Prayers with Paul and Phil

February 23rd, 2016 by Jason Leave a reply »

I picked up a new Bible a few weeks ago from Crossway.  I really like the way they have put these books together.  Nice soft bindings, white pages, and a font that is easy to read.  Plus they use the ESV, which is a version that I am really enjoying these days.

Anyway, I got this book, because it is small and fits in my pocket.  I was tearing up a bible by traveling with it that I didn’t want to tear up.  So, since it’s smaller, I started reading the one-page letters this past weekend, as it seems so much easier to tackle with everything just on that little 4X6 page.  I tackled Titus, which is actually a few pages,  and Philemon.

Oh Philemon, a little letter full of all sorts of encouragement.  I was reminded of this bit after my post yesterday.  Yeah, this is good.

4 I thank my God always when I remember you in my prayers, 5because I hear of your love and of the faith that you have toward the Lord Jesus and for all the saints, 6and I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective for the full knowledge of every good thing that is in us for the sake of Christ.7For I have derived much joy and comfort from your love, my brother, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you. Philemon 1:407 (ESV)
