Reading for Friday, Oct 5: Philemon
“…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.” (v6)
This verse has quickly become one of my favorites. As followers of Jesus, we are sharers — sharers of the tremendous gift we have been given. We have received a blessing from God, but God intends for us to in turn BECOME a blessing to others. In essence, we exist for the benefit of the world, that others might see our faith and come to full knowledge of every good thing that is ours in Christ.
