Philemon 10-14. Though Paul’s friend has been a great help to other Christians, Paul knows he could easily react badly to his ‘useless’ returning slave. So the apostle writes to impress upon his friend just how much Christ has changed Onesimus, emphasising his own love for this ‘useful’ believer. In this way he hopes the master will examine himself and see his slave in a revolutionary, new way – a Christian way.
