Lesson: The Beauty of Reconciliation
Reading: Helping to restore a relationship  2014-10-28
Reference:  Philem. 10-21 
Phm 1:10  I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds: 
Phm 1:11  Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me: 
Phm 1:12  Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels: 
Phm 1:13  Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel: 
Phm 1:14  But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly. 
Phm 1:15  For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever; 
Phm 1:16  Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord? 
Phm 1:17  If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself. 
Phm 1:18  If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine account; 
Phm 1:19  I Paul have written it with mine own hand, I will repay it: albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides. 
Phm 1:20  Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord. 
Phm 1:21  Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.
