what we once were...

Philemon 1:8-11

V 11 who was once unprofitable to you, but now is profitable to you and to me

Although Paul realized that Onesimus had indeed hurt Philemon with his thievery, he also realized that the man Philemon had once been was no more. He had been changed by the overwhelming power of salvation; this was a truth that Paul expected Philemon to know. How wonderful it is to realize that once we are saved we are so much more than we were once!
