When you have wronged someone, is it hard for them to forgive you? Forgiveness. In Paul's shortest epistle, only 334 words in the Greek text, Paul appeals to Philemon to forgive Onesimus and to regard him no longer as a slave but as a brother in Christ. Paul was in prison in Rome and wrote this plea letter in A.D. 60 or 61. Philemon was a Colosse resident and like Onesimus was a convert of Paul's too. We realize that as Philemon restores Onesimus to himself on account of Paul's plea from prison, it is like God restoring us when we commit sin and Jesus standing in on our behalf for that restoration. Onesismus was condemned by the law but saved by grace. As true forgiveness comes when something has either happened against you or you committed something against someone else, the love of God begins to be revealed. If there is someone you need to seek forgiveness from or if you need to forgive someone, don't wait. The Bible says that until we forgive our brothers their trespasses, Christ won't forgive ours.

Our Father Who art in Heaven,
May Your Words of Your Bible that we have placed on this Online Bible site, minister to all that come to read it. May their eyes and ears be opened to what it is that You desire for them to know. As they read Philemon, please minister to them in a way only You know how to. May the Words come alive in their hearts as they yield themselves to what it is You have for them. Thank You Heavenly Father for sending Your One and Only Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins. Thank You for making a way for us to gain salvation. May all that hear, believe; so they too may have eternal life. Praise Your Holy Name, Lord!
In Jesus Christ Name, we pray
