12.3.17 AUDIO AND SLIDE TRANSITION
After Paul gives Philemon four love incentives for reconciliation with Onesimus, he paints a vivid picture of forgiveness. Paul assumes Onesimusʼ debt as his own, reminds Philemon of Philemonʼs personal debt, and in faith urges Philemon to prepare to receive him after his imprisonment. Here we see a rich parallel to Christ’s work on our behalf and His coming return. Listen to learn what this episode from the early church tells us about our need to forgive.
