The connection between Colossians and Philemon is pretty cool. I could spend time explaining – but the video does a great job!
Watch the summary from The Bible Project:
- Imagine that you are in the shoes of Onesimus – how are you feeling as you head back?
- Now stand in the shoes of Philemon- how are you feeling as you hear this letter read aloud? Whats going through your mind?
- Paul shows incredible trust in these two men that they would work through their dispute in a way that would bring glory to God. How does being a part of the body transform the power dynamic that exists in our world? How have you seen this played out in your life as a believer?
Sit quietly and ask the Lord to show you your heart in the area of forgiveness and reconciliation.
