Sharing in the Faith (Philemon, Part 2)  

Philemon 1-7?: Paul, prisoner of King Jesus and Timothy our brother:

4 I give thanks to my God always remembering you in prayer 5 because I hear of your kiss of peace and love toward All Saints and of your faith in the Lord Jesus. 6 I pray that your sharing with us in the faith may energize your ever deepening understanding of every good thing we share in King Jesus. 7 Your love (for All Saints) has given me great joy and strength (in the battle), because you, brother, have rested and refreshed the hearts of All Saints (translated by Gregg Strawbridge.).
