Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy our brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer, And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house: Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers, Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints; That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. (Philemon 1:1-6)
Today's Morsel: Does your faith communicate? What does your faith say about you? Does it say that you trust God? Does it say you are a true believer in Him? Or does it say something else. When our faith communicates, it pushes doubt and unbelief aside and standouts for others to see. Faith doesn't face facts; it never gives up. Faith defies all reasons. When your faith communicates, it is clearly visible by all. Paul told Philemon that he had heard of his love and faith, which he had toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints; That the communication of his faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. In others word, Philemon was allowing his faith to communicate to others. When a person's faith communicates, they cannot be offended nor hindered by others because their total reliance is in Christ. If you faint in the day of adversity, your faith, as well as your strength, may be small.
Sing: Faith can move mountains, mountains of fear and of doubt, faith can move mountains, so why don't you try your faith out.
Thought for Today: Faith is still required to please God.
