Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we start and finish the book of Philemon with Chapter 1 and in our text we see Paul writing this letter to Philemon asking him to forgive Onesimus and restore him as a new Christian brother as he ran away from his problems to see that he just needed Christ. In making application we see many try to run away from their problems by seeking the world or sin to see that Jesus is the answer for all they need. How about you? Are you running from your problems? Let us learn from our text today and the letter from Paul to Philemon to forgive Onesimus as he ran from His problem to see that the answer to His problem and all of ours is found in Jesus-Christ.
