  • Paul pulled the rug out from under Philemon's anger towards Onesimus by reminding Philemon that Paul had forgiven Philemon as God forgave us.
  • Onesimus means useful. Paul played on this by stating that Onesimus was useless at one time before he accepted Christ.

  • Our God is with us right now!
  • If you were arrested as being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?
  • Psalm 30:5  "Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning."
  • Midnight is when you find yourself in a situation you have no control over.
  • God does His best work when we think it's too late.
  • God can do what no other power can do.
  • God showed for Daniel, David, Joseph, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and many other. Why don't you think He'll show up for you?

  • Be a witness for Christ.
  • Paul and Silas spoke to the jailer and prayed for him and with him. His life was changed and his entire family.
