Devo of the Week: Philemon, verses 8-9

“Though I am bold enough in Christ to command you to do your duty, yet I would rather appeal to you on the basis of love.” Duty or love?  Perhaps there are things we should just do, whether we feel like it or not; yet, when does our faith wane when a heart of love is not the engine that drives our actions?   What area of your life might need more love than duty these days?  Help me Holy Spirit, to gain the heart of Jesus Christ in all things that I might act on the basis of love. Amen.
