We see the shadow of us as believers and the redemptive work of Jesus at the cross in the book of Philemon. “Put it on my tab” so to speak, is exactly what The Lord allowed Jesus to do! It pleased God to crush him, for The Lord knew there’s power in the pressing. But before the power could come there had to be a pressing, there had to be a sacrificing. That’s exactly what Paul was asking Philemon to do. Sacrifice the old ideologies of punishment for a former slave turned thief and escapee and “put it on his tab” in order to receive Onesimus back as beloved brother. Sacrificing involves pressing, the pressing produces the power if we have the perspective to allow it to be produced!October 6, 2020 at 4:43 am #10487
Thank God Paul was able to press in on that restoration and show us that we, once as slaves are welcomed into the family of God, thanks to a loving Savior who paid the price! amen and amen sister!
