Philemon 6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
We can better communicate our faith when we understand all that God has done in and through us! People should be able to see in us, also, what God is doing. They should want to know what made us become the kind of person we are.
I want to think through all that He has done. I want to recognize that it is the hand of God in my life. I want to think about and be thankful for His great kindness in me.
I want others to see that He has done a great work in me as well!
As Philemon lived out what God had done in his life the world would know that something very special had taken place.
He is about to be called on to forgive someone who has severely wronged him. If he is able to forgive this horrible wrong it will prove to many that God is at work. It would be completely against his nature and his culture to forgive such an offense.
I want my faith to be evident and I know you do as well. Let’s work at living out what He has done in us!
