The extraordinary will come through the regular practice of the ordinary. This holds true for so many things in life--including the work of gospel-ministry. The world will know the risen and exalted Lord when his people commit anew to the seemingly ordinary work of making peace. This devotional is an extended reflection on Paul's Letter to Philemon. Readers will be both moved and instructed in their call to serve as God's peacemakers. There is perhaps no greater need today among those who profess Christ as Lord and Savior than a renewed commitment to facilitate reconciliation in our divided world. ""Paul Jeon demonstrates the mind of a scholar and the heart of a pastor in this excellent daily devotional study of Paul's letter to Philemon. Dr. Jeon is faithful to the divinely inspired text while drawing out practical lessons for our relationships with fellow Christians today."" --James Anderson, Professor of Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary ""In our union with Jesus Christ we are reconciled to God. We are likewise called to pursue reconciliation with others. Philemon lays bare this calling in real time and space. Thank you Rev. Jeon for leading us through this letter in a deliberate devotion to God as we seek his grace to be ministers of reconciliation."" -- Irwyn L.
