We count our steps with a Fitbit. We record our calorie intake with an iPhone app. We regulate our exercise with shiny monitors on our exercise equipment. But how do we keep up with our spiritual progress?
Can you imagine gathering for worship and having a letter read out loud that contained a rebuke to you from a well-known and trustworthy spiritual leader? That’s pretty much what happened to Philemon. The church in Colossae met in his home. Paul’s letter, Colossians, was delivered by a group that included none other than Onesimus, a slave who seems to have taken something from Philemon and clearly run away (Colossians 4:7-9, Philemon 1:18).
We don’t need the Bible to know that God exists. That’s what Paul explains in the first chapter of Romans. God has made the world in such a way that we can perceive his eternal power and divine nature.
