我 現 在 打 發 他 親 自 回 你 那 裡 去 , 他 是 我 心 上 的 人 。

                                                               腓 利 門 書 1:12

I am sending him back to you, sending my very heart.

    What I got today from Jesus is: How do you raise up your very heart?
    What I got from Jesus today is a call to raise up our very heart. The story of the book of Philemon is full of love and reconciliation. Onesimus, a slave that had departed from his master Philemon, was returning with this epistle wherein Paul beseeched Philemon to receive him as a "brother beloved".

    Philemon was a wealthy Christian (possibly a bishop) of the house church that met in his home in Colosse. The way of how Paul received Onesimus, protected and trained him then sent him back to his master is a classic example of love and reconciliation. 

     Paul addressed Onesimus, a slave as his very heart. That is an unusual way to accept someone who does not deserve that acceptance. There are so many rejection all around us nowadays including the church. How can we learn from Paul's example of what acceptance should be? How can we follow Paul's example to raise up our very heart?  

Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to be able to accept more people and give them a chance to become a true disciple of you.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
