If every member of the church would study Philemon before writing to another brother, the church would benefit greatly. This letter, inspired by the Holy Spirit, is a gem to be treasured as a MODEL in the matter of courteous discourse. Paul had a specific object in mind and that was for Onesimus, a runaway slave, to be received warmly by Philemon. Who could doubt that, Philemon, having read this letter, would do anything but submit to Paul’s request?
