 Philemon 1:1-7 Faith in Christ and love to Him should unite saints more closely than any outward relation can unite the people of the world.

He inquired concerning his friends, as to the truth, growth, and fruitfulness of their graces, their faith in Christ, and love to him, and to all the saints. The good which Philemon did, was the matter of joy and comfort to him and others, who therefore desired that he would continue and abound in good fruits, more and more, to God’s honour.
