have stolen from Philemon. He was determined to re-establish the broken relationship between Philemon and Onesimus.
This month, make it a duty to re-unite brethren who have fallen apart for blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God (Matthew 5:9)
