Philemon 7 – Are you a refreshing person?

Today’s Reading: Lamentations 1:1‐2:19, Philemon 1‐25, Psalm 101:1‐8, Proverbs 26:20

Context: In Paul’s brief letter he tells Philemon: “I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective for the full knowledge of every good thing that is in us for the sake of Christ.”

Philemon 7 – “For I have derived much joy and comfort from your love, my brother, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you.”

Observations:

  • Paul has derived much joy and comfort from Philemon’s love
    • because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through him.

A good friend shared with our summer staff this summer that they are to be “Coka-Cola” Christians.  His point was that Christians should be refreshing. 

Apply: I want to look for opportunities to refresh people’s hearts through joy and comfort.

Are you a refreshing person?
