"Making mature followers in all nations for Jesus Christ"
This week I got to hang out with some of my favourite professors and one of them used the word “mutuality.” I am so excited for the mutual ministry that the Lord has in store for us as we begin a new church year. Do you have people in your life who inspire, confront, and care for you that claim the feeling is mutual? As I study the book of Philemon, Paul, Philemon, and Onesimus are interdependent on each other. Together they experience forgiveness, fellowship and growth.
