Of Command, His
Roles request Christ gives me the courage to tell you what to do. 9 But I would rather ask you to do it simply because of love. Yes, as someone in jail for Christ, I beg you to help Onesimus! He is like a son to me because I led him to Christ here in jail.
Before this, he was useless to you, but now he is useful both to you and to me. Sending Onesimus back to you makes me very sad. I would like to keep him here with me, where he could take your place in helping me while I am here in prison for
preaching the good news.
But I wont do anything unless you agree to it first. I want your act of kindness to come from your heart, and not be something you feel forced to do. Philemon 8-14
