Scripture: Philemon-Hebrews 1
Philemon was a leader in the Collossian Church. This is a book, one of the shortest in the Bible, dealing with forgiveness! See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epistle_to_Philemon for more information.
Observation: I love verses 6-7. "I pray that your partnership in the faith might become effective by an understanding of all that is good among us in Christ. I have great joy and encouragement because of your love, since the hearts of God's people are refreshed by your actions, my brother"
Application: Whose actions refresh your heart? Who do you have a partnership with that helps you understand all that is good among us in Christ? Those people are important! Support in the faith is important. Find those people and thank them today. Let them know how important they are! What a witness you could have in just telling people thank you!
God of Glory! Thank you for your infinite blessings! Thank you for the Christians in our lives who support us along the journey. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Amen.
