Follow The Lord's Truth

Apostle Paul wrote kindly to Philemon and gently reminded his dear friend about his responsibility as a believer in Christ Jesus.  

Philemon's slave, Onesimus, had to run away and find Paul to learn the Gospel.  Paul said how he prayed for Philemon to share his faith with others and when Onesimus returned, he must treat him like a brother in the Lord.

The letter Paul wrote to Philemon is a great example of Christ's love in action.  Paul loved his friend but did not approve of the way he treated his slave, so this problem was very diplomatically pointed out.  

When Christians truly follow Christ's lead, they become loving, fair and confident in the truth.  The real truth is not what the world says, but what the Lord declares, which are usually opposites.
