Greetings from Paul, a prisoner for Jesus Christ, and from Timothy, our brother. To Philemon, our dear friend and worker with us.
One of the most striking features that I appreciate about Paul, was that he was never one to sit and be still. Even though he was imprisoned, he refused to be quiet.
Paul wrote an estimated 7 letters in captivity. The beauty of the captivity, was that his words were written and passed on to us. If he was freed, his wisdom may have never transferred down to us.
Despite the lowly circumstances, it was used for good. I pray that my negative situations can be used the same way.
