4/30/17 Paul Thanks God For Philemon

Paul continues dictating his letter.  “Whenever I pray, I thank God for you, because I have heard of your faith in our Lord Jesus and your love for Him and for all of our brothers and sisters in Him.  I pray that the work that you are doing in faith will produce much fruit among all of our Colossian brothers and sisters, that you all would grow in your faith and in relationship with each other through Jesus, and in relationship with Jesus through your Christian love for each other.  Because of the work you are engaged in through the love in your heart for your brothers and sisters in the faith, you give all of us great joy and peace.  You are doing wonderful things for the Kingdom of God, by opening up your home to all the brothers and sisters to worship together, by giving financially to those who have been driven from their homes and jobs because of their faith, through simply encouraging and praying for all of us.  The hearts of all we who believe in Jesus as our Messiah are encouraged and upheld by you, our beloved brother.  I thank God for you, and for bringing us together in His love.”
