Onesimus hasn’t been of much use to you in the past, but now he is very useful to both of us.

Onesimus the slave was not very useful as a he is free in Christ and he is useful to both of us.  

As I walk in the liberty of being a slave to Christ, I can be very useful to Christ and to those with whom He has me in relationship.   Where I choose to resist His plan, I become a rebellious slave, a runaway slave, a slave who is fearful of her Master and one who has trouble with commitment; I am useless to everyone...except the enemy.  

Father, help me embrace that sweet freedom offered by my bondage to Your Son.  Holy Spirit, help me continue in the dying to self that I might live usefully to the praise of the Kingdom and the fame of the King's very great Name.
