 We’re running a bit ahead of schedule this week for Luke 16, so we thought it would be a good time to take a look at Paul’s epistle to Philemon. 509 more words

Christianity

Philemon 14-22

In verse 14 Paul tells Philemon how he wants him to act willingly so that his “benefit” or goodness won’t be by compulsion. When we are forced to do what is right there is basically no virtue in it, but when we do it willingly we have a reward. 527 more words

Relationships are an important part of our lives. Love is what makes relationships work properly. People have romantic relationships and family relationships, but Christians have a spiritual relationship that has no parallel in the world. 233 more words

Hello, my name is not Anonymous, it’s Tyler G. Sawyer, and this is my blog.

Philemon 7-9

We see the importance of love throughout this letter. Paul mentions his joy in Philemon’s love. We can’t see love itself, but we can see it concretely demonstrated. 340 more words

恩惠与平安 [Grace and Peace]

书卷:腓利门书(新约)
作者:保罗

腓利门书3节:“愿恩惠、平安从上帝我们的父和主耶稣基督归于你们!”

今日默想:基督徒乃是得享上帝恩典的人。恩典乃是一件礼物,人凭着自己没有方法可以获得,因为人没有什么功绩配受恩典。恩典是平安之源,平安是恩典之果。人不先求上帝的恩典而想得到上帝的平安,这是不可能的。我们不该在上帝之外求平安。真平安的快捷方式乃是遵行上帝的旨意。

Philemon 4-6

Paul thanks God for Philemon; he doesn’t thank Philemon for him. Thanks for people is ultimately due to the one responsible for what they are. We should thank God for the believers in our lives. 395 more words
